I had a sandwich with tea and it was very good and the cost was reasonable. The atmosphere was pleasant and we enjoyed talking with other people there.

If the museum is serving Lobster Bisque, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND trying it. Excellent at a very good price. The small roll that comes with the soup is very good. The dining areas are attractive with artful decoration all around. Lots of glass in this dining gallery comes from the Glass Pavilion studios across the street.

One of my favorite places to enjoy lunch in Toledo. After visiting the beautiful Toledo Museum of Art it's easy to dine in the lovely Museum Cafe. The menu is fresh, creative and appealing. Definitely worth the visit!

Chef's special (ham & cheese panini) & turkey and Brie wrap w/ side salad. White sangria was lovely. Both of our meals were fresh, delicious, and had generous portions. Prices were easy on the wallet. Employees (cashiers & attendants) were friendly and gracious. I'd definitely include this cafe in your visit to this phenomenol museum.

If you read the reviews on the Museum Cafe at the Toledo Art Museum, you will see the inherent limitations of a travel review site: The "restaurant" category includes everything from cafes to fast food, to cloth tablecloth fine restaurants. This is an excellent cafeteria/cafe that provides a very good experience, but it's hard to compare it with a full-service... More

Very nice, simple menu in a casual setting (order food upon entering, self-serve beverage service, food brought to your table). The setting is wonderful especially the glass atrium which feels like eating out-of-doors. Simple sandwich/wrap/salad offerings at a reasonable price for generous serving. Unhurried and relaxed atmosphere surrounded by beautiful things from a marvelous museum. I have been coming here... More

We visited on a weekday afternoon. It is a cafeteria style restaurant. An unpleasant lady took our order. That was all forgotten by a very nice lunch experience . The dining room is beautiful . The food was delicious! I had a pulled pork sandwich and it was very gourmet. Very glad we tried this place and will look forward... More
