Great place to take a break after seeing the art in the museum. I had a late morning snack with a croissant, tea and a mineral water. The menu has tasty selections. Nice decor or eat outside in the sculpture garden.

After visiting the museum we always eat at the bistro. You can't beat eating outside with the sounds of the water feature and statures . I would recommend more tables so that when you have large parties you can still accommodate the others guests ....More

Such a cool place. Surrounded by art and sculptures; French teas and Italian espresso. One of a kind wall paper. Funky, yet classy vibe. Casual and sophisticated. I had the cold pressed juice then went for a hike. Delightful.
