Good food choices - the soup and sandwich was a tasty choice. Very friendly service. The inside space is dark but the outdoor space is exceptional with sculpture water features and shade!

Nice little cafe in the Palm Springs Art Museum. Plenty of seating and good food. We can recommend any of the Panini sandwiches on the menu followed by their big cookies. Very delicious food and friendly service.

The Muse Cafe in the Palm Springs Art Museum offers typical Museum food and drink. If possible, I would recommend eating at nearby restaurants. However, a good cold drink when it is really hot outside is appreciated.

We wouldn't have gone looking for this place, in the basement of the Arts Museum, but were at the museum over the lunch period and decided to give it a try. The food was great and reasonably priced! While the ambiance is a bit stark,...More
