We went there for the atmosphere and they actually had a burger on the menu. I was afraid they would just go through the motions to placate carnivores such as myself. In fact, it was very good. Very pleased. And my wife enjoyed her salad....More

Always delicious and the service is friendly and attentive. We ordered the daily soup and sandwich and the fall salad. Both were the appropriate size for lunch so we did not have to carry leftovers around the museum.

MGS Cafe is located on the water side of the museum. It is a perfect place to eat if you are visiting the museum. The menu isn't extensive but will suit just about any taste. The food is well done and reasonably priced.
