We went to visit the Museum and stopped to have lunch at the courtyard: the service was outstanding from the get-go, we were promptly seated outside and in the shade. The menu was explained to us and I went with the suggested Turkey and melted Brie sandwich. It was divine- the use if raisin bread was an inspiration.
Well worth a stop before or after your visit to the museum!

We were enjoying the Spanish festival at the Heard Museum on a beautiful sunny day and decided to try the Courtyard Cafe for lunch. We watched numerous plates of delicious looking food go by us enroute to tables in the courtyard and couldn't resist any longer. I ordered Posole a dish I had never tried before. It was so flavourful and delicious! My husband ordered chicken quesadillas and they were stuffed full of goodness. We ate listening to the mariachi band that was there to entertain festival goers and it made for a delightful backdrop to our lunch. The serving staff were friendly and attentive and prices were more than reasonable. Loved it.

Pick a table near the fountain so you can enjoy viewing the water while dining on some excellent food. My partner had chicken tacos which had hot fresh corn shells and nicely spiced meat. She really enjoyed them. I had an excellent salad which included their excellent house dressing. We were there at about 2:00 pm so it wasn't crowded and service was excellent.

we had a great lunch following a visit to the museum. I had the tinga chicken served with salad which was wonderful. The waitress was a little eccentric but such a lovely person who took a lot of time with us - she and the food made for a nice experience. The food is fresh and light - definitely worth a visit.

We like to come here after church. Never had anything that we didn't like -- they have delicious sandwiches and soups. When it's not too hot (or too cold) sitting out in the Heard courtyard is really pleasant.
