“a good quality museum cafe”
Reviewed April 20, 2012

The food was good, the service was just fine, and the Cafe Express was actually express. A little pricey, but if you need a quick meal it's perfect.

“One of my favorite places to eat.”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

For a museum cafeteria, this is top of the line. Wine as well as a gourmet assortment of salads and sandwiches.

“Great food... a bit pricey.”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

Great food... a bit pricey. At least it's a good restaurant. Unfortunately the Museum of Natural Science only has a McDonalds.

“Almost Cafe Express”
Reviewed December 13, 2011

It was a lot better than I expected in the museum they were just a little too proud of their food. A touch on the expensive and pretentious side. Nice outdoor area and reasonable hours. I think they do specials sometimes.

“what a GEM”
Reviewed November 27, 2011

We were trying to get a lunch in before a flight home. What a surprise! AMAZING food and great selection plus a BAR! you could leave a significant other in there to watch a football game while you browse REALLY great art, if they are not into art. and did I mention the food was really good. great selection and well displayed. The best money spent in a while for food value.
