Had lunch here. Food was OK, but a little pricy A chicken salad sandwich was $8. We did not have anything to drink, so that kept our cost down.

Laying just outside of the main museum, the Michigan Cafe has you order with the cashier (fast food style) from a smallish menu then seat yourself and the food/beverages are brought out to you. It is not fancy but the food is good and convenient...More

Sometime wary of food served by museums but this was a real surprise. Fresh trout! Delicious, but would have preferred it without kumon. Friendly staff.

If you’re in the museum and need lunch, this is a decent choice. Food was fine. They bring it on a tray after you order. They also clear the tables, but they were really running behind when we were there. The downside is that there...More

We arrived for lunch today and it looked like a pretty nice place. We ordered, and the total was forty dollars for our family of three's modest order, which was suprising, since this didn't look like a fancy restaurant. It took forever for our food...More
