For a museum cafe, the food is better and the prices lower than most. It is a god place to get a bite to eat before your museum visit.

This nice little cafe is in the Museum of the American Revolution. I has a nice selection of pastries, light salads, sandwiches and soups. It is a great place to take a break while visiting the Museum.

Pleasantly surprised by offerings at this restaurant attached to the museum of the American Revolution. Clam chowder was great; flatbread good; pork sandwich also good. unusual cookies near the cash register and selection of all sorts of beverages was a plus.

Great place to take a break from the museum viewing. They had some healthy fare and cold drinks for us. It is new and clean and cheerful. Sit inside or out. Minus one star for high prices - $10 plus tip for two sodas and...More

Although the slick stark cafe at the terrific new Museum of the American Revolution is attractive, it isn't cheap & after immersion in noble American history, what a turnoff to hear Frank Sinatra crooning on the sound system! Listening to Sinatra in the context of...More

The Museum was so good that we figured the café would be also and it was. They offered sandwiches, bowls, salads, hot entrees, quiches, desserts, drinks and even served beer. The café has outdoor seating along 3rd street and is open to the general public....More
