Food was good. Service was just OK, but waitress was friendly. I ordered the chicken soup which was yummy and homemade. My husband ordered the fritatta which was so-so. A bit pricy, but not unreasonable. Nice outdoor seating.

I recently had lunch with a friend at the museum hill cafe. The restaurant is located in a lovely location slightly outside the centre of town. Nestled between two museums, it has beautiful views. Although we did not have reservations we only had to wait...More

An excellent respite between the Museums on the Hill. The view is wonderful with seating inside and outside. Asian shrimp tacos were very tasty and the sandwiches choices are varied. I plan to start at the top of the special items and work down to...More

Went for brunch on a Sunday. Red polenta with an egg was delicious. On a beautiful day sitting outside was ideal. Service wasn’t super friendly but enjoyed the small jazz duo inside. Added to ambiance. Would recommend if going to nearby museums.

I met a friend there for lunch and luckily neither of us were in a hurry because the service was slow. My corn custard with poblano cream sauce was excellent. Wonderful flavor and subtle heat. Although a bit expensive for an appetizer consisting of inexpensive...More

We waited about 10 minutes to get seated. There was no one there to sent us. Then took a while to get our order placed. I asked for a different cheese and salad dressing on my Cobb salad. Didn't get either substitution correct. When we...More

After visiting one of the museums, we enjoyed a lunch here. I had amazing nacho's, dessert and great coffee. The best nacho's I have ever had. There was live music on the veranda. The service was excellent. The seating has views of the large outdoor...More

This seems like a go-to place for the ladies who lunch around here. And they don't seem to connect this dining choice with attendance at any of the hill museums. When you arrive, you'll see the diners cramping themselves into the available tables on the...More

There wasn't any music when we were there. People are engaged in speaking about the museums they've seen. We were at lunch. Outside might be better.
