Gone are the days when museum goers had to put up with day old sandwiches wrapped in plastic. This cafe is one of a growing number of true restaurants attached to a museum where you can get a quality meal at a pretty reasonable price. There were four of us and we had soup, sandwiches, salads and drinks that appealed to each. Yes, it is cafeteria style, but the staff are so friendly and helpful, you almost felt you were being "served". Would have liked the out-front menu be more specific that it was only listing that day's "specials" - as there were many more choices once you got inside. And the outdoor seating area was just great.

While in the MIM, it is worth calling here for something to eat. The staff are friendly and the food is good.

The food here is fresh and no matter what your dietary preference, you will find something. Vegan, vegetarian or typical American food, are all available here. The grilled vegetable burger (no meat) is really good. So was the vegetarian coconut and chick pea soup.

If you're in town and need a place to relax check out the Compass Arizona Grill. It's worth the visit. The manager, Billy Steadman and Sheryl, our service provided a welcoming experience. If I'm in town again, I'm sure to check out the scenery again. The cocktails were great, the bruschetta was well prepared. Thanks for the hospitality!!
