Fresh and delicious

With a great range of fresh and delicious salads, sandwiches and baking, including vegetarian and gluten-free options, there is something to appeal to everyone at the Museum Café. Tempting treats are ready made each day for your selection. From 11am to 2pm, you can also choose from our freshly made-to-order lunch menu. 

Quality coffee and beverages
