The chef's featured recipe for Aug. '17 is "Pork with Napales (cactus pads), rice and flour tortillas". Delicate and delightful and a perfect selection for our visitors from Australia. They said it was the best dish they had while in AZ. We ate inside as...More

For museum cafes, this is a 10! Most of them are uninspired and drab--along with limited food options which are not well prepared or served (in fact, many do not have waiters--just order and pick up at the counter). Here, you not only get a...More

Pork Tacos were tasty. Service was good. If you are visiting the museum and don't know where else to go, this is a good option.

Nice place to stop for coffee and a snack when you get tired of wandering the wonderful Heard Museum. Good service.

The cafe was very busy and we had a bit of a wait, but well worth it. Homemade hummus from the tepary bean was delicious as a starter and the salads, soup and sandwiches did not disappoint. The cafe is small so seating is limited,...More

My sister and I recently ate here while visiting the museum. They are usually only open for lunch. They have a limited menu of freshly-prepared southwestern and Native American-inspired items (salads, sandwiches and a couple of other dishes) but it was easy enough to find...More

We took a break from the galleries for a late lunch. Servings were quite large, could have been split for a lighter lunch. Chilaquiles were so cheesy good, but pretty heavy fare for a summer meal. Side salad was fresh...would ask for something other than...More
