If you are at the Musical Instrument Museum this is a great place to eat. Many selections including vegetarian at reasonable prices. Wine, though, is $9 for not much.

Very good food for a cafeteria style eatery. My sons found food they like, and my husband and I were pleasantly surprised at the selection for us. Great break during your visit to the MIM!

Museum proper is worth at least a day's visit, which means the need to stop and refuel. Easily done here. Good salads, along with lots of hot choices. As with the rest of the museum, very clean, very attractive. Very friendly staff. Surprisingly reasonable prices.
