This museum cafe is enjoyable and airy right in the art museum. a bit pricey at 10 to 15$ a sandwich but tasty! The cuban is very good and also the chef salad is very good! not too large and great bacon and blue cheese! The service is very good , enjoy!

Although the minimalist style is typical for a museum cafe, the lovely courtyard it overlooks added a special touch to the ambiance. The food was very good- fresh and artfully prepared- plus the service was excellent!

We stopped in for a quick bite and tea. We were seated immediately and our tea and food arrived shortly thereafter. Quiet atmosphere made it easy to converse with friends.

You really need to stop here for lunch! Then take in the art if you have a few extra minutes! It's that good. Large sandwiches made to your specifications if the menu isn't exactly what you want. Seasonal specials are out of this world. I came with my wife to visit the Art Museum, but will come back just to... More

We typically schedule our visits to the CAM so we can partake of a tasty lunch at the café. Any of the meals I've taken there have been very good, if not excellent. If you try anything, so for the cream of tomato soup... delicious (the vegetable beef soup is also very good and hearty). The wait staff has always... More

Good restaurant / cafe inside the Cincinnati Art Museum. Nice views of museum inner gardens from floor to ceiling windows. Open kitchen fixing sandwiches, soups and salads. Give their sweet tomato soup a try. It is a delicious way to start your tour!

When the feet get tired after wandering around you need a break. It was too cold to be outside but must be nice in summer. I had the brie and fig jam toasted rye sandwhich which was very good and a bit unusual- I hadn't seen any other of the good reviews until now. Washed down with a glass of... More

The terrace has a new menu. We ordered sandwiches with fruit. My sandwich was a grilled cheese (brie and fig preserves). When it arrived it was cold. The waitress was very apologetic and quickly got me another sandwich. It was worth the wait for the hot one! Absolutely the best grilled cheese sandwich. Brie cheese will be my new favorite!...

Had lunch with a friend and we both enjoyed an Apple Walnut Salad. The menu is small, yet offers variety and the kitchen was very accommodating to special requests. Our server was very pleasant, efficient. We dined outside in a gorgeous courtyard. Lovely experience.

One of my favorite activities is visitng museums and including a visit to their cafe or restaurant. The Cincinnati Art Museum is one of those where you can enjoy the actual museum, then refresh yourself at the Terrace Cafe.
