We live almost an hour away from Ft. Worth, but enjoy our visits to the Modern Museum at least twice a month - always on a Sunday when we can have a great brunch (make sure to call for reservations to get a good seat by the windows) then enjoy a first class art movie and a free day roaming the museum's displays. The food at the cafe is always a cut above the norm, actually MANY cuts above; they are using ingredients and combinations rarely found around here and it is so refreshing in a sea of BBQ and fast food. The menu changes often as well - we stopped for drinks and appetizers one evening as well before the 5PM movie, great choices and plenty of food to fill us up - be aware the cafe only serves lunch and brunch during the days and DINNER ONLY on Friday nights. The views of the pool and the wintertime lights in the trees at dark are wonderful! This is a first class place.

We enjoyed a tasty lunch while visiting museums in the Fort Worth Cultural District. Fast service, reasonable prices, too.

It was the second best meal at a museum, after the Restaurant at Getty Center in Los Angeles.

Recommendations: Quinoa salad, beef gyro, turkey Brie, Bert fennel soup.

My wife and I live in Fort Worth and went for the first time to Cafe Modern last night. I am upset at myself for only finding Cafe Modern now after many years living in Fort Worth. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. I also was surprised at how reasonably priced the food was!! I highly recommend Cafe Modern and we will be going back regularly.

Dining at the Café was one of the highlights of our visit to Fort Worth. We were there early so were able to get a choice seat next to the pool. The waitress was very informed, polite, and accommodating when I couldn't make a decision on my order. It was a lovely way to spend our lunch hour. The flowers on the tables were exquisite.

We ate lunch here during our visit to the museum. We ate inside, but the outside area is stunning. Shimmering water out the window, great service and food.
