Today at noon went with my brother (54) and his 2 kids (8 + 10) to the museum hill cafe for a couple of desserts and coffee. It was deserted but for 2 other parties on the large outside patio. Since we had seated ourselves my brother went inside to let the staff know and promptly/archly was told we should have come in and waited to be seated. So then we look at menus and I ask the waiter if they have a dessert menu. In again a pretty rude manner, I am told yes but we have to leave this area and sit in a different area of the patio. The demeanor, facial expression in both cases were such that we decided to alleviate the staff's stress by removing ourselves from the premises prior to exposing them to further troubles from guests they clearly don't wish to have.

Everything about this eatery is mediocre. Whenever I perused the menue,I began wondering if menue writers are elegible for Pulitzers or at least Coldecot childrens fiction awards. The impression you get from this menue is that this is the best food you will never forget. However when the food arrives it is a big disappointment, tasteless herbless, tepid and nothing to do with the flowing prose. The waiter was huge,extremely rude and thought he was the life and soul of our party. He was not. Not long after we got there the Paparazzi arrived. Three to be exact all loaded with perfectly obvious big game cameras. The only big game there, was the huge rude waiter. That was our 4th( Invitational) visit there and out of compassion for myself and my husband, the very very very very last.

This cafe would not be in business if it were anywhere else. It's the only place to eat on Museum Hill. Mediocre food at high prices. Snobby service. If you plan a day out at the Hill, break it up and go elsewhere for a meal.

Since Museum Hill requires at least a day to see them all, it is helpful to have a cafe on site. The cafe has outside and inside seating. You submit your order and pay at the register and they deliver to your table. Service staff were helpful and prompt. We ordered soup of the day (cauliflower cheese which was tasty), chicken tortilla soup (too spicy) and guacamole with chips and felt they were adequate.

Had lunch between tours of the Museum of International Folk Art and the Museum of Indian Arts & Cultures. Great Mexican and New Mexican food, large portions and good service.
