Museum Cafe is a European-inspired bistro serving the freshest organic ingredients, grown from local farmers and blending them into flavorful breakfast and lunch dishes, spiced with a dash of Italian flair. Museum Cafe is located within the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, overlooking the Pacific Ocean in beautiful La Jolla, California.

We invite you to stop by the Museum Cafe for breakfast or lunch. We are open 7 days a week from 8:30am to 3pm. We serve breakfast Monday to Friday 8:30am to 11.30am then lunch until 3pm. On the weekends, enjoy our Brunch menu serving breakfast and lunch all day.

Imagine a scrumptious Candied Pecan Salad with free-range grilled chicken, imported gorgonzola and fresh Granny Smith green apples all artistically placed over organic greens. Or sample our B.L.A.T sandwich which includes apple wood smoked bacon, crisp green leaf lettuce, California avocado and vine ripened tomatoes stacked on fresh focaccia bread. Or just stop in for a quick cup of Giuseppe’s famous steaming Cappuccino with a foamy crest while enjoying the breeze over La Jolla Cove.

Stop by before or after you visit the galleries or Museum Bookstore. There are special cafe discounts for MCASD Members. If you have the time we urge you to tour the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego’s La Jolla location or visit Memberships available.
