The Museum Café at the Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) is now serving its spring, summer menu, featuring healthy, flavorful dishes for the warmer months. Returning to the menu is a selection of salads along with new gnocchi dish options and four new sandwiches.

“The seasonal menu gives the Museum Café a great opportunity to showcase the wonderful vegetables grown right here in the Chef’s Garden,” said Chef Joe Felix. “The dishes are designed to be either a lunch or dinner selection since the Museum sees visitors during both meal times.”

While the menu has changed, the white butcher paper covering the tables remains, allowing patrons young and old alike to explore their creativity using the provided colored pencils.

The menu, which is rotated twice a year, features both vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. Among the vegan options is the Green Goddess sandwich and the carrot soup, served daily.

The sandwiches are served with either a side salad, fruit salad, or chips. Sandwich selections include strawberry-rhubarb chicken, walleye BLT, eggplant parmigiana, and green goddess.

There are several dishes featuring the café’s handmade gnocchi, including alfredo chicken, BBQ pork, Santa Fe beef, and artichoke piccata. A weekly chef’s special and a half-pound brisket burger with rotating gourmet toppings are also included in the new menu.

The kid’s menu features a variety of childhood favorites, such as the pan-seared gnocchi and cheese, Italian bread pizza, and grilled three-cheese sandwich as well as hot dogs and mini cheeseburgers.

There are also several grab n’ go items for when time is of the essence. Those selections include cranberry-walnut chicken salad on wheat, tuna salad wrap, Olli snack packs, hummus & pretzels, and yogurt. For sweets and snacks, the menu includes fresh fruit salad, trail mix, chocolate brownies, peanut butter rice crispy treats, cupcakes, chips, and cookies.

The Museum Café is open Tuesday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. For more information or to see the full menu, visit toledomuseum.org.
