DINING AT THE CANTOR
Tour groups are welcome to enjoy food and drink outside the museum on the picnic tables in the Rodin Sculpture Garden before or after their tours on a first-come, first-served basis. If tour attendees are interested in dining at the Cool Cafe, please note the following guidelines:
- The Cool Cafe is best suited for small groups of 4 or fewer people. Most tour groups exceed that size and may not be accommodated during the lunch rush (noon to 2 pm).
- The Cool Cafe does not accept to-go orders or reservations from tour groups.
- Tour groups may not bring outside food, drink, or decor into the Cool Cafe.
