Each time we visit the area we look forward to having a nice lunch at the Museum Hill Café. Unfortunately, this time, the service was very poor and also unfriendly! Never once did the man seating us, greet us or smile during the process. Later...More

Went for brunch on a Sunday. Red polenta with an egg was delicious. On a beautiful day sitting outside was ideal. Service wasn’t super friendly but enjoyed the small jazz duo inside. Added to ambiance. Would recommend if going to nearby museums.

There wasn't any music when we were there. People are engaged in speaking about the museums they've seen. We were at lunch. Outside might be better.
