Cafe Re-Fresh

New look and fresh choices coming soon!

The cafe is closed and will reopen in February 2017 in a redesigned space with a new menu that puts a unique spin on Texas favorites.

Recognized by Zagat, Yelp, The Austin Chronicle, and Austin Food Magazine, the owner of several Austin restaurants, including Delicious on South Lamar, is bringing a distinctive vision to the Museum's newly redesigned cafe. The cafe will feature Texas favorites with an emphasis on comfort food. With a philosophy of homemade, locally sourced, healthy, tasty food, many items, from sauces to gelato, will be made in-house.

To learn more about the Bullock Museum's cafe reopening, follow the Museum on Facebook and Twitter, or sign up to receive email updates on this page.

Looking for a place to eat during cafe construction? The Capitol Grill inside the Texas State Capitol just north of the museum offers a convenient dining option for museum visitors.
