The Story of Texas Café
Enjoy the Texas-inspired menu and the Texas-sized view.
Join us at The Story of Texas Café for a tasty lunch or a power-up snack before you tour the Museum. Stop in after your visit for a relaxing cup of coffee. You're welcome to enjoy food and beverages in the Texas-style indoor dining area or on the outside patio where you can get a glimpse of the Texas State Capitol. No museum admission ticket is required for a visit to the Café.
Group lunch orders are available from the Café menu. You must submit a lunch order form with payment five (5) business days prior to your group's visit. You can also submit a tax-exempt form if your group would like to claim tax exemption.
If you would like to place a lunch order for your school or tour group, please fill out the online lunch order form at least seven (7) days prior to your visit to ensure availability.
