Looking for a quick lunch spot while exploring the Portland arts district this summer? Stop in to the Museum Café by Aurora Provisions! No admission is required to dine in the Café which is located in the lower ground floor of the Museum, in the midst of our decorative glass gallery.
We invited the Johnson family to have lunch at the Café and give us feedback on their experience while enjoying delicious local food from Aurora Provisions. Nick, Reeve, Sadie, and Clover dined on the vegetable sandwich (roasted Portobello mushrooms, roasted tomatoes, house pickled curry zucchini, fresh fennel, and whipped feta spread on Standard Baking Co. focaccia bread), special salad (fresh field greens, figs, toasted hazelnuts, and goat cheese tossed in balsamic vinaigrette), broccoli cheddar soup, peanut butter and raspberry jelly, and macaroni and cheese.
The fresh fare was a hit with Nick and Reeve while the cupcakes were the highlight for Sadie and Clover!
Tips for families:
• Kid-friendly fare: macaroni and cheese, peanut butter and jelly (grape, raspberry, and strawberry), and sandwiches made with your choice of meat and cheese. Please don’t hesitate to ask the Café staff for kid-friendly selections—we are happy to suggest something yummy!
• Children’s books can be found on the left side of the Café bar to read while you wait.
• High chairs are available.
• Closed lid plastic cups are great for beverages. When you order, please ask the Café staff for this option to go with your meal.
