What better place to feed yourself and your creative spirit than at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts? The SMFA Cafe is here to help fuel your art with all kinds of goodness: classic egg sandwiches, acai bowls, freshly-baked muffins, customized burgers, wraps, salads and paninis, and classic comfort food from around the world. So, take a food break - for your art's sake.

We get that you are a crowd of creativity – with creative tastes! The SMFA Café can make you a customized burger or roll you up a wrap just how you like it.  If all you’d like is a cappuccino to get your day started, – we’ve got you!  If you’re needing a bit more - add a freshly baked muffin or a very popular breakfast egg sandwich.  For a dash of flair – add an iced tea.  Always available are crisp, fresh salad, hot paninis. We can make you one hot off the grill or your preference is more chilly, visit the gran and go case for both vegan and grilled chicken. Want it super quick, just use our Mobile Order App to order. The app lets you know when it’s ready so just come and get it – paints, cameras, and welding gear in hand.  We <3 ART!

What to have: "The burger bar! I mean I can have anything I want!" And you can get it Veggie too. Daily specials are worth checking - the Chicken Parm and Tikka Masala are my favs!"

Jumbononymous Tip: "If you like to eat late, get your food early and take it to the studio. What a great selection? Cookies for late night are a must have."
