Tantalise your tastebuds with our new spring menu at the Museum Cafe. Relax at our North Terrace location just inside the Museum's glass wall. Sit inside by the Balaena whale skeleton, or dine alfresco style and enjoy the constant going's-on of the Cultural Precinct.
We serve quality Vittoria Coffee, and a range of cool and refreshing beverages including SA-produced wines by the glass.
