Nearby Food Options

During the academic year, the closest spot to grab a bite to eat is Etta's, located in Steinberg Hall directly south of the Museum building, offering coffee, espresso drinks, pastries, and a number of soup, sandwich, and salad options. Hours vary so check the website before your visit.

Kayak's, a cafe featuring a rustic, mountain decor and fantastic coffee and food options, and Bobo Noodlehouse, serving fresh and inventive South East Asian fare, are both located within a block of the Museum, near the intersection of Forest Park Parkway and Skinker Avenue. The Museum is also only about a mile south of the wealth of restaurants, shops, and other unique venues found in the famous Delmar Loop.
