Now Open: The New Walters Cafe
Relax and refuel during your visit to the Walters Art Museum at the newly renovated Walters Cafe. Located on the first level of the museum, the cafe has been updated with contemporary decor, a new menu and a renewed commitment to environmental sustainability. “We hope that it will feel vibrant, comfortable and bright,” says Andrea B. & John H. Laporte Director Julia Marciari-Alexander, adding that “the Walters Cafe adds a unique experience to the museum and to the historic Mt. Vernon neighborhood.”
The Walters has partnered with local businesses such as City Seeds, Mouth Party Caramels, Ceremony Coffee and Scotty Cakes to provide a changing selection of fresh salads, sandwiches, sweets and snacks, as well as beer and wine.
Adjacent to the Museum Store, the cafe is a perfect spot for afternoon coffee with friends, or visitors can take advantage of the museum’s free wi-fi for a working lunch. On Thursday nights, when the museum is open late, visitors can enjoy a glass of wine before touring the galleries or attending a performance on the Sculpture Court.
The Walters Cafe is open Wednesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and until 8:30 p.m. on Thursday evenings. Free wi-fi is available throughout the museum. Members receive a 10% discount on purchases at the cafe and at the store.
