Museum Cafe is a European-inspired bistro serving the freshest organic ingredients, grown from local farmers and blending them into flavorful breakfast and lunch dishes, spiced with a dash of Italian flair from owner, Giuseppe Ciuffa, of GIUSEPPE Restaurants & Fine Catering's who originates outside of Rome, Italy. Museum Cafe is located within the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, overlooking the Pacific Ocean in beautiful La Jolla, California.
We invite you to stop by the Museum Cafe for breakfast or lunch. We are open 7 days a week from 8 AM to 3 PM. We serve breakfast Monday to Friday 8am to 11.30am then lunch until 3pm. On the weekends we have a Brunch menu serving breakfast and lunch all day.
Imagine a scrumptious Candied Pecan Salad with free-range grilled chicken, imported gorgonzola and fresh Granny Smith green apples all artistically placed over organic greens. Or sample our B.L.A.T sandwich which includes apple wood smoked bacon, crisp green leaf lettuce, California avocado and vine ripened tomatoes stacked on fresh focaccia bread. Or just stop in for a quick cup of Giuseppe’s famous, steaming Cappuccino with a foamy crest while enjoying the breeze over La Jolla Cove.
