Experiencing the Cafés

Early Morning
Stop by for a hand-pulled espresso and warm pastries before setting off to explore the museum.

The Legion of Honor Café presents a serene environment for dining on soups, salads, sandwiches and hot entrees with a view of Lincoln Park and the Marin Headlands.  Outdoor dining is available seasonally.

The de Young Café, with its inviting view of the Barbro Osher Sculpture Garden, offers soups, salads, sandwiches and hot entrees available for dining in the café or take away for an alfresco lunch in the beautiful environs of Golden Gate Park.

To relax and recharge after being inspired by great art, visitors can enjoy a traditional European Weinpause at the de Young or an Entre Repas at the Legion of Honor with a selection of small, savory nibbles accompanied by selected wines.
