Foursquare Tips

  • All museum food should be so good
  • I usually sit by the great windows. Good tip.
  • MoMA's Caf 2 is not a tourist trap. Surprisingly, it is an efficient restaurant that delivers great food at a reasonable price. If you need a bite to eat while at MoMA, visit Caf 2.
  • The cafe changed from ordering by yourself to a more formal sit down business. This is in my top 10 of things I hate when great places turn into restaurants.
  • the most amazing polenta i've ever had.
  • Changed for the worse since they removed self-service. Food is still good, staff is rude and slow.
  • The portobello panini is delicious.
  • Rigatoni. Do it!
  • Excelente atencin y comida. Se recomienda la Polenta y los Rigatoni.
  • Stay away from the pork chops, they under cook it and tell you that it tastes better that way. If you order it, tell them to do it well done to not risk getting sick.
  • The food is great but the staff just might spill a bottle of beer on you, so keep an eye out.
  • The kids' pasta is delicious!!! Actually, everything is delicious!
  • The creamy polenta is out of this world. Huge portion and very filling.
  • They have free WiFi here.
  • Try the lentil soup and quinoa salad; they are a perfect combo for lunch.
  • Dica para os Brazucas que visitarem o MoMA: tem um caf bem legal no 2 andar que serve comidas bem gostosas. A salada Market Green c salmo defumado uma boa pedida e os preos no so to salgados.
  • El museo es el hit, obviamente. Este caf no tanto, aunque el servicio es esmerado y de buena calidad, lo que ped ese da no estuvo del todo satisfactorio. La cerveza brooklyn fue un buen hallazgo
  • Simple and indescribable Italian cuisine from Chef Lynn Bound. If you don't have a museum ticket or you aren't museum members, you can't enter to Caf 2. Portion size is normal. Not Americans :)
  • Nice place... Not the best service, though.
  • Forget all "top NYC cheesecake" lists. They have the best one here!
