Toledo Museum of Art gives its café a makeoverWritten by Vanessa Olson | | firstname.lastname@example.org
If the café at the Toledo Museum of Art were a canvas, it would be getting a few new brush strokes.
But since it’s a café, it’s getting some upgrades.
The café, which overlooks the green museum grounds, features lunch items like soups, salads, sandwiches and baked goods. The café also has locally roasted Flying Rhino coffee, with the most popular menu item being a sandwich called the Van Gogh.
For the renovation, Erika Rapp, director of culinary and special events for the museum, and café chef, will change the menu. She will continue to feature a light fare lunch menu, but the new style will be seasonal contemporary.
“I like to make whatever is in prime form for the season,” Rapp said. “I’ve always changed my menus based on the time of year.”
The café will also go from a cafeteria to a semi, full-service dining area, which will undergo a renovation.
“The space itself is going to look different, more up-to-date,” Rapp said. “People will be able to order and then be served. It will have a much more hip, modern feel to it.”
The dates of the renovation are not confirmed, but Rapp is staying busy creating her menu.
“I have a style of food that I do and we’re going to have,” she said. “It’s a work in progress.”
