In light of the pandemic that is sweeping through our world, our Café is adapting to be more socially responsible in finding ways to best serve you, our valued community, and our amazing team! Chef’s Garden, our Café’s catering team, is taking even more precautions to ensure we are working to the highest levels of health and safety standard. Chef’s Garden’s Meal Delivery Program offers socially responsible dining options with ready to eat meals for your family dinners. View the full delivery menu through the link below. As always, and now more than ever, we are beyond grateful for your support. Learn more about our partnership with Feeding Northeast Florida here.




This virtual cooking class was born out of the understanding that at this time it’s essential that we keep our social distance while staying emotionally connected. Options for meal kits as well as virtual visits are available.


The Cummer Café enhances the Museum experience for all guests by serving light lunch, quick bites, and locally-roasted coffee and espresso-based beverages. The menu features fresh, light fare with daily specials. Homemade soups, wonderful salads, and great sandwiches are just a sample of what is served. Food and refreshments can be enjoyed in the Café or the Museum’s historic Gardens. A 10% discount is extended to all Museum Members. The Cummer Café opens with the Museum and closes one hour prior to Museum closing hours.
