Brunch is great, but sometimes they forget about you

The Nasher Museum Cafe is a lovely afternoon experience especially if you're there to visit the museum or if you've been to Duke Gardens close by. Brunch is served on the weekends with an outdoor dining option available. They have theme dinners and an excellent wine list. The staff is professional and proficient. A very good choice.

After having a tour of the Museum, we went to lunch at the Cafe. The seating is easy-just find a seat and the staff is attentive to who comes in. Within a minute, menus were in hand and beverage orders were taken and delivered. The menu covers all tastes from light plates to salads and sandwiches and meals.

Love the food here, probably my favorite place to eat on Duke campus currently. Had their seafood linguine and it was fantastic. Service was also great.

Modern café with healthy options, including ones for vegetarians. Ambiance is nice; slow wait, but friendly staff and lovely food made it worth the wait.

Their lattes are amazing. Also they were able to accommodate my gluten and dairy allergies, so 10/10 for that.

Our monthly dining group of 8 (G8 is now five years old) really enjoyed our recent dinner at the Nasher Cafe. We went on a Thursday night (the only night dinner is currently being served) and, as an added bonus, those of us who arrived at the Nasher Museum early could check out the current art exhibitions without paying an entrance fee since Thursday is their "free" day. It was a nice evening weather-wise and we opted for the outdoor seating (a beautiful setting) which can be a little quieter than the indoors room as well. We had truly delightful service from Marley and it was great seeing Lydia whom we know from her Refectory Cafe days. We requested several variations from what was listed on the menu and Marley and the chef happily fulfilled our orders. We all chose very tasty and fresh dinner-sized salads (from Nasher's wonderful selection) and some of us topped them off with beautifully grilled shrimp or seared ahi tuna. Nasher Cafe also has a nice selection of desserts as well as of wine, and a small, but good, selection of craft beer -- and we partook in all. Finally, we made reservations for their Saturday brunch in a couple of weeks!
