average fare for a museum...salads, sandwiches, coffee. Nothing exciting or notable. Very crowded but there is very nice seating outdoors in the gardens. Don't forget to get a picture with the Dali Moustache!

As members, my wife and I visit frequently. The setting is beautiful, both indoors and outdoors. The food offerings are sophisticated, tasty, and reasonably priced.

A small café which is related to a few others in town by this chef. Try the unusual offerings or just a great muffin and coffee. Worth the expense for great food (far above the usual museum fare) and a chance to enjoy the building.

We finished our morning visit at the Dali Museum and wanted to relax and explore outside. So we bought some food to tide us over. One person bought a pear/cheese/fig dish and a glass of wine, and two of us shared a sandwich. The food was attractive, on the expensive side, but definitely the right choice for us! We took...

A recent visit to The Dali Museum in St. Petersburg yielded yet another good snacking delight. We were there to see the exhibit on food. Luckily, we decided to have a bite beforehand so as not to interrupt our tour. The Vegetariano Wrap was chosen. It was a nice size that two of us shared it along with our beverages... More

The day we were there the special was butternut squash soup and grilled cheese sandwich. The soup was delicious with pumpkin seed sprinkled on the top. The sandwich was grilled with homemade sourdough bread. Very tasty.

This is the cafe at the Dali Museum. It serves Spanish food. The food is very good; the portions are small; the prices are high. If Cafe Gala were not connected to the museum, I think I'd have more of an issue with the prices. However, food concessions at attractions tend to be expensive. If you were to really be... More

After visiting the museum we decided to stop in Cafe Gala for some refreshment. Menu reflects Dali's home country Spain with the menu items. Tapas, Spanish appetizers, wine and much more. Interesting!

We had lunch at this cafe during our visit. The sandwich we ordered, serrano ham and manchego cheese, was extremely salty for my taste. The price was too high for the portion, and if you add a drink to it, it will make a very expensive lunch.
