We stopped after our museum tour for a short break. We got vanilla lattes, which were delightful and delicious! They reminded us of European varieties — smooth and richly flavored. Although we didn’t eat lunch, the menu looked great (a charcuterie board on display looked yummy, as did the tiramisu).

We were there for lunch after visiting the coastal area around Saint Petersburg. Although the cafe has service, you need to order the food at the counter before they take them out to your table. There are indoor and outdoor seatings with small table space. A large group like us do have trouble fitting all into one table.

The spanish beef carpaccio and salmon carpaccio were my favorite. They presented the dishes very with well balanced taste. We also liked the wraps and the soup. The least favorite was the ensalada pear & cabrales as it was pretty bland.

If you cannot walk into this cafe inside the Dali museum from the outside streets, there is a $10 parking charge using the museum parking lot.

I enjoy lunch in a setting surrounded by art, but Cafe Gala was special and I’ll treasure the experience. We ordered salads that were artisan crafted and were very large portions. We sat inside of the huge glass atrium that marks the architecture of the Dali Museum. Reasonably priced, if I were a local I would go often. You do not have to have a ticket to have lunch inside or on the outside patio surrounded by sculptures and gardens. This is a must do must see. Kudos to the friendly staff.

This cafe is reasonably priced, but the portions are quite small. We had Sunday brunch here last weekend (busy at noon) with friends renting in St. Pete for the month. You order in line inside and a server brings the food and drinks to the table. We had the daily special frittata and small salad (extra), one poached egg with serrano ham/chorizo & asparagus, the beef carpaccio (quite thin), and the chicken wrap. All of the food was excellent. My friend really liked the homemade red wine sangria. I had the white albarino wine & it was good too. Visited the gift shop afterwards and it had some interesting items.

A bit pricy, but food was very good and of course it is convenient. Very nice indoor and outdoor seating.
