The PMA Café

The PMA Café, located at the Portland Museum of Art in downtown Portland, is the perfect spot for coffee, lunch, or early-evening drinks. Our quiet, airy café offers the dynamic atmosphere of an art museum— and no admission is required to enjoy it. (Members do receive a 10% discount at the Café!)

Locally sourced food and drink

Our menu features soups and starters, hearty salads, artisanal sandwiches and wraps, grain bowls, and more! We have a kids’ menu for our younger guests. We also offer a variety of fresh baked goods and desserts, all made from scratch by our Black Tie Company Pastry Chef. If you’d like a delicious drink, look no further. We prepare elegant espresso drinks, plus nitro brew and cold brew. PMA Café features Maine beer, wine, and soft drinks.We like to have fun with food and drinks, sometimes partnering with local brewers or distillers to offer tastings or pairings. Whenever we can, we create specialty items that tie into an art exhibition or other events at the museum.

Casual and comfortable

Like the art museum itself, PMA Café is a casual and comfortable place to spend some time. Whether you’re lingering over coffee, having a business meeting, or enjoying a snack with your laptop and our free WiFi, you’ll always be welcome. And if you’re at PMA to watch a film, feel free to stop by the café on your way to the theater – food and beverages are allowed.

Private catered luncheons and meetings

If you have a large group that’s coming to tour the museum, contact PMA Café and we can customize something special for you. We’re happy to arrange a simple tea service, coffee and croissants, or a fully catered luncheon. We also offer space for small group meetings, whether for business, education, or fun.
