ANN ARBOR, Mich - Responding to the growing popularity of museum eateries, the University of Michigan Museum of Art has joined with Michigan Dining to offer UMMA fans a new experience: the UMMA Cafe.

Scheduled to open at the beginning of June, the UMMA Cafe will offer museum-goers salads, sandwiches, pastries, bento boxes, espresso drinks, tea and the UMMA’s own signature coffee. Some of the menu items will be UMMA exclusives and will only be available at the cafe.

Special events, talks and concerts are anticipated to take place in the cafe so as to make a space where the museum and socializing can converge.

The two-year pilot project cafe has been made possible with the generosity of UMMA volunteer and advocate Paola Luptak. It is part of long-term efforts to make the museum more accessible for a variety of museum enthusiasts from local students to Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti community members.
