Take in the Gallery’s soaring façade at the Street Café or complement a visit to a major exhibition with lunch in the Dining Room.
Located by the main entry, the Street Café serves fresh seasonal salads and sandwiches, sweet and savoury snacks and coffee from ONA – one of Canberra’s best speciality roasters.
With informal counter service and takeaway options, grab a table beneath the eucalypts or take your meal in the Gallery’s gardens.
Open Monday to Friday 8am – 4pm, and Saturday and Sunday 9.30am – 4pm.
Overlooking the Lakeside Sculpture Garden, the Gallery's Dining Room is transformed for each major exhibition with new dining experiences inspired by art and artists.
