Though this cafe (fka quay coffee) is technically inside a museum it is a very accessible destination with a free parking lot just to the north. It operates hours independently of the museum itself and has energetic, knowledgeable staff, with as much class and pop as anything you'll find in the museum.

This place is amazing I have been here for a school field trip for art class as well as I had my son birthday party here. I feel like its impossible to get through this place in one day it's more so a two day event especially if you are really interested in art. Ther are so!!! Many different pieces to view. I like the quite laid back atmosphere which this does present. I feel like I still haven't seen everything yet and I visited the Nelson Atkinson museum three separate full review
Today was my first time visiting Quay, I had no idea it was there! When my friend said we were getting coffee at the Nelson Atkins, I assumed your typical little one stop coffee bar inside the museum. I was so wrong. The while aesthetic of the inside is very warm and cozy, and it's such a simple concept! The menu is very short and to the point, they have a small display case built into the counter fir pastries, and they make their own syrups for their lattes. What's full review
