The Flagler Museum's Café des Beaux-Arts offers seasonal refreshment options to visitors seeking a culinary experience, from its signature tea service in the Flagler Kenan Pavilion to a new a la carte option called PICNIC. Find details below on our Gilded Age-inspired food and beverage concepts which are available during select general admission hours.
PICNIC by the Café des Beaux-Arts - Now Open!
Open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday
11:30 am to 3 pm
Grab-and-go fare • Cold beverages
Seating available outside in the Cocoanut Grove
Located in the West Room at Whitehall, PICNIC's menu of light bites, sweet treats, and ice-cold beverages includes the same black tea served at our Gilded Age-style Tea Service by the Café des Beaux-Arts, a Harney & Sons blend made especially for the Flagler Museum. Lemonade is also on the menu with PICNIC's cold and slightly sweet version of the black tea, both served in glass bottles. Hungry guests might choose the Whitehall Turkey Sandwich topped with brie and cranberry sauce and served on a crusty baguette. Sides include a red grape cluster and a creamy potato salad to create a satisfying mid-day meal. The Cheese Platter with its assortment of cured meat, fruit, honey, and artisan crackers or the Crudité tray of fresh veggies with a creamy dip are excellent choices for those who wish to share a nosh. Those with a sweet tooth may choose from lavender cookies, which are inspired by Victorian-era tea cakes, or a decadent cupcake. (Menu is subject to change. Prices range from $3.75 to $16.50.)
As food and beverage are not permitted inside Museum buildings, crisp white paperboard PICNIC boxes will be given to each guest to carry their fare outside to the Cocoanut Grove, where tables and chairs offer respite in the shade of the palm trees. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Unlike the tea service, PICNIC's grab-and-go fare is offered for purchase a la carte; reservations or pre-orders are not required. The iced tea, lemonade, and cookies as well as the savory Crudité dip mix will be available for purchase in the Museum Store during all general admission hours.

Thanks to all our guests who joined us in the Café during the 2019-2020 season. The Café's Gilded Age-style Tea Service featured an array of delicacies and refreshments reminiscent of the elegance of entertaining at the turn of the 20th century. Located in the Flagler Kenan Pavilion, guests of the Café enjoyed spectacular panoramic views of Lake Worth and the West Palm Beach skyline.
