Where to eat at Leopold Museum

There is only one cafe named “Cafe Leopold” located on level 2 of the Leopold Museum.

Café Leopold serves a distinct blend of Asian and other International cuisines, supplemented by regional classics.

The open-air café beside the MQ main square’s water basin welcomes visitors to linger during the summer.

The cafe runs throughout the week from 10 am to 12 pm.
