Norton Simon Cafe Restaurant Review

: This order-at-the-counter, plastic-utensil café would be unremarkable but for its idyllic location overlooking a lily pond in the midst of a sculpture garden at Pasadena’s Norton Simon Museum. You don’t have to pay admission to the museum to linger at this tranquil, umbrella-shaded café. The menu is not terribly sophisticated: quesadillas, hummus and chips, a turkey sandwich and a roast beef wrap with caramelized onions and blue cheese. But imposing sculptures by Henry Moore, Jacques Lipchitz and Aristide Maillol elevate the experience.
