From the Pantry: A menu that consists of Filoli fresh seasonal salads, delicious soups and a selection of innovative Paninis, both vegetarian and meat–based. We also offer a children’s menu little ones will enjoy.

In addition to the house–made items, we offer a self–service array of choices from standard favorite sandwiches and fresh side salads, sweets, a variety of snacks and grab ‘n’ go items. We think the Café at Filoli offers the best of both worlds: self–service fare and Filoli fresh specialties.

Indoor and outdoor seating with a view of the Friends’ Garden is one of our special features. Come in, visit with us and enjoy!
