Nestled in the woods, our beautiful conservatory-style room offers a peaceful setting and memorable cuisine. The Café boasts a high-quality luncheon menu, complete with some standards and many imaginative combinations, which will reward your palate. Our menu will always surprise you with daily additions and a constant rotation of spectacular desserts. We offer a full coffee and espresso bar to satisfy your coffee requests. The pleasure is ours to serve you and your enjoyment is our top priority.

delectible dessert from the Filoli CafeOne of the delectable gourmet desserts at the Café.

From our Pantry: Our menu 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!
