Mili Kàpi Cafe

The Mili Kàpi Cafe offers hot and cold beverages and light casual fare—sandwiches, salads, and sweets—highlighting ingredients indigenous to the Americas. The cafe is located on the Second Floor, on the same level as the Museum Store. Mili Kàpi means “give me some coffee” in the Native language of the Lenape people, the original inhabitants of New York City.
