Blanton Café

Beginning Friday, March 13, the Blanton Museum of Art at The University of Texas in Austin is temporarily closed and will reopen, if the situation allows, on Tuesday, May 5. This includes the galleries of the Michener Building, “Austin” by Ellsworth Kelly, and the Blanton Café and Museum Shop.

We will post updates on our website and via social media when we have news to share. You can find University of Texas COVID-19 updates and guidance here.

We look forward to seeing you when we reopen.

The Blanton Café offers visitors a relaxing spot in which to enjoy a variety of sandwiches, gourmet flat bread pizzas, salads, signature desserts, and of course, coffee drinks. A limited menu is served on the weekends and also during the holiday season.

Pre-order bagged lunches for groups of 10 or more (view available menu).

Bagged lunch orders must be placed by phone or email and pre-paid 72 hours in advance of scheduled visit. Bagged lunches may be eaten on the museum’s covered loggia or on the outdoor plaza (due to limited seating inside the café). To order bagged lunches, please call 512.232.9209 or 512.788.7235.
