“Food was quite reasonable”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Before we started our tour we decided to grab a bite to eat. We purchased, two plates of pasta, chicken dish and a tofu stir fry. Everything was quite tasty and we found it quite reasonable. The only thing was there wasn't much tough but that could be because there wasn't a lot in the scoop that was handed out. Overall very good.

“A Perfect Break”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

We spent two hours touring the excellent exhibits and needed a break. The Glass Market Cafe was perfect for that. I had coffee that was strong, hot and exactly what I wanted. My slice of pizza was delicious. We sat facing the outdoor seating watching the rain fall. The cafe has something for everyone. The employees are friendly and efficient.

“Food to get you through the afternoon”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

While visiting the Corning Glass Museum, we found the Glass Market Cafe. There was a lot of seating, and nice seating outside as well. The food seemed to cater to the Aisian palate. A lot of noodle choices and chinese food. They made chicken breast salads fresh while you waited and the eggplant panninni I had was cold even though it just came out of the oven. The rates are reasonable and if you're a museum member, you save 15%.

“More than a museum cafe”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Museum cafeterias are usually a little blah. Not this one! With many nice selections- 3 different sandwiches, 2-3 soups, 3-4 salads, several pizzas, and about 5 entrée type items to choose from there was something for everyone. I've eaten there 4 times and have always been pleased with the selection and cost. The staff is very friendly and helpful too!

“Mediocre Food Inside Great Museum”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

This cafe is the only option inside the Corning Glass Museum and is similar to a shopping mall food court. We had soup and sandwiches, which were just OK. It would be nice if they offered a real dining option.
