MOCAD Café is a quiet and casual space in the heart of the museum, where visitors can take a moment to reflect on the current exhibition or enjoy a coffee. The space itself, particularly representative of the building's raw and restrained design, is the site of MOCAD’s public programming and educational activities, including films, panel discussions, workshops and musical performances. MOCAD Café typically remains open during these events, although its services may be limited or expanded depending on the nature of each particular event.
While the beverage menu varies by season, it always includes a selection of teas and coffees. Coffees are curated by the café staff and represent nearby microroasters, which have included Anthology Coffee (Detroit), Passion House Coffee Roasters Extraordinaire (Chicago) and HalfWit Coffee Roasters (Chicago). In addition, the café periodically hosts pop-up kitchens, which serve brunch on Sundays and lunch on Wednesdays. The monthly pop-up schedule can be found below, and frequent updates are posted on the MOCAD Café's Facebook page.
Sundays 11AM to 2PM
Every Sunday, MOCAD opens its café to the ephemeral pop-up kitchens of Detroit. Regular guests include Dr. Sushi, the collaborating Gypsy Kitchen and Kung Food, Stuffed, Cook Lola Cook, and Sunflower Mama.
