Mitsitam Native Foods Cafe: Great Museum Food
The National Museum of the American Indian's eatery isn't your run-of-the-mill museum cafeteria.

Best Museum Cafe

Museum cafes can be a maze of steam tables with overpriced cafeteria food. Skip the chicken tenders and head for the National Museum of the American Indian’s Mitsitam Native Foods Cafe (Fourth St. and Independence Ave., SW; 202-633-1000). The sunlit eatery offers cuisines of five Native American regions, from Pacific Northwest to Great Plains. Selections change often, but we recommend empanadas and pork pibil tamales from the South America station, fresh smoothies and juices, and Indian fry bread dipped in honey.
