The restaurant is currently closed temporarily for remodeling.
The Banyan Café
The Banyan Café will close at 3pm on Monday, June 29 and will re-open on Wednesday July 1.
The Banyan Café serves up lighter fare that’s ideal for children or visitors looking for a small repast as they search the Ringling. Set beside one of the estate’s most majestic Banyans and across from the original Circus Museum, the Banyan offers visitors a place to relax with a cold drink or coffee and anything from hot dogs and hamburgers to salads and fruit cups at tables under its portico or at picnic tables in the warm Florida sunshine.
The Museum Café
Order a Starbucks brewed coffee drink or choose from a selection of Tazo’s Teas, blog about your visit or choose a book from the bookshelves – they’re for buying or browsing – get comfortable in an easy chair or at a table and enjoy a few minutes all to yourself in the Museum Café, upstairs in the Visitor’s Pavilion above the Museum Store.
Picnics at The Ringling
You are welcome to enjoy a leisurely picnic in the Bayfront Gardens. Picnic tables are located in the Dwarf Garden and adjacent to Mable's Rose Garden.
