Welcome To The Musical Offering Café – Bistro

Meriel.Photography.DessertEnjoy an excellent cup of our freshly brewed coffee and a pastry in the morning, a delicious lunchtime meal, an afternoon cup of tea, casual evening fare or fine dining before a Cal-Performances event at The Musical Offering.

Our Daytime Menu is a perfect collection of house-made soups, salads and sandwiches, daily specials, and beverages. 

Our resident string quartet, The Town Quartet, joins us most Sundays from 1-3:00pm, to accompany your lunch or afternoon tea with live music. To confirm the quartet will be playing, please call at 849-0211.

We are located just steps away from two of Berkeley’s major performing venues: Zellerbach Auditorium on the UC Campus, and First Congregational Church. We offer pre-performance fine dining on most evenings when there is an event at Zellerbach Auditorium or First Congregational Church.  Please check the calendar for dates, times and our Pre-Theater Dinner Menu by the truly phenomenal Chef Erick Balvazq.
