These two museums don’t just have
wonderful art — they also both have fantastic cafés. I recently
undertook a mission to dine at both: CAM’s Terrace Café and the Lindner
Family Café at the Taft Museum. I decided that I wouldn’t just eat at
the cafés — I would also see what treasures the museums had to offer.
to remind me, in retrospect, that we didn’t know how good we had it in the early 1990s. The Soviet Union and the Berlin Wall had crumbled, leaving post-Cold War America without a real international threat; terror ism was a vague concept involving bad things that happened somewhere else.
