The Art of Eating Local

Oscar’s proudly serves a delicious seasonal lunch menu carefully created with fresh local ingredients. As the cafe at the Birmingham Museum of Art, we believe a meal should be a refreshing experience in a comfortable atmosphere surrounded by the beauty of art and nature.

Our café is committed to locally sourced ingredients, drawing on the produce of Jones Valley Urban Farm, just a few blocks away, as well as many other nearby vendors.

Executive Chef Lorrin Rames was trained by some of the best chefs in America. The upscale, fresh and local food we prepare nicely complements a light-filled open dining room offering a splendid view of trees and the award-winning Red Mountain Garden Club Memorial Garden.

Visitors may enjoy our outstanding menu Tuesday through Friday for lunch, and may enjoy our musical brunch on select Sundays. Please check the Museum calendar for dates and details.

More than just a cafe at a Museum, Oscar’s is truly a destination in itself. We invite you to come and see. For reservations, please call 205.328.7850.
