The Hershey Story today announced a new café opening in the museum. Café aMusée at The Hershey Story, “an American bistro with a French twist,” will open on Monday, Feb. 15, 2021, replacing The Pantry Café at The Hershey Story.
The new café offers both unique and traditional culinary items for breakfast and lunch. Among the breakfast selections are a warm cinnamon roll skillet, a croiwaffle served with chocolate or chocolate hazelnut spread and croque monsieur. Lunch options include Wagyu beef burgers, grilled salmon sandwiches and tahini cauliflower bowls. Along with sandwich and salad offerings, the menu also features steak frites, macaroni au gratin and Southern fried chicken. Staple items include daily specials and homemade soups, in addition to fresh-baked pastries and breads delivered daily from Philadelphia bakeries. Online ordering will soon be available via CafeaMusee.com.
“We’re really proud to bring a locally owned business to downtown Hershey,” said Angela Megoulas, co-owner, Café aMusée at The Hershey Story. “We’ve developed a great menu that balances unique selections with more classic food items.“
With Café aMusée’s opening comes the arrival of La Colombe Coffee Roasters to the area. Café aMusée will be the first venue in the Central Pennsylvania region to serve La Colombe coffee and coffee beverages. The business has several locations in its headquarters of Philadelphia, in addition to cafés in New York City, Chicago, Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles.
“La Colombe is amazing coffee,” added Irene Gekas, co-owner, Café aMusée. “We’re fortunate that they agreed to partner with us to bring it to this area.”
Café aMusée will be serving La Colombe’s popular draft latte and its cold brew on tap. “Black and Tan,” a combination of the two draft coffee beverages, will also be a featured beverage, along with a full assortment of coffee drinks and teas.
For the chocolate lover, Café aMusée’s desserts include a chocolate bomb served with a cup of steamed milk for hot chocolate. Syringes filled with warm milk chocolate are also being sold separately or in conjunction with whipped cream and strawberries for topping the café’s dessert pizza.
Café aMusée is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, with extended summer hours. The café is open to the general public; guests are not required to purchase admission to the museum to dine in the café.
