“…the best dinner of the entire tour.” – Dave Brubeck

In addition to each night’s featured dinner special, always available menu favorites include meat chili, vegetarian chili, salad, cornbread, chips and salsa, and a variety of deliciously, decadent desserts, all prepared, in-house, by Chef Cheryl Simons and her dedicated Cafe Kuumbwa crew.
