Take time out during your visit to MOTAT and refuel at our café. Delicious coffee, meals, and child-friendly snacks are on offer daily.

Located lakeside in the picturesque Cropper House at MOTAT Great North Road, Steamed is an indoor/outdoor venue managed by Montana Food and Events.

If it's coffee you are after, Steamed has you covered. They offer a variety of hot and cold drinks as well as ice creams and ice blocks - the perfect treat! The café even has a dedicated cabinet that caters for a range of dietaries, including gluten-free and vegan options. An a la carte menu is also offered on weekends.

Steamed is accessible to all visitors to the museum upon admission.
