Knoxville, TN – The Knoxville Museum of Art announces a new casual lunch service, the Coop Café at the KMA. The Coop operates Tuesday through Friday from 11am to 2pm.

Owned and operated by Nancy Kendrick of The Coop Café on Sutherland and Creative Catering of Knoxville, the Coop Café at the KMA offers a selection of sandwiches and salads, as well as a variety of sweet treats. Coffee, tea, and cold drinks are also available. 

“Having a café at the museum is something we’ve wanted to do for a long time,” said KMA Executive Director David Butler. “Our visitors can now come and enjoy the beautifully renovated museum, enjoy permanent and temporary art exhibitions, explore the museum shop, and have a bite to eat in the Coop Café. It’s yet another reason to visit. We are thrilled to be working with Nancy on this venture.”
