Those looking for light bite to start the day should check out the Thronson Café in the Delaware Museum of Art. The café and its terrace both overlook the Copeland Sculpture Garden. Assorted coffees, muffins, bagels, juices and the popular fruit parfait provide the perfect art beak in a busy day.

The Thronson Café is open Wednesday though Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and Sunday noon to 3:00 p.m.

The Delaware Art Museum’s collections are predominantly drawn from late 19th and early 20th century American illustration, as well as works from the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. The basis of the museum’s collections is the works of Howard Pyle and his pupils, N.C. Wyeth, Frank Schoonover, and Stanley Arthurs. Starting in 1961 Helen Farr Sloan, the wife of artist John French Sloan, began donations that eventually totaled 5,000 objects.

Since the 1970s the museum has added works by modern artists, such as Jacob Lawrence, Louise Nevelson, Robert Motherwell, George Segal and Jim Dine.
