Very disapointed in the Jewish Museam in Philly's good offerings:(

Philadelphia DOES have decent Kosher food, but for some stupid reason the JEWISH Museam does not feel the need to serve much:(
My husband and I went yesterday to see a particular exibit- which was super important to me to see_ the Ezra Jack Keats exibit which closed yesterday. One of his books was a childhood favorate and I HAD to see the show. The show was good ad mostly informative save the anoying docent who walked around spouting out stuff to anyone who was near her:( The screaming child was less irritating.
Our schedule for the day was tight so I had decided beofre going that we'd grab lunch in ther cafe. I am really glad we ill et "out" as the cfe was super disapointing for the Kosher consumer. They offer both Kosher and no kosher pre packaged foods. On the postive side- they did pick to use providers from GOOD places in Philly_ the non Kosher foods had a sticker on from Di Brunos (NOT Kosher) and from whzt I understand they are a GOOD place, The Kosher foods came fom a fav place of mine- YUM and a very reliable hecture so I belive most people would be happy eatting these sandwhiches
Is it really too much to ask for a JEWISH institution to have KOSHER food other than some prepackeaged sandwhiches that may have been made on Friday or even before?.
My suggestion is if you plan to go to the museam- which is just OK IMO- plan to have lunch else where if you want Kosher. It felt to me that the Kosher food was more of a last minute guesture to be kind to the tourists:(
