Visitors to Strawbery Banke can bring a picnic lunch and eat outside on the museum grounds or visit the many options available, both on site and off site, for purchasing food and beverages. For a light menu of morning coffee and pastries, assorted beverages, and light meals, May 1 - Oct 31 please visit the Figtree Kitchen cafe inside of the Tyco Visitors Center.

For on-site dining, please visit Mombo located in the Dunaway building on the museum's grounds. Mombo offers creative, internationally inspired cuisine served in the heart of historic Portsmouth. For a current schedule of hours and menus for Mombo, please inquire with museum staff at the Tyco Visitors Center or click here to visit Mombo's website.

If you prefer to take an easy walk into Portsmouth’s historic downtown, you can chose from more than 50 restaurants and cafes—one sure to suit your palate and price range. Once dubbed “the restaurant capital of New England,” Portsmouth offers a seemingly endless choice of menus—gourmet and everyday, ethnic and American, leisurely and fast. While the options are too many to name, there are comprehensive lists available in the Greater Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce’s Guide to the Seacoast (including NH and southern Maine), available upon request at (603) 436-3988 or http://www.portsmouthchamber.org/.

FIRA (Favorite Independent Restaurant Association), a group dedicated to promoting the independent restaurants of the Seacoast region, publishes an online directory of local independent restaurants at www.localflavor.org.
