Nature Café and Eating Areas

Bathed in natural light, surrounded by an imagery of natural elements, our Nature Café offers visitors a unique experience.

Located on the main level, the Nature Café is accessible to all. In summer, it is extended outdoors on the PCL Plaza, an urban oasis.


Café Nature serves delicious meals made from the freshest organic and seasonal ingredients. Choose from our soups, salads, sandwiches, pasta and freshly baked goods.

Our in-house chef creates daily specials to tantalize your taste buds and your imagination.

Child-friendly meals are available.

Café Nature serves excellent Starbucks coffee.

Beer and wine are available after 11 am.

We do not sell bottled water. We encourage visitors to use the many water fountains located throughout the building.
