Met Opera - Do they serve cake?

I heard a rumor that when you go to a gala at the Met, they serve white cake for guests. Is this true, or is it just a rumor?

If it is true, is the cake free? What kind of cake is it?

  1. miss bennet,
    Ive never seen cake offered, and Im sure even if it was it wouldnt free ! They do offer sandwiches, and champagne at intermission..Im going next week so if theres cake Ill let you know :)

    1. The ONLY thing that's free at the MetOpera is the little paper cups for the free water at the water fountains! You can buy brownies and little sandwiches and coffee at the various areas near the bars.

      1. Thanks! It seemed a bit unlikely!

        1. do you mean a gala or intermission? at a gala there is a dinner set (with dessert) that is "free" if you buy the gala tickets.
