Fresh & Local
The Daily Planet Cafe, located in the new Nature Research Center of the NC Museum of Natural Sciences, features breakfast entrees and pastries, a full coffee bar, sandwiches, seasonal salads, small plate entrees, 8 North Carolina beers on tap, and Childress NC wines on draft — a first for the area. Speaking of North Carolina, it wouldn't be politically correct to not offer local products from farmers and growers within our great state. After all, we are in a North Carolina museum. So, our menu is almost exclusively built on products born and bred in the Tarheel state.
In addition to great food and drink, The Daily Planet Cafe offers science cafes and other special events throughout the year in conjunction with the museum.
