About The Daily Planet Cafe
At The Daily Planet Cafe in downtown Raleigh, NC, we pride ourselves on fresh and local. Fresh produce and products from North Carolina farmers and purveyors, coffee from Larry’s Coffee in Raleigh, and beer and wine from across our great state. We’re a locally owned North Carolina restaurant in a North Carolina museum—serving breakfast, lunch and small plates made up of the freshest, local ingredients. Whether you’re visiting the museum, work and/or live downtown, or are a local who loves local as much as we do, come visit us at the The Daily Planet Cafe. We’re open seven days a week, so pick your day, visit the NC Museum of Natural Sciences and have a delicious meal with us!
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.
