The Daily Planet Cafe in downtown Raleigh prides itself on fresh and local. Fresh produce and products from N.C. farmers and purveyors, coffee from Larry's Beans in Raleigh and beer and wine from across our great state. They are a locally owned N.C. restaurant in a museum—serving breakfast, lunch and small plates made up of the freshest, local ingredients. The Daily Planet Cafe is open seven days a week, so pick your day, visit the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and have a delicious meal! In addition to great food and drink, they also offer science cafes and other special events throughout the year in conjunction with the museum.
