The seismic joint café

The seismic joint café is a casual take-out spot located near the museum's entrance, just off the Embarcadero. Here you can pick up hot dishes, such as soup, as well as muffins and other baked goods, sandwiches, a daily salad, natural sodas, and other beverages. The café also features a full coffee bar, where you can buy cappuccinos and other drinks. There are tables and spots to sit just outside the café.
