Seaglass Restaurant is a casual, waterside venue with stunning views located at the east end of the museum. Chef Loretta Keller creates family-friendly, multicultural, locally sourced menus that showcase small producers.
Seaglass also offers natural soft drinks, organic and fair trade coffees and teas, and sparkling house-made drinking-vinegar beverages. It also features a bar that showcases artisanal distillers, many organic, and a thoughtfully curated wine and beer list. The bar itself incorporates Icy Bodies, an exhibit by Exploratorium Senior Artist Shawn Lani, into its design.
The Seismic Joint Café is a casual take-out spot located near the museum's entrance, just off the Embarcadero. It features family-friendly fare plus a coffee bar, baked goods, natural sodas, and more. There are spots to sit—indoors and out—just outside the café.
Menus vary depending on the day and time. Visa, Discover, MasterCard, and American Express are accepted.
