Kennedy Space Center Dining
Choose from a full-service restaurant or grab a bite at one of the self-service restaurants and specialty food locations. You can even reserve your place at the daily Lunch With an Astronaut briefing, which includes a delicious lunch, a briefing and Q&A with a NASA astronaut.
While you won’t have to exist on the powdered drinks and squeeze-tube dinners that were once standard fare for astronauts, neither can you expect a gourmet dining experience at KSC Visitor Complex.
One of the management’s best inspirations has been to dispatch dozens of freestanding food carts to various points in the Visitor Complex. They offer everything from ice cream snacks to hot dogs. Given the difficulty of squeezing everything into a one-day visit to the Center, it makes a lot of sense to eat on the run from these carts and save the big sit-down meal for later in the evening.
After a $3.5 million upgrade, Orbit Cafeteria and Mila's have become Orbit Café. Featuring the same great menu, but with more space, this Kennedy Space Center dining option offers something for everyone.
