Hours & Offerings

Sprout opened in 2012 as a collaboration between the Museum of Life and Science and Farmer’s Table Restaurant Group. In keeping with the Farmer’s Table mission, Sprout Café uses local, seasonal ingredients whenever possible in their many breakfast, lunch, and snack options. With seating available both indoors and on the seasonal covered patio, you’re invited to pull up a chair, relax, and savor all Sprout has to offer.
