I was thankful to find this cafe inside The Tech so I could grab a cup of coffee on the fly. The staff and prices were what one would expect for such a convenient service.

We weren't going to eat here, because we thought the prices would be ridiculous. Instead, we found them to be quite reasonable for the convenience for someone who is touring the museum anyway. You can easily stay at the museum for six hours, so why not take a break and get a bite? There was a good chicken salad and... More

We ate here the day of our visit and found food that our picky granddaughter could eat and also some things we liked. Nothing special but it was in the TECH and we were able to get back to the museum quickly. We chose to eat early at about 11:45 which was a good thing as the serving line and... More

nothing spectacular here, but totally serviceable. Museum restaurants are often overpriced fast food, but this is solid. I've been known to come here when doing business in the neighborhood. It's fast, cheap and relatively healthy. Way better than you might expect.

If your visiting the musuem you may a well stay for lunch. The prices I thought were a little high but for one living in California it was reasonable. The food is good. They try sooo hard to make your lunch to your taste. It is busy at noon. I recommend going at 1:30. The gift stor is next to... More

I tried cake and coffee here. It was average. However, the sitting place was comfortable. Hope they would add more varieties when I visit next time there.

I had a" gluten free" hamburger served on lettuce, my hubby a cranberry citrus salad and our friends enjoyed a chicken salad sandwich....all good and well prepared. We thought their prices were quite reasonable too. Service was fast and friendly.

When one goes tot he museum they do not have to leave to get a nourishing lunch. The food is fresh and the variety is big enough to meet everyone's needs. The price is good too. If you are a member of the museum you get a discount as well.

We had a nice lunch here when we spent a day at the Tech museum. The cafeteria was reasonably priced for an attraction at a museum. There was a nice variety for all tastes. It is an excellent place to take a break when visiting the museum.

Cafe Primavera is a good place to take a break from perusing the activities at the Museum. The Cafe used to be located in Willow Glen and we who live in this area were sad to see it go. But, it's found a great home at the Tech Museum and is definitely a nice place to grab a bite or... More
