Seedlings is a farm to table restaurant at to The Children’s Museum of The Upstate featuring healthy, delicious, and locally sourced food items for children and families.

Seedlings works with local farmers to obtain over 80 percent of the restaurant’s ingredients, offering healthy menu items in a family-friendly atmosphere. Our menu is made up of popular items that kids love, and features organic foods, house-made sauces, local fruits and vegetables, and free-range meats. Guests can go beyond a typical eating experience to explore our hydroponics garden, see our chicken egg incubator, or enjoy our interactive events and seasonal tastings throughout the year!
