Disney style meals and comparable prices

The food is at best average. Mostly, burgers and fried chicken. There are healthy choices such as veggie burgers and salads but this is very much the "Disney" style restaurants for lunch. Over priced for average food. Still, I was happy with my experience at Orbit Cafe and I would return.

This restaurant is in the Space Center, and is the only place to get a meal. It's pricey, but the food is tasty. I ordered a platter and a drink, then found out that the platter included a drink, so I ended up with two!

The decor and atmosphere is great. The food is mediocre. The potential to have great is there but it is there when you are in a crunch for time and you would rather not eat from a vending machine or burned out on granola/energy bars. I would think that they should aim for restaurant style burgers and fries...if its money...market... More

Food was good, price was ok for a Florida attraction, served reasonably quickly. Portion size was good and free refills on the sodas which is a plus for most Florida attractions.

I had a salad and the ingredients were fresh. The price is what to expect at an amusement park. Service was good.

We decided to get a bite to eat while visiting the Kennedy Space Center. We ate at the Orbit Café. It is mediocre cafeteria food. We found it overpriced. The macaroni and cheese was bland and moderately warm. the burgers were small and not very good. Unless you are starving, pass on this venue and try a local restaurant in... More

We got the black bean burgers, very dry and not much flavor. The fries weren't much better. The place was clean though.

We wanted food fast and got it fast - the most gorgeous pepperoni pizza ever. You programme your order in, pay for it on the same machine which gives you your number and station to pick the food up. All very slick and professional. Would highly recommend.

Had the burger but there is a good range of food on offer and the cookies are excellent. It does get very busy but staff are on hand to ease people through to the order point, it was all very slick and we enjoyed it.

Quick service, healthy options, and a unique style of ordering that helps keep the process efficient and fast in the setting of often large crowds. Would recommend for lunch!
