Entrees from $3-$8.50, drinks & snacks under $3.  The StarDate Café does not serve alcoholic beverages, and since the Observatory is a UT campus, alcoholic beverages are not allowed on the property.

The Café is seeking hourly staff to help us with our busy time of the year. Interested? Call 432-426-3644 to enquire.

Those planning to grab a bite before the Star Parties take note .. Star Party crowds average between 300 and 400 people during the summer and between 200-300 throughout much of the rest of the year. Please plan to give yourself at least an hour to order and enjoy your meal before your program.
