Now open: Bent Creek Bistro!
Open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Tuesday through Sunday.
The Bistro offers casual counter-service style ordering with indoor and outdoor seating surrounded by the Arboretum’s gorgeous setting.
Located at the “top” of the campus, at the Education Center, our main goal is to enhance your experience at the NC Arboretum!
We hand-prepare our food to order, and offer a nice variety of sandwiches, salads and even hand-made quiche, as well as seasonal specials and great variety of wines and local beers, along with locally roasted coffee and hot teas.
Local ingredients are included as often as possible, and we like to change up our menu to suit the seasons. Our staff are friendly and helpful and are more than willing to help suggest menu items to meet most dietary requirements.
With indoor and outdoor seating, including a covered patio and tables in the shade or sun, our little bistro gives you lots of options to pick the perfect place to enjoy our fare, no matter the weather. So, before you stroll the gardens, or after a nice long hike, come and see us for some hearty handmade fare or a delicious snack.
We hope to see you during your visit to the North Carolina Arboretum!
