Our state of the art café was designed with community in mind and built to showcase a wide range of flavorful menu options all week long. Featured stations include Classics, where you can find traditional favorites such as house-made macaroni and cheese and roast beef with made-from-scratch mashed potatoes, or the Market Grill, with menu items like certified humane burgers and daily grill specials prepared to order. The Cafr offers an abundant Salad Bar with local fresh produce and toppings, as well as a Deli Station that features ‘build your own’ custom options and daily specials. Hot coffee, teas and decadent freshly baked desserts are available daily. The Hearth Stone Oven features hand-crafted pizzas, piadini and artisan flat-breads. Can’t get enough of our hand-crafted pizza? Place an order for take-out and enjoy anywhere! The fan favorite is our Herbivore station, the centerpiece of our café which is an oasis for vegetarian and vegan diners as well as the destination for nutritious and imaginative vegan and vegetarian options for everyone.

Our sustainability commitments

Food Allergies

We serve thousands of guests with food allergies and sensitivities safely in our cafés every day. Our chefs, managers, and dietitians work closely with our food-allergic guests to create reasonable solutions to help them eat what they love. If you have questions about eating for your dietary needs in our cafés, reach out to us: we’ll gladly meet with you.

Food allergies & sensitivities


Wellness also includes the health of the animals, the workers, the community, and the Earth. They’re all connected. Bon Appétit has been committed to “food service for a sustainable future” for decades, and we’ve led the food service industry in tackling many important issues, such as cage-free eggs, antibiotics in animal production, and farmworker rights.
