This place is a favorite and is worthy of its spot at the famous CIA. They serve breakfast and lunch and is open weekdays, and the food is superb, elegant but unpretentious. You get on line, place your order, pay and then a server brings your food. Be sure to try one of the fabulous desserts and if you love... More

No reservations needed and they serve a delicious lunch. Waitstaff is passionate about the food service industry, being student attending the CIA. Did I mention the delicious bakery items? Try the scones! Yummmm!

Disappointing for the inferred hype; perhaps I gave the CIA too much credit. Tho' we returned three times in three days (good prices for breakfast and lunch nosh) nothing was better than ok... except the soups - leek one day and split pea another. They both tasted like salty nothing... from a mix. Decent bisquits, breads, salads. Beautiful bakery products... More

I have eaten at the Apple Pie Bakery twice within the last month. The first time I ordered the Mac and Cheese. The second visit was the quiche and green salad! I love their vinaigrette. The baked goods are delish! Always my place to eat in Hyde Park.

I would say the praise for the food at this restaurant is over rated. The desserts were by far the best part of our meal. Their fries were very tasty but everything else was average. It was more interesting to walk around the building and see the action in the kitchens and visit the store. Be sure to walk around... More

We came here for a late lunch, about 3 p.m. and unfortunately they were out of my original choice. Since we had been in line with some students at the school, they recommended the macaroni and cheese as a substitute, which was actually pretty good. Not too heavy. While we didn't have any of the deserts they looked fabulous.

Salads, Sandwiches and pastries from the top of the cream chefs. Mouth watery display, delicious treats and variety to choose from. You line up like at Starbucks but quick service, after you pick from a variety of exquisite choices and pay for, you sit down on a well appointed location and shortly after you are served by student staff, with...

One of several restaurants at the CIA on campus, with the students engaged in the cooking and serving of such lovely food and drinks. This school is another gem in the Hyde Park area, almost hidden among the run down and abandoned buildings and old homes left in the city, or town as it was. Granted, this area has seen... More
