Having eaten here before, we knew what to expect. We were not disappointed. The students are always friendly and professional. The food is second to none.

Beautifully seting at the Culinary institute in Hyde Park during the height of the Fall season. You may have to stand in line but it moves quickly. Feast your eyes on the wonderful desserts after your meal.

My husband and I ate there just before closing. We both ordered sandwiches which were very good. We were sorry that we couldn't have come earlier and the soup was not available. We will have to visit again earlier!

Brought 3 elderly physically challenged friends for lunch. I was concerned that we would have to walk far from the parking garage to the building where the cafe was but found it was fairly easy, with an elevator and ramps. 3 of us had the crab cake (note singular) with frisee lettuce (far too much and very unruly). It would... More

This was our second visit to the Apple Pie Bakery at the CIA. On this visit my husband had the chili with roll and chocolate layer cake. The chili was fabulous! The chocolate layer cake was delicious and beautifully presented. I had the carnitas with black bean and corn salad ( more like a garnish but tasty) the thin handmade... More

The Apple Pie Cafe is always a treat to go to. The students are always creating new pastry masterpieces which are scrumptious! They do everything from cooking & baking to running the register, all the way down to serving & cleaning up. The cafe is great for lunch or just tea time.

If you are only getting a dessert to go, make sure you take a number. The line was a long one as we waited to check out all the pastries available for sale. Unfortunately for me, I had my eye on a coconut pumpkin donut, but by the time I placed my order, the last one had been snatched up... More

The Apple Pie Bakery is a casual restaurant at the Culinary Institute open for breakfast and lunch. You go to the counter to order and your food is brought to you. Our hostess Crystal, a CIA student due to graduate in about 3 weeks, was extremely charming and also helpful in explaining the system and talking about what was really... More
