The mac-n-cheese is a favorite-- it's made with both gruyere and parmesan cheese-- so the cheese flavor is strong but delicious! And try it paired with the apple cider granita when it's in season. It's the perfect autumn lunch.

We stopped for a late lunch and could hardly wait for the food to be delivered to our table. It was busy even at 1:30PM, but well worth the wait in line. The food arrived pretty quickly. The students on the floor and behind the counter are very friendly and keep a sharp eye out for any guests' needs. The truffle sandwich was delicious, as was the turkey. All the pastries looked fantastic, but we only had room for the coconut panacotta for dessert.
It's a bit noisy, but worth a visit.
Check out the bookstore or take the tour afterwards.

The CIA trains the world's greatest chefs, so to enjoy a meal prepared and served by the students- it's a very pleasurable experience! Definitely have the Pain Au Chocolat- chocolate croissant!!!!

The small eat-in bakery is a great place to have lunch. You will get lovely pastries, soups, dishes that will delight. Everyone eats there....the chefs, culinary professors, students and folks from off campus because it is great, unusual lunch food with pastries/desserts. Be mindful of the times and get there before the peak lunch hour as it gets really crowded.
