Binders Cafe - a classroom... a cafe...

Everything we do is for the sole purpose of preparing our students to meet the demands of the food service industry. We practice 'kitchen rigor' by preparing EVERYTHING here... from homemade breads, dressings, sauces, soups... to the hand-cut french fries, the students do it all. If you have a pleasant experience, feel free to recognize the effort of the students with a token of your appreciation. If we did not do it right, please let our student-manager know! This is a learning environment, so please be aware that the menu is subject to change. We appreciate your understanding!

We now have our AM/PM bars available for sale! Protein loaded, naturally-sweetened and quite tasty... the AM bars, available during The Beanery (7-7:30am) are full of dried fruit and toasted oats. The PM bars, available during and after lunch are packed full of natural goodness and spiked with chocolate and coffee. All that goodness for $1!
