Food Service

Breakfast and lunch are typically served in the Chef’s Café in the Campus Center on school days when students are in attendance.

Most days, hot breakfast is served. If you’re short on time, you’ll find cereals, protein bars, fresh fruit, and yogurt, and of course several coffee and juice selections. If you have the time, treat yourself to a made to order hot breakfast. At lunch time, you can indulge in a wide variety of choices ranging from steak to hot dishes to specialty items like handmade chicken tenders.

Meals and individual items are very reasonably priced. All food is made by students in Mitchell Tech’s highly regarded Culinary Academy. Menus are posted via email and on campus electronic monitors.
