The café is located in the Campus Center building (CC)
Reservations are Open for International Buffet!
Please keep in mind there are only about 20 reservations available per buffet
To make a reservation:
Each guest will be called, over the next few days, in the order in which we received emails, to confirm date and time.
Since we are doing everything in house, without a reservation system, there will be a waitlist.
Payment will be taken by student servers at the end of the meal. No need to go to the bookstore or coffee shop, just come straight to Café Culinaire.
We will be seating fewer guests per buffet, so our ONE BUFFET per guest rule is being reinstated.
- Please don’t make reservations under different names and bring the same people
- Please don’t use a fake name to get more reservations
- Please don’t yell at our students for this rule, as it was not their decision
- Please respect our decision in this matter, as it is to benefit the students and make sure more guests are able to experience the buffets.

We will have seatings at 11:30am and 12:00pm each Friday. The meal will last approximately one hour, so please plan accordingly as there is no guarantee on the time frame. Buffets are $16.95 and payment will be taken at the end of service. The Buffet will be different than past years, but will still be an excellent experience.
There are no to-go boxes available for the buffet
Some menu items may be unavailable from time to time due to student absence and/or performance.
Due to the nature of the class, dietary restrictions are difficult to accommodate. Top 8 allergens are noted on the buffet labels and are well known by the student servers. Please communicate dietary restrictions, with the dining room instructor, prior to the day of your reservation.
If you cannot make your reservation, please call at least 48 hours in advanced so we can fill the table. Any no show reservations will be charged the full meal amount for each guest. You may get another party to fill your table, just let us know!
We accept reservations for parties of 1-4 guests. We often do family style seating and you may be seated with another party. You could leave with a new friend!
We have zero control over power outages, snow, and school closures. If the school is closed on Thursday or Friday, there will be no buffet.
We are so thrilled with the level of excitement and the excellent patronage of our International Buffet; we couldn’t do it without you, but we do have a gentle reminder that International Buffet is a class and our servers/cooks are students. We will accommodate our guests, as much as we are able, but sometimes we are restricted, due to the nature of the curriculum.
