Cafe Mac

You can find dishes from all over the world in our dining hall, Cafe Mac. Our chefs  make crave-worthy dishes — built on whole grains, deep-color vegetables, fresh fruits, and lean or plant-based proteins — that people look forward to eating every day. But with a little ingenuity, you can create your own tasty recipes, too. Below, the Class of 2021 shares some of their favorite Cafe Mac creations.

Mac-uccino … and chilly fries

Ice cream sundae

Make an ice cream sundae with the waffle toppings in Cafe Mac when it’s breakfast for dinner! And if you want, make a waffle too!! It makes a fun dessert!

Order chicken tenders at the grille and ask for no side: you’ll get more tendies.
—Robert Shepetin


Cafe Mac and Cheese

Milk; plain pasta (pasta bar);
butter + cream cheese (salad bar);
LOTS of cheese (the grille + salad bar). 

Microwave the pasta with butter and milk (2-3 minutes) then add in the rest of the ingredients. The residual heat will perfectly melt the cheese!
