Caltech has four main dining locations on campus to satisfy any craving or meal. From fresh ground espresso beverages to ramen, we have it. Each location has its own unique menu. Please click on each dining location for menu information and hours of operation.

CDS is committed your health and wellness! We've recently launched new menus at each of our locations. Wherever possible, we've replaced or removed a number of processed food ingredients with minimally processed or unprocessed alternatives. We also feature a number of antibiotic free, natural, minimally processed meats and cheeses. We hope you enjoy all of our improved changes and we look forward to seeing you soon!
