As of October 3, 2022, masking in all indoor settings on campus, with the exception of instructional spaces, is voluntary. See further details at Together.Caltech.edu

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.

In order to speed up wait times & orders, we've removed a handful of menu options from some of our menus. Avoiding the added delay of customized salad & sandwich orders, many of our cold sandwiches & salads will be available prepackaged for quick grab-n-go service.

  • Until further notice we are only accepting credit card, Caltech ID, and SmartCash transactions.
  • Our mission is to provide exceptional service to this community while ensuring your health and safety.

We appreciate your patience, feedback, and smiles.

Some suggestions so we can expedite your service:

- Visit during off-peak hours, e.g., 5 p.m. – 9 p.m.
- Choose to visit in singles or in pairs rather than by House.
- Determine what you want to order your order before you get to the register.
- Limit custom orders that generally take longer to prepare.
- If you see a long line, come back later, or continue the line outside our entrance doors.
- Please listen for your number to be called.
