Students eat, meet, and work in the café, which serves local, seasonal food in the morning and afternoon.

the café

With a panoramic view of San Francisco Bay, SFAI’s Café provides students with good food and a place to meet with fellow students and faculty.

The menu features weekly specials and a selection of vegetarian and vegan options. Visitors from surrounding neighborhoods and tourists are all welcome to come and sample the cuisine.

The Café at SFAI serves breakfast, lunch, and light fare. All food is made from ingredients that are organic, local, and seasonal, and the menu changes daily. For breakfast and throughout the morning, we offer pastries, bagels, organic fresh-squeezed juice, bacon and eggs, and hot cereal. For lunch and throughout the afternoon, we offer soups, salads, sandwiches, entrées, and desserts. We also serve organic fair-trade coffee and espresso, and organic teas.

Hours of operation during the spring and fall semesters:
Monday – Friday, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm
