dining-1When you enter the dining hall, you will notice a major change in the layout and look of our food court. Enjoy our newly designed market that offers many options to suit your needs. We offer a grand Salad Bar, Deli Bar, and a new Gas-Burning Pizza Oven with hand-tossed pizzas daily. Our homemade soups and desserts will tempt your taste buds while the aroma of freshly ground coffee beans fill the air and heighten your sense of smell.

Delight in the aroma of chickens roasting in the new Rotisserie Oven. Some other new stations include an “Allergy-Free Zone” display case, to include Gluten, Nut and Dairy-Free foods. Along with these new stations, we have a demo counter that will serve many duties as a Carving Station, Sushi Station, or Chopped Salad.

Top off your meal by stopping by our new “Ice Cream Bar.” You can create your very own ice cream sundae!

dining-3Make-Your-Own Waffles will be available throughout the day as well as cereals and breads during lunchtime. As always, we subscribe to “No Meat Fridays” unless specified by the Church. Our major celebrations of St. Patrick’s Day, St. Joseph’s Day, Oktoberfest and Italian Night will continue as usual.

We have a snack bar as well, where you can pay to get orders of wings, mozzarella sticks, pizza, fries, milkshakes, sundaes. and burgers.

We encourage student feedback and like to incorporate any family recipes you might have and want to share. Our focus is always using fresh, local produce and meats whenever possible and we try to offer a wide variety of menu options that should suit your dietary needs.

If you have any food allergies or questions about any dietary issues, please don’t hesitate to contact the Chef. If your situation requires specific restrictions, please have your doctor fill out the “Medical Dietary Form” link on the “Special Services” page and have it returned to the Chef as soon as possible so we can help you. If you are not making the right food choices and want help in maintaining a balanced and nutritional diet, please see the Chef first. If the Chef can’t answer your questions, he will refer you to the school Nurse, who will then put you in touch with our registered Dietician at no charge to the student to assist you in this area.
