Whether you need a full meal or just a coffee to keep you running, the MCAD Cafe has you covered. Unique Food Solutions, MCAD's food service provider, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner during the academic year offering a wide variety of fresh food options that are healthy and delicious on both our regular menu and through our daily rotating specials. We do our best to accommodate those with special dietary needs and preferences, including offering a selection of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options, to name a few.

Cafe Declining-Balance Meal Cards

While cash and credit cards are accepted at the Cafe, students are encouraged to purchase a declining-balance meal card which operates much like a gift card. It provides a convenient method to pay for meals at the Cafe or through the online, mobile-order system.

Though a physical card is available, we recommend students use easy-to-use virtual cards that are kept on student's personal cell phones. They give students immediate access to card balances and can be easily increased in value. Alternatively, students can get assistance in person during regular business hours. Declining-balance meal cards for the Cafe are nonrefundable for unused balances.

Cafe Mobile Ordering

If you are on the go and don't have time to dine in, use our mobile ordering site for a quick and convenient grab-and-go meal. Visit to place your order.

Self Serve Micro Market & Vending

A Micro Market is located in the Cafe and offers a wide variety of items including frozen pizza's, frozen meals, beverages, snacks, and sandwiches. The self-serve market is open 24 hours 7 days a week and accepts credit/debit cards and MCAD Cafe meal cards. There are also 3 vending machines in the Cafe that accept cash, coins and credit cards. A second market is being added in the Library this fall.


We can accommodate all your catering needs large or small. whether it's a small meeting or a large Lunch Buffet. See the MCAD Catering Guide to get started.
