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.
- PURCHASE a card at mcad.edu/cafecardpurchase
- Check card BALANCES or ADD VALUE at mcad.edu/cafecard
- Place an ONLINE ORDER at mcad.edu/cafeorder
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 mcad.edu/cafeorder to place your order.
Vending machines are located throughout campus for your convenience. They offer beverages, snacks, and sandwiches. Contact the firstname.lastname@example.org for any inquiries or suggestions.
