What’s up, my wonderful audience of people? Today I feel especially inclined to make known to you my experience at the Caf here at Biola. “What is the Caf,” you ask? “Where is the ‘é’,” you ask? Both are excellent questions! For reasons unbeknownst to me, the word on the front of the glass doors leading into the Caf seems to be the word ‘café’, however there is an empty space where the letter ‘e’ may or may not have been. Whether this was intended in the original design plan or not, I’m not sure. If I ever figure it out, I’ll let you know.
The Caf is wonderful. When going for the first time, you might feel somewhat overwhelmed by all of the options. There are countless stations with an array of foods and desserts. However, once you overcome this initial anxiety, you begin to truly embark on a wonderful culinary experience.
First of all, there is the Pizzaria, which is my personal favorite. You can count on fresh pepperoni pizza any day of the week with the possibility of various other types of delicious pizza such as spinach with balsamic glaze, alfredo and pesto, or even strawberries. On special occasions, they even serve calzones! Next, there is the MTO (Made to Order), typically holding some sort of zesty food ranging anywhere from tofu and rice to potato-type-burger things. This is another great choice, and the chefs cook your food right in front of you! The next food station is Home Cookin'. The name speaks for itself; it holds a variety of stews, roasts, vegetables, potatoes, etc. It’s simply marvelous. Another option is 6th Street Grill. If you’re a fan of burgers and fries, authentic Mexican food, and even omelettes, this is your station.
There are various other stations that are meant to allow students to make their own creation such as the Garden (endless possibilities for salads), a grains station with cakes and puddings (and just about any bread you can think up), and even a soft serve ice cream station.
I could continue with the explosion of love I have for the Caf, but I imagine you get the point. If you haven’t gotten the chance to hit up the Caf, I strongly recommend visiting campus and checking it out! Plus, there’s plenty of other parts of campus I think you’ll find you like.
P. S. Don’t use a tray.
