Food Service

MIAD Café

MIAD’s café offers cuisine to please everyone’s ‘palette,’ including vegan and vegetarian options. The MIAD Café is open Monday through Friday for breakfast and lunch and into the evening Monday through Thursday for snacks. You can join us for breakfast, a sandwich, salad and a daily special of a hot meal. The newly designed Café is your place to hang out, do homework and grab a bite to eat.

Students may purchase a meal card in advance for the MIAD Café. This eliminates the need to worry about bringing a lunch or carrying cash everyday. The MIAD Café Card can be used for purchases in the Café only.  A continuing balance is maintained in the food service database, and students can find out from the cashier at any time how much is remaining on the card. Debit and credit cards are also accepted.

Students living at MIAD’s Residence Hall, TWO50TWO, have been enrolled in a MIAD Café Meal plan at the rate of $250 per semester but can increase their meal plan throughout the semester. Funds remaining on the meal card at the end of the fall semester can be carried over to the spring semester. However, funds remaining at the end of the spring semester are forfeited.

MIAD’s café is operated by American Dining Creations. Contact them at adc@miad.edu for catering or other questions.
