Your dining facility will be based on your meeting and sleeping accommodations. Each of our dining facilities has its own executive chef and registered dietician, as well as its own unique menu and atmosphere.
Located at 2415 Bowditch Street, Crossroads is the first green-certified building on Berkeley’s campus and the nation's first organic certified kitchen on a college campus.
Crossroads features nine distinct stations: world cuisine, Mexican, freshly baked pizza, made-to-order deli, salad bar, comfort foods, vegetarian/vegan, grilled entrées, bakery and dessert selections and a variety of homemade soups, cereals, and beverages.
Crossroads has a slightly different dinner schedule than the other dining facilities, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Café 3 features a newly designed menu that intentionally increases the ratio of plant-centric foods to animal products, without compromising flavor. The menu focuses on food that is at the intersection of delicious, nutritious, and sustainable, and does not include pork and shellfish. Whether you're looking for vegetarian, vegan, or kosher food options, this "dining hall for all" aims to provide more options for our diverse community. The new center station is certified kosher, which also caters to those on the hunt for halal food. Café 3 features different dining platforms serving globally-inspired and local organic menu options.
