"Since it opened, Wheat Café has been a popular dining destination," said Jim Mulyk, Assistant Professor of Culinary Arts. "Our clients enjoy both the creative menus and the attention they receive from our hospitality students."

Located in the Culinary & Hospitality Center, Wheat Café is a 60-seat casual dining restaurant staffed by Culinary Arts and Hospitality/Restaurant Management students. Students use fresh regional and seasonal ingredients in their American cuisine, and menus change each month.

The menu at the Culinary Market, also located in the CHC next to Wheat Café, changes daily and is tied to the curriculum of several classes.
