As the highly transmissible COVID-19 Delta variant continues to spread, Caltech has updated campus policies. Beginning Mon., Oct. 18, we will require proof of vaccination to access indoor campus spaces; this includes campus visitors. See details at

Caltech has four main dining locations on campus to satisfy any craving or meal. From fresh ground espresso beverages to ramen, we have it. Each location has its own unique menu. Please click on each dining location for menu information and hours of operation. For the fall term, in order to serve you better and to alleviate congestion at our dining locations, we're opening 3 temporary locations for lunch.

For your safety, we've had to make temporary changes to the way we serve you. In order to speed up wait times & orders, we've removed a handful of menu options from some of our menus. Avoiding the added delay of customized salad & sandwich orders, many of our cold sandwiches & salads will be available prepackaged for quick grab-n-go service. We are only accepting credit card, Caltech ID, and SmartCash transactions. Know that these changes are only temporary until we're allowed to serve you in our original capacity. Our mission is to provide exceptional service to this community while ensuring your health and safety. We appreciate your patience, feedback, and smiles (the only things we can see behind your masks).
