The Finest in Hospitality – Stanford’s Retail Cafés

So much to choose from, so little time. Stanford Hospitality & Auxiliaries provides innovative products and services for the evolving needs of our campus community – and our environment. Our retail cafés offer their own distinct ambiance, and a range of delicious, nutritious, regional and international cuisines for pleasurable dining on a busy schedule. Always mindful of our community’s needs, our award-winning chefs provide vegan and vegetarian options with every menu. Along with offering greater flexibility with student meal plans, proceeds from R&DE Stanford retail cafés help offset increases in room and board, and support student programs.
