Since all students live on campus, the dining experience is an especially important part of life at Soka.

Overview

We partner with Bon Appétit, the premier name in university dining, to create a custom dining experience. Our chefs cook from scratch using fresh seasonal ingredients. They take their role in the community seriously through socially-responsible purchasing decisions and a commitment to serving great tasting, authentic, nutritious foods.

Soka Bistro

The cafe is located on the second floor of the Student Center and offers a variety of foods ranging from exciting exhibition stations with fresh American and international cuisine prepared before your eyes to delicious desserts. You’ll find a custom deli and extensive salad bar selections as well as soups made from scratch daily.  

The Bistro is open to students, staff, faculty, and the public. Meals at the Bistro are “All-you-care-to-eat” for those who dine in. A “To-go” box is available for patrons who are unable to dine in and can be requested at the register upon entry to the cafe.
