Bon Appetit's On-Campus Cafeterias and Restaurants
Starving? Head to Rastall Cafe in the Worner Campus Center for an all-you-can eat buffet-style smorgasbord. A gathering place for our entire community, Rastall offers a wide range of meal options from "traditional" comfort foods to international delicacies to nutritious vegetarian and vegan options. In addition to a grill station, which offers made-to-order all-natural beef and antibiotic-free chicken, Rastall houses kiosks for the flavors of Southeast Asia; hand-made pizzas and pastas; massive salad and sandwich bars with local, seasonal produce; made-from-scratch soups; and an omelette bar on lazy weekend mornings. All stations rotate menus on a daily basis, supplying a wide variety of options for all members of the CC community.
Benjamin's - also known affectionately as "Benji's" - is located in the Worner Campus Center. In addition to all-natural beef burgers and other grill selections, Benji's features traditional Mexican favorites, like nachos and jaw-stretching burritos, and house-rolled sushi and rice bowls. Need to grab and go? Benji's also offers a stock of freshly-prepared sandwiches, salads, house made desserts, and bottled beverages for students in a rush.
Looking to stock your in-room refrigerator with local and seasonal snacks, lunches and dinners? For locally grown produce, health snacks, and organic groceries, head to one of Bon Appetit's retail locations - The Preserve. Located on the lower level of the Western Ridge Apartment Complex, The Preserve offers freshly-prepared sandwiches, soups, and salads, as well as a daily rotating menu of made-to-order entrees and a stunning view of Pikes Peak.
