About the Café

Welcome to the Café at Eckles!

To serve the MU and Columbia communities, we offer a variety of lunch menu items, including appetizers, salads, soups, sandwiches, wraps and desserts, during the spring semester. Prices per menu item range from $5.25 to $6.75, and we accept student charge. Our current menu (PDF) includes dishes you can enjoy at our dining location in Room 154 Stringer Wing of Eckles Hall, or you can place a pick-up order for a to-go lunch.

Operating the café are students and faculty of our division’s Hospitality Management program. At the café, students enrolled in the “Food Production Management” course gain hands-on food and beverage business skills. They participate in the café’s operations by conceptualizing and planning the café; standardizing recipes; monitoring food sanitation and safety protocol; and ensuring excellent quality, service and professionalism.

The Café at Eckles is self-funded. We appreciate the continued support and sponsorship of the community, industry professionals, students and alumni.

Hospitality Management Dinner Series

During the fall semester, the Café at Eckles offers an evening dinner series. Each themed event treats guests to a four-course fine dining experience.

As hosts of the dinner series, our division’s Hospitality Management students have an opportunity to showcase the knowledge and skills they have developed during their studies. Student teams plan, organize and coordinate each meal. Their responsibilities include menu development, dining room layout, budgeting, employee staffing, meal production and service.

Look for our fall 2019 dinner series schedule in September.
