Café at Eckles

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, sandwiches, wraps and desserts. Prices per menu item range from $5.25 to $9.75. 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.
