California Cafe

Located in the bustling Walker Student Center, California Café is a great place to grab something on the run, find something to snack on while you study, or meet friends for an evening coffee break.

You can count on a robust grab-and-go menu featuring a selection of house-made salads, deli sandwiches and snacks or something from the grill like one of our delicious burgers.

Use the mobile ordering app so that your meal is ready when you arrive. 

(Students with the Flex Meal Exchange can use one meal swipe per day for a combo meal at Cali instead of eating in Kresge.)

Open Monday - Friday 8:30 a.m. - 8:30 p.m.
