Carleton’s Premier Residence Dining Facility

Located on the 3rd Floor of Teraanga Commons (formerly the Residence Commons Building), the caf is an all-you-care-to-eat facility. This year we will be featuring unique stations that will still offer a wide variety of food choice to our students.

Your health and safety continue to be our top priority and we are committed to ensuring that the caf offers a safe dining experience for everyone.

Dietary Restrictions or Severe Allergies?

We do not use any peanut or tree nuts in our recipes and we do not purchase products with peanuts or tree nuts in the ingredient list. However, please note that there is always a risk of cross contamination due to our open kitchens. Hence, we advise our guests with food allergies to communicate them to our chefs and Registered Dietitian prior to dining at the caf.

For more information on how we accommodate for students with severe allergies on campus, refer to Carleton Dining’s Allergen Guide.
