Santiam Restaurant

This fine dining restaurant, located on the second floor of the Calapooia Center Building in room CC-201 is operated by students in the Culinary Arts Program. First-year students train as wait staff while second-year students prepare you the best meal in the confines of a college campus.

This full service a la carte restaurant was developed to train dinner house cooks, wait staff, and restaurant managers under realistic conditions. Espresso, coffee and pastries are available between 9:30 a.m to 11:00 a.m., and lunch seating is from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Monday through Thursday during school term. The menu changes daily and gives student chefs a chance to show their creativity through daily specials.
