SRJC Culinary Café & Bakery Opens

Santa Rosa Junior College’s (SRJC) Culinary Café has opened for the spring 2016 semester. Located in the B. Robert Burdo Culinary Arts Center directly across from the Santa Rosa campus, students at the SRJC Culinary Café serve a menu of seasonal salads, soups, sandwiches, pizzas, entrees and desserts in a contemporary fine dining setting. Items on the menu range from $6 to $18. The Café also serves award-winning Russian River Valley wines produced by SRJC’s Shone Farm Winery. The Culinary Café opens for lunch at 11:30 a.m. and serves until 2:00 p.m., Wednesday through Friday. Reservations are highly recommended and may be made by calling (707) 522-2796.

The SRJC Bakery features a variety of freshly baked pastries, cookies and artisan breads made by students in the school’s Baking and Pastry Program. Between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m., muffins, scones and Bella Rosa coffee drinks can be enjoyed in the Café’s dining room while watching culinary students prepare for the day’s lunch service. The Bakery’s offerings change weekly to reflect students’ learning, giving them an opportunity to let their imagination and artistic skills shine.

Café menu items, breads, pastries and desserts can be purchased for take-out until 2:00 p.m. Wednesday through Friday. Gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan selections are available both in the Bakery and on the Café menu.
