Student-Run Restaurants

The Bergen Room
Culinary, Baking and Hospitality Management students work together, under the direction of the faculty, to deliver high quality food and service to the public. Throughout the semester, students rotate between stations as part of their laboratory learning experience. Your support gives each student a change to work a variety of positions.

The “Bergen Cafe” in C-210 at Pitkin Hall at the Paramus Campus is now open to the public for Lunch during the Fall semester on Tuesdays from 11:30 A.M.  to 12:45 P.M. A modified buffet for $8 includes beverages, soups, made-to-order salads, main courses, side dishes, artisan breads and fine pastries.  Seating is on a first-come-first-served basis during the Fall.
