The Charger Cafe provides services to students in 7th – 12th grade. The Cafe was designed to accommodate student needs throughout the day and not just an easy lunch. This includes a variety of quality meals for students, including popular dishes, healthy options, snacks, breakfast, and more. It is not uncommon for our growing students to purchase breakfast during break time, a full lunch, and a snack at some point, so please discuss budget and nutritional guidelines with you children as needed. The Cafe is open from 7:30am until 3:30pm to accommodate everyone from those wanting breakfast to those wanting to refuel before sports.
The Charger Cafe menu will vary by season with daily specials and occasional specialty bars. The menu varies by day but is the same weekly. Students have access to a wide variety of selections throughout the week, such as; burgers, chicken sandwiches, salads, panini, wraps, deli sandwiches, pizza, chicken strips, specialty sandwiches, vegetarian dishes, hot bowls, pastas, home-style favorites, baked potatoes, breakfast sandwiches, fresh cut fruits, parfaits, whole fruits, fresh veggies with dip, hummus, and much more.
Specials will change daily and portions of the main menu will change seasonally. The Cafe offers a cold bar that allows students to customize their sandwiches and salads as needed. The Cafe also provides hot soups and chilli a majority of the year, along with occasional specialty lines where students can build their own sandwiches, pasta dishes, salads and more. Prices will range between $2.75 and $6 for lunch/breakfast items. A microwave is provided in the “Grape Room” and a water station is positioned next to the Cafe.
