The new Titus Creek Caf will feature a variety of dishes prepared by students in the school's Culinary Arts program.
Dan Thiessen, the program's director, said operators are trying to build momentum for the opening through Facebook. He said via email the winter quarter is shaping up to be one with a list of "new" features, including the eatery.
The menu will be ever changing, but will always include panini and deli sandwiches, salads, hot entrees, grab-and-go options and an array of breads and pastries according to the instruction schedule. American fare and pizza are also expected on the menu.
The foods will be prepared in the demonstration kitchen, under caf and catering chef James Anderson.
