The café’s fare ranges from pastries, omelets and quiche for breakfast to salads, soups, Panini sandwiches, pasta, fish and desserts for lunch. Patrons will always find espresso drinks, fresh fruit and beverages.
In the evening, Café Tempo offers college and private catering, often in the form of elegant sit-down dinners before shows in the college’s performing arts spaces.
