“Come and eat our homework”

Columbia College is excited to announce the re-opening of the Cellar Bistro and the newly renovated hospitality facilities in the lower level of the Manzanita building.

Thanks to the enormous support of local voters passing Measure E in 2004, we were able to remodel and update facilities across campus to promote student safety and success. The hospitality facilities have been renovated with state-of-the-art equipment that will promote learning through hands-on experience in food production and customer service. Each semester, faculty, staff and students as well as the public can enjoy food prepared by students under the direction of faculty in the Cellar Bistro. Front-of-house courses in Dining Room Service Management allow students to serve guests in a realistic setting.

Beginning Wednesday September 13, 2017, the Cellar Bistro will re-open to the public, continuing the past tradition of its Wednesday night dinners to offer themed meals.

The newly renovated culinary space is not only designed to provide a delightful dining experience for its community, but a modern teaching facility for hospitality management students. Students will master best practices in the food production and service industry, allowing them to go into the workforce with high-quality skills and experience.

The public and campus community is invited to the official ribbon cutting ceremony prior to the YCCD Board meeting at Columbia College on October 11, 2017 at 2:30 p.m.
