Campus Dining

Among colleges on Long Island, the Five Towns College Upbeat Café offers a variety of nutritious food that satisfies all palates. Students, faculty, and staff can find menu choices that include hot entrees as well as an assortment of sandwich specialties and salads. The food is reasonably priced, giving value for the dollar. The Café at our Long Island college serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner in an informal atmosphere that promotes congeniality and the opportunity to establish new and lasting friendships. This atmosphere has spread to the Downbeat Café that offers a less extensive menu in the early evening to residents and participants in Student Activities.

Take advantage of not only good food, but also good company!
