The Bakery Café is a student-run, faculty-led teaching restaurant at the CIA at Greystone. These students are in their final courses, and will soon graduate to become top chefs or continue in their studies to become future leaders, entrepreneurs, or innovators in the food industry. Baking and Pastry students spend their semester rotating through and perfecting various positions within the front- and back-of-house to gain the hands-on experience that prepares them for the industry.
