How is SLACafé different from Harvest Café?

Based on feedback from the customer survey conducted at SLAC, SLACafé includes more Grab 'n' Go items, tempting grilled sandwiches, a soup and salad bar and tasty new sides. Now, SLACafé offers wholesome hot comfort foods sold by weight for breakfast and lunch. The menu, facility, equipment and service are all designed with the SLAC community in mind.

How can staff provide input and give feedback?

The SLACafé website offers lots of information. Suggestions, observations and comments are all welcome. For now, contact Ahmad Leylani ( , Business Operations Manager.

Are credit cards accepted?

Absolutely! The SLACafé uses the Revel point of sale system which makes cashless sales the most efficient way to pay for your meals. You may elect to pay in cash, but paying with meal plans, credit cards and even Apple Pay are the fastest ways.

Will there be added benefits for those who eat there more often?

Again, yes. The new Revel point of sale program will provide our customers with many ways to enjoy their meals. In the future, look for self-order kiosks in the café and the R&DEFoodToGo app that will allow you order from anywhere, choose your pickup time and pay for it all on your timeline. Meal plan holders will also be awarded “pop-up” rewards and specials via emails and the website.
