The Main Line Café
The Peru State College Dining Hall is arranged around destinations – action station
areas that promote fun and excitement at everyday meals. Instead of all the food preparation
occurring behind the scenes in a back kitchen, Fresh Ideas brings the action of a
kitchen to our guests.
This all-you-care-to-eat dining venue offers a variety of menu options. Food is produced from the freshest ingredients and prepared just for you. Choose from the Chef’s Table featuring traditional home-style entrées. The Grill is made to order classics such as burgers and chicken. Trattoria features artisan style pizza, calzones, and pasta. Enjoy the Salad Station, along with an array of handcrafted desserts and beverages.
No time for breakfast? Too busy to stop for lunch? Missed out on dinner? Look for the Fresh on Demand micro-market powered by technology and fully-stocked with fresh food 24/7. Create your own combo or grab a few snacks using the FreshX app.
