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.

The Roasterie

The Roasterie serves gourmet coffee and snacks in a comfy setting. The coffeehouse style cafe serves hot and cold beverages, as well as fresh baked muffins, scones, breads, and cookies in a relaxed space. The Roasterie at Peru State is a great place to hangout. Guests looking for an alternative to coffee, love our tea and fountain drinks.

The Roasterie at Peru State College is open Monday through Friday. In a hurry? Our Fresh & Go line is a selection of quick grab and go convenience items for when you don’t have time to eat at the dining hall. We offer a variety of freshly prepared items including deli sandwiches, wraps, and an array of snacks. Watch for new items on the menu and seasonal specials.
