Catherine's Cafe

Catherine's Café at Mercedes College is managed by LAPG Education and staffed by a Chef Manager and two assistants.  The Cafe focuses on healthy food choices, underpinned by a 'smart food' program using fresh, seasonal produce.  The ratio of freshly prepared food far outweighs bought in product, with ratios of at least 80:20 and the Café's philosophy is to educate or reinforce some clear and simple life food messages.

The fully self-serviced facility, which is open from Monday to Friday for brakfast (from 7.30am), recess and lunch, will focus on 'smart food' choices:

  • A 'grab and go' fridge menu, stocked with a range of yohurts, dips, fruit and vegetable based salads, gourmet filled wraps and rolls, etc.
  • Fresh hot food menu each day.
  • Bakery station with home-made cakes featured daily.
  • Espresso (coffee only available to Year 12 students).
  • A dedicated wellbeing snacks counter.

Café prices are kept as low as possible whilst ensuring that only the freshest produce is used.  Summer and Winter Price Lists, and weekly menus will provide plenty of variety and choice.  The Café operates on a cash only basis with absolutely no credit available.  Ordering of food is not required.

To ensure good order and speedy service students are expected to follow Café guidelines:

  • No bags, files or books in the Café
  • Lines to be single file and no letting of friends in the line
  • Only those students purchasing food are to be in line, friends to wait outside
  • Only one student at a time to line up at the cash registers, with money ready.

For the first two weeks of the new academic year, Year 7 students will be dismissed from class five minutes before recess and lunch so they can become familiar with how the Café operates.
