The café allows FSCJ students to showcase their culinary and service talents to the community.

The dining lab is for the Culinary Arts students and is similar to the former Mallard Room when the program was based at the FSCJ North Campus.

 The café is at the FSCJ Downtown Campus at 101 W. State St. in Building C, Room 106.

It is open 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday and also has seatings at 6:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. Thursday.

Lunch is $7 and dinner is $9.

Reservations are required by calling (904) 633-8151.

Meanwhile, the café at the FSCJ student housing project under development at 20 W. Adams St. will be called 20West Café. 

Students from the Culinary Arts program also will be involved with that café, which will be open to the public.
