Academy Cafe

Welcome to the Academy Cafe.

The Cafe is a themed restaurant created by the Advanced Culinary students at the Alaska Culinary Academy. During their training students gain experience in all aspects of the food service business, including food preparation to order and proper meal service.

Students create the menu, prepare and serve it to you in a full-service restaurant setting. All menu items are prepared from scratch. The menu is a variation of “Pre-Fixe”, one price including all courses.

We are very pleased to have our new instructor, Chef Allen Faigin, take the lead in guiding our advanced students through this final stage of their training.

This spring the students chose a contemporary European Bistro-themed menu that celebrates community, our Pacific bounty, and delicious food. The style of cuisine is warm hearted and satisfying, accented by the season, and richly flavored by both hundreds of years of tradition and fresh creative thought.

The price is $25 per person and includes all food choices and beverages. We offer tables for 2, 4, and 6 people. Tables for more than 6-people are not available. 

Here is the Spring Menu. Spring Cafe open May 14-June 17.
