Additional Information

Explore the menu on your café’s website at www.cafebonappetit.com and review the various options. Our cafés generally include the name of known food allergens in the menu item name and/or through a restaurant-style descriptor. Talk with us for more information about specific product brands and to see labels for purchased items —  don’t be afraid to ask questions! Contact the chef or manager in your location if you have questions about a menu item. If you are a “regular” in the cafe, set up a time to meet with our team and discuss safe “go-to” meals that you can always count on being available.

Additional information

Pick a station that best fits what you can eat. It is best to avoid riskier choices with high opportunities for accidentaly exposure. Some examples include (depending on your allergy): Asian-style stations, bakery, salad bars and fried foods.  When you're craving an option that might be high risk because of the self-serve style talk to our staff, we’ll be happy to pull a portion for you that has not been out on the line. Eat slightly off “peak” when the café is not as busy, preferably earlier in the day or meal period. The staff will have more time to answer questions or pull a special portion from the kitchen for you, and there will have been less opportunity for drips and spills at self-serve stations  from other guests.
