Guests

Cal Dining's services are tailored for our core campus customers, however our facilities are open to the public.

We welcome you into any of our locations. Below is some helpful information for campus visitors:


Meal Vouchers

If you are interested in visiting our all-you-care-to-eat dining commons, apply for guest meal vouchers. Please note that guest meal vouchers for large groups (over 100 guests) can be accommodated only Monday-Friday from 11am-12pm and 1pm-2pm.

For questions, please contact us at 510.643.8323 or mealvouchers@berkeley.edu.


Pricing for Dining Commons Guests

Anyone with a meal plan may use flex dollars for guests they invite (including children) to the dining commons. This is an even greater value considering that meals in the dining commons are “all you care to eat.”

Here is the cost of a guest meal when using flex dollars versus cash/Cal 1 Card debit.

Meal service Flex dollars Cash / Cal 1 Card Debit
Breakfast 8 $10
Lunch / Brunch 11.25 $13
Dinner 12 $14
Children (ages 5 to 11)   $10.50
Children under 5 Free Free

Note: Anyone who wishes to eat in the dining commons may do so if they pay in cash; they also may bring children and pay the children’s rates. You do not need a meal plan or a Cal 1 Card.
