Pride Cafe Highlights

Pizza Station
- the new stone-hearth oven is one of the first thing customers notices as they enter the new Pride Cafe. The burning fire can be seen throughout the service area and seating areas. It's not just a pretty oven either....the pizza is PHENOMENAL!

Vegetarian Station - Vegetarians will be happy to know that they have an entire station all to themselves! Non-vegetarians will be happy to know that they can also enjoy this station if they want. Everything is prepared fresh, right in front of the customer.

Grill Station - This is what display cooking is all about! Our huge new flat top grill provides us the flexibility and space we need to offer our customers unbelievably delicious grill items!

Home Station - It's exactly what you would expect from a station called "Home". Your favorite comfort food options and a few you may not have known are your favorites!

Expo Station - The new center island features a great new station with interchangable equipment and an exhaust hood which gives the Widener Dining team some creative freedom in delivering a unique dining experience.

Deli Station - Another example of more equipment allowing for more variety and flexibility! Featuring a specialty deli item everyday and sliced deli meats that are home roasted and/or smoked in the Pride Cafe's new rotisserie oven locationed behind the Home station.
