Food and Vending Services

Central Piedmont offers a variety of dining options across all six campuses, featuring full-service coffee bars, grab and go lunch stations, sandwich shops, breakfast/lunch locations, and more.

Beach & Borough Sandwich Shop

West coast subs and the Manhattan sandwich shop society flavors collide at Beach & Borough Sandwich Shop. Select one of our signature sandwiches or build your own with your choice of artisanal breads, all-natural cheeses, colorful veggies, clean label meats and fresh in-house made spreads, pickles and chips.

Catalyst Coffee Bar

Our curated coffee bar experience will include Blk & Bold coffee, specialty beverages, espresso, nitro cold brew, hot tea and specialty blended beverages and smoothies. In addition, you’ll find locally sourced pastries and freshly prepared grab and go sandwiches, salads, desserts, yogurt cups and more. Hours of operation for Cato, Harper, Harris, and Merancas Campuses will be added when available.

Order Ahead with Connect & Pay App

Look for the Connect & Pay icon in your app store

Ordering food at Central or Levine Campuses? Pay with your phone using our new “Connect & Pay” app that also lets you skip the line and order ahead at selected Central Piedmont dining locations. All Catalyst coffee bar and Beach & Borough sandwich shop locations are cashless, so payments for food, grab and go items, and beverages can be made only through credit/debit cards and the app. 

The Connect & Pay app allows you to order and customize your favorite campus specialty beverages and food selections, pay, and then pick up at a time that is convenient for you. You can also see current promotions, rewards, and offers.
