Your Table Is Waiting

Sharing meals is another opportunity you’ll have at University of Houston-Clear Lake to make special connections with other students, faculty and staff. Located on the first floor of the Bayou Building, the Patio Café can be an extension of your classroom. It can be a place where you can meet new people, catch up with friends, have a good meal, and even get a little homework done.

You can choose from a variety of food options, including Starbucks, different sandwich options, and grill items. This fall, UHCL Dining will introduce Grill Nation and Houston Street Subs as the newest offerings in place of the grill and deli station. The Fresh Fork also provides catering services to support your dining and event needs during and after business hours. To learn more about your menu options, visit Dine On Campus, operated by Chartwells.

Food Trucks and Chick-fil-A

Houston-area food trucks frequently park on the curb between the Bayou and Student Services buildings in Parking Lot D between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Chick-fil-A meals are also available at the Patio Café. Review the food truck and Chick-fil-A calendar for the full spring schedule and to learn about the variety of cuisines available for your dining pleasure. We also encourage you to follow UHCL on Twitter for any updates to the food truck schedule.
