The Main Line Café

The Peru State College Dining Hall is arranged around destinations – action station areas that promote fun and excitement at everyday meals. Instead of all the food preparation occurring behind the scenes in a back kitchen, Fresh Ideas brings the action of a kitchen to our guests.

The Roasterie

The Roasterie serves gourmet coffee and snacks in a comfy setting. The coffeehouse style cafe serves hot and cold beverages, as well as fresh baked muffins, scones, breads, and cookies in a relaxed space. The Roasterie at Peru State is a great place to hangout. Guests looking for an alternative to coffee, love our tea and fountain drinks.

The Roasterie at Peru State College is open Monday through Friday. In a hurry? Our Fresh & Go line is a selection of quick grab and go convenience items for when you don’t have time to eat at the dining hall. We offer a variety of freshly prepared items including deli sandwiches, wraps, and an array of snacks. Watch for new items on the menu and seasonal specials.
