The Adobe Lodge, proudly serves the Santa Clara University Faculty and Staff as a daily retreat and cafe. This charming historic lodge was built in 1822 and is the only adobe brick building remaining from the original Santa Clara Mission. It was completely restored in 1981 and is open to the community for hosting special events after cafe hours. We look forward to sharing this hidden gem with you!

Our wellness commitments

Food Allergies

We serve thousands of guests with food allergies and sensitivities safely in our cafés every day. Our chefs, managers, and dietitians work closely with our food-allergic guests to create reasonable solutions to help them eat what they love. If you have questions about eating for your dietary needs in our cafés, reach out to us: we’ll gladly meet with you.

Food allergies & sensitivities


Wellness also includes the health of the animals, the workers, the community, and the Earth. They’re all connected. Bon Appétit has been committed to “food service for a sustainable future” for decades, and we’ve led the food service industry in tackling many important issues, such as cage-free eggs, antibiotics in animal production, and farmworker rights.
