The Local Cafe and Restaurant was created to offer experiential learning opportunities for our students. The Local is located on Centennial College, Progress Campus.
At the Local, the hospitality, culinary and baking students learn in the restaurant as part of their embedded courses as well as their field placement's under the direction of our Faculty, Chef and Restaurant Technicians.

Our menus are inspired by the international flavor profiles that represent the incredibly rich diversity of those who call Scarborough home. While sourcing locally available ingredients from the bounty of this Province, we have designed an interactive dining experience for our guests, featuring a seasonally inspired market style lunch, internationally inspired dinner buffet with nightly features and a weekend brunch.

Join us in the restaurant or visit the cafe for coffee, baked goods or takeaway meals. Our students look forward to welcoming you!
