Scholars Restaurant and On The Terrace Café


Scholars Restaurant and On The Terrace Café @ Scholars welcome you to join us for our productions in Semester 2 this year.

This semester we are bringing something new to our restaurant. We will be offering A La Carte Breakfasts from 7.30am – 9am on Wednesday and Thursday for a 4 week period. Whether it be a group of friends or a breakfast meeting, start your day off right with a nourishing breakfast.

Our returning Level 4 Chef students showcase their skills in a series of A la Carte dinners during August and September. The new intake of Professional Cookery students will run a two week block of Christmas themed Bistro lunches in November.

Our Diploma in Professional Chef Practice and Professional Food and Beverage students will end their year with a fabulous Degustation French themed dinner during November. A 10 course menu with tastes of regional French fare and an option to match wines with the menu. This has now been running for 3 years and has proven to be very popular, with nights sold out weeks in advance. So, get in quick to avoid disappointment.

Due to popular demand, we will again run 2 ‘Tapas’ style quiz nights mid October. These are very popular, so start organizing your team – 6 per team.

On The Terrace Café will be providing counter service lunches Tuesday to Thursday through our Café Service programme. The students will be serving a fabulous selection of café style foods, great espresso coffee and tempting desserts. These items range from $4 – $8. There is no need to book for these lunches unless you have a party of 10 or more people.

OTT will hold a ‘Pub Night’ this semester, offering bar food and beverages from 5 till 7pm. This is to give our students a more realistic ‘Bar’ experience so pop along for a drink and snack.

We are also offering café style lunches most Fridays in Term 3 only. These are run by our Trades Academy students. These students are still at school, but come to EIT every Friday to study various trade related careers. Please note that these lunches are not licensed.
