Scholars Restaurant and On The Terrace Café

The School of Hospitality staff and students look forward to welcoming you to Scholars’ Restaurant and On The Terrace Café @ Scholars in 2019.

This year we have seven Hospitality qualifications being delivered at our Hawke’s Bay campus with each programme offering varied and exciting dining options.

High Tea and Dessert Degustation – Level 5 Patisserie: After the success of these two events last year, we are thrilled to offer them again in 2019. We will be serving a High Tea with a selection of petite cakes, sandwiches and sweet treats with tea and coffee included. With over 10 items per person, this is a not to be missed event. We will also be creating a six course Dessert Degustation with the option to wine match. This will feature creative dessert and some savoury plates made up of many components, highlighting the skills and artistic flair of the students.

Scholars’ Restaurant – Level 4 Cookery and Level 3 Food and Beverage: Our new students get their first taste of a real restaurant dining experience with our Bistro Pub Dinners. These were very popular last year and are back on Wednesday and Thursday nights during the first and second term. Soup of the Day, a choice of three main courses and Dessert of the Day – all for only $25.00. Bookings are essential. We will also be offering our Mid-Winter Christmas Dinners and Christmas Bistro lunch over two weeks in June.

Locavore Market – Level 5: Our Level 5 Cookery students will again showcase the region’s fantastic produce using their skills with our own Farmers’ Market with homemade jams, chutneys, smoked meats, pates and other charcuterie items. This will be held in room R101 R Block Bakery Shop Day – Level 4 Bakery – Our Bakery students will be running a shop day this semester producing all things baking – breads, yeast goods and other assorted pastry items. This will run from Scholars Restaurant on Friday, 28 June from 11.00am.

On The Terrace Café – Level 3 Food and Beverage: A fabulous selection of café style foods, great espresso coffee and tempting desserts. These items range from $4-$10. There is no need to book for these lunches, unless you have a party of 10 or more people.

This year we will also be offering two weeks of breakfasts in late May-early June.
