    Personal Relationships ... Exceptional Culinary Experiences. 

    Every day, Parkhurst Dining Services serves a variety of menu options tailored to the tastes of Capital’s campus community. The Capital Court Dining Room offers everything from Asian stir-fry, to American classics and a fresh salad bar. The One Main Cafe is our American grill and deli and The Mezz, located on the 3rd floor of the Harry C. Moores Campus Center, offers up made to order pizza, pasta, and salad concepts.

    Our Approach to Food

    Great food starts with the freshest ingredients. At Parkhurst this means:
    • Seasonal fresh vegetable options are offered daily
    • A minimum of five seasonal fresh whole fruits are offered daily
    • Beef that is USDA choice or above
    • Fresh cut French fries prepared daily at our grill 
     

     When it comes to nutrition and taste, we don’t cut corners. That’s why we serve:
    • Mashed potatoes are made from scratch using fresh, whole, unpeeled potatoes.
    • Real dairy products are always used. No imitations are allowed.
    • Croutons freshly baked in-house. Stocks are used to make all soups and salad dressings made fresh in-house.
     

     Our commitment to quality extends to the way we prepare our food:
    • A minimum of eight fresh, non-processed, chilled vegetables will be available daily on our salad bar
    • Scratch cooking with a focus on fresh, local, non-processed ingredients
    • No MSG or food preservatives are added to any items produced in our kitchen
    • Foods are prepared to order, or cooked in small batches as close to service as possible, to ensure maximum flavor, nutrients, and freshness
