The largest variety of dietary offerings, unique cuisines, and customizable meals at UWM are offered at Cambridge Cafe and Sandburg Café. These locations offer walk up service for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and do not use the GET app.

These two locations have an extensive regular menu, including a fresh fruit bar with cut & whole items, a large salad bar, daily soup options, an in-house bakery, cereal bar, and beverage station. Sandburg Café offers a daily waffle bar, which is available at Cambridge Café on the weekends.

Open 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekends, Cambridge Café and Sandburg Café offer multiple service lines with options changing daily.

Students have access to fresh, hot meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in Palm Gardens (Sandburg Hall) and Cambridge Café GET through our GET mobile ordering platform.  Scaled down from our full-service cafeteria options, this service focuses on customizable, made-to-order, simply prepared foods that provide students with a convenient, plan-ahead way of ordering.  GET lets students know when their meal will be ready, so waiting in line is minimized.  Because efficiency and simplicity are required for this service, options for mobile ordering are limited in comparison with our walk-up locations.

  • Palm Gardens & Cambridge Café GET
    • Weekdays 8 to 10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m.
    • Weekends 3 p.m. – 7 p.m.

Meal plan holders have access to discounted menus at three restaurants in the Student Union (The Flour Shop, Pacific Wraps, Pizza Presto).  All these restaurants provide options to get customized meals, and there are more dining locations to explore both on and off campus that accept your meal plan.
