Dining at Lyme

Meet and Eat

The Lyme Café is a hub for meeting and eating. In addition to offering many fresh and healthy options to satisfy your craving, you’ll also find students and faculty continuing conversations from class in our warm and sunny café which is located right in the center of our campus. The meal plans offered at Lyme Academy, allow you to dine at the Lyme Café Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Options for Everyone

We may be small but our offerings are large. Our chef is committed to using fresh ingredients and offers allergy-free, vegan, or vegetarian food options. Daily options include a changing entrée, soup, salad bar, hot and cold sandwiches, drinks, snacks, and ice cream. If that’s not what you’re looking for, pop in and grab a Starbucks coffee and fresh goodie from our bakery counter. You’ll find all these selections at your fingertips to help get you through the day. We’ll keep you nourished so you can be your best creative self both in and out of the studio.
