About the CIA Bakery Café

The San Antonio Express-News named the CIA Bakery Café as one of its ‘Must-Try Eats’!

The CIA Bakery Café offers a variety of light café fare including soups, salads, and sandwiches, and features a selection of classic and contemporary pastries and baked goods. Complete with a large picture window, the CIA Bakery Café overlooks the college’s teaching kitchen and allows guests to watch both our students as well as food enthusiasts in action as they learn the CIA’s secrets of success in our teaching kitchens.

Led by Chef Alain Dubernard CMB CHE, who spent six years as a baking and pastry instructor as well as an associate dean for Baking and Pastry at The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, the CIA Bakery Café located at the historic Pearl offers San Antonio residents the first opportunity to enjoy a meal or a snack from the world’s premier culinary college.
