Need a break and want to stretch your legs a bit? There are some nice places to eat at located just off campus! Here are a few:

 

Catholic University Community Cafeteria (KHG Mensa)

Choose from two daily menus served at the KHG Mensa: soup, a main vegetarian or meat dish and - depending on the meal you order - with or without a salad. Are you starving? Or just want a bite?  In addition to a normal-sized portion, you can order a small portion, if you prefer.  You can switch out the soup, salad or bread accompaniments and buy something for dessert. In the summer we offer larger salads to enjoy as a main meal.
