Welcome to Awakenings

With a long history of serving the CIIS Mission campus, Awakenings provides a space for students to decompress and connect in-between classes.  Reflecting the greater intention of the school, the cafe makes an effort to serve wholesome and delicious food and drinks at reasonable prices.  

Located on the third floor, next to Namaste Hall, the Awakenings community space is always open to students and staff.

Our Menu

Beginning Spring 2017,

Indian Bento is owned and operated by Pashmina. We think her story is worth reading. Click Here.
