Spring 2023 Elevation Restaurant Happenings

Welcome to Elevation Restaurant at Cascade Culinary Institute! Offerings to the community vary by the academic term, as all meals are tied to classes.  We look forward to seeing you.

Note that March 17, 2023 was the final Bakery Kiosk morning for the 2022-23 COCC academic year. It will be back Fall 2023!
