Café Lab

Students in Adventure Kids Day Camp, Summer Lab on Stage or Summer School (Grade 3 and above) may purchase lunch from Café Lab, the Laboratory Schools' cafeteria. Bag-lunch options are also available for Summer School Nursery through Second grade and Adventure Kids on field trip days. For more information, please contact Cafe Lab at 773-702-0403 or

Children may also bring lunch, snacks and drinks beginning the first day. Please pack foods that do not require refrigeration. Snacks will be provided for Nursery and Kindergarten classes as well as for Adventure Kids Day Camp, Sports Camp and Late Day enrollees.

Café Lab menus are peanut and tree nut free; given the potential severity of peanut/tree nut allergies amongst the school-aged population, Summer Lab, reserves the right to ask that you not send certain foods with your child for the life safety of our students.
