Crimson Café

CIC 120

The Crimson Café is operated by Country Gentleman Restaurant and Catering, which holds the food service contract for WSU Tri-Cities. This locally owned business also has a restaurant in Kennewick, cafeterias at Columbia Basin College and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, and an established catering service

Country Gentleman opened the Crimson Café in April 2012. The Crimson Café is located in the Consolidated Information Center, in the commercial kitchen located in the commons area outside CIC Room 120.

The food service contract includes an exclusive catering component. All food service using University funds — from cookie trays to sit-down meals — either needs to be provided by Country Gentleman or have approval from Country Gentleman to purchase outside food.  This catering contract also applies to any outside organizations that hold events at WSU Tri-Cities.
