More than an on-site restaurant that links the buildings on the IALR campus and CyberPark residents, the Megabytes Café serves as the central point of activity for numerous businesses, residents, visitors and guests. Along with a menu suitable for any palette and a variety of dietary options, the café includes a luncheon buffet and salad bar as well as deli and pizza specials. A breakfast menu is also available until 10:30 a.m.

A recent renovation of the facility culminated with a May 16 celebration for frequent visitors and guests. The renovation included installation of three large TV’s showing sports and current events, new tables and chairs, booth seating, and a Coke machine that offers 85 different drink options. The bright green, purple, and blue atmosphere creates a welcoming environment for a diverse array of customers. People from local businesses, like Goodyear, EBI, Ikea, EIT and Jarrett Welding, along with students, researchers, employees, and retirees enjoy the daily menu offerings.

IALR partners with Sodexo, the leading provider of food services in the United States, to operate Megabytes as well as the IALR’s in-house catering service for events hosted at the facility. On-site dining at Megabytes enhances the opportunity for the community to enjoy the services of IALR on a regular basis, while networking with employees from the surrounding community and meet national and international visitors. Don’t be surprised to see a tour group with industrial prospects and local economic developers who love showcasing the facility to prospects who envision their company and employees in the region.

The daily menu can be viewed at or on the Megabytes’ Facebook page. Takeout and gift certificates are available. The café is open Monday - Friday 7:30am-1:30pm.
