About the Clist Café

The Clist Café, located inside the Culinary Institute of the South, serves a multipurpose role as both a grab-and-go café for the general public and as a classroom for culinary and hospitality students. The café offers a variety of freshly made breads and pastries – baked by students onsite – along with coffee, teas and more. In addition, lunch specials ranging from sandwiches and salads are offered daily. The Café allows students learn what it’s like to operate a small business while developing exceptional management and customer service skills. The Clist Café is named for donors and longtime Technical College of the Lowcountry advocates Liz and Todd Clist of Hilton Head Island.
