Bon Appétit Locations

Bon Appetit at Reed College operates three cafes on campus, each one unique to the other with offsetting hours so students always have a variety of options from 7:30am until midnight. For added convenience and an alternative way to purchase your food we have implemented a mobile online ordering application to all three outlets.

The Transact Mobile Ordering Application is linked to all three Bon Appetit outlets and provides students with an alternative way to shop for food and groceries. Students can download the Transact Mobile Ordering app to their smartphone or tablet and search for “Reed College Dining”, enter the required campus credentials and you can place your order at any Bon Appetit location! For questions about your order students can contact the mobile ordering staff directly via zoom text at 503-517-4038. 

You can download the app for Apple or Android and sign up from your smartphone.
