Greenway Restaurant

Greenway_diningroom_webCPCC’s Greenway Restaurant opened February 2012 in the Philip L. Van Every Culinary Arts Center on our Central Campus. If you’re looking for more upscale fare, we encourage you to visit Greenway, where CPCC culinary students will prepare and serve you a three-course lunch that is both satisfying and flavorful. And while the venue’s hours of operation are limited to accommodate our culinary students’ academic schedules, you will not be disappointed with its quality or customer service.
