D’Amico & Sons Café

D’Amico & Sons cafe, located on the first floor of the McNamara Alumni Center, is a great spot for a light breakfast or lunch when visiting the University of Minnesota. The restaurant offers homemade pizzas, gourmet sandwiches, innovative salads and pastas, breads and desserts. It is fashioned after D'Amico's other restaurants in the Twin Cities by the same name and known for "heavenly good food created from scratch using fresh natural ingredients." The cafe offers seating for 110 people and an adjacent landscaped patio has seating for 90 people.

The café is available for drop-off service within the McNamara Alumni Center or delivery to University of Minnesota Minneapolis campus locations or the surrounding area. The café may also provide drop-off service to any of our first floor meeting rooms between the hours of 8 am and 2 pm Monday through Friday.

The cafe is available to rent for private events anytime on the weekends or after 3:00 pm on weekdays. Called University Hall when used as a private event space, the restaurant's floor to ceiling windows and adjacent landscaped patio make it a lovely setting for small wedding receptions.
