Yes, cafeteria and not canteen. We do not dare call it a canteen when we know that a bunch of future Stephanians would be reading this article. Stephen's cafe is the best of the lot. The cafe offers various foods but the best of the lot are cheese scrambled eggs, toasts, maggi with minced chicken & croissants or dill pickle sandwiches. The food is average though and even the prices are not that low. But when you have students who wear trendy clothes and carry i-Pods and i-Phones, well, you do not care about the prices!
