Pane di Vita is a café restaurant with a casual Italian theme. Upon the completion of the new school building “Crosslight”, Baiko Gakuin University Co-op were asked by the university to open a restaurant that would be accessible not only to students and faculty, but also to the local community. With a menu and atmosphere unlike any other cafeteria, the restaurant offers freshly baked bread in the morning, lunch plates, pasta and curry on a weekly basis, and an a la carte menu for dinner in the evening.

Since the opening of Pane di Vita, we have seen students enjoying coffee and cake while chatting or studying between classes, professors relaxing in between their research, and local residents visiting the restaurant on Saturdays. Pane di Vita truly creates a new space where people can relax on campus. The restaurant is open until 21.00 on weekdays and 19.00 on Saturdays, making it a popular place for social gatherings.

We will continue to develop the menu and put our best effort in the management of the restaurant. We hope that many co-op members will participate in the process in order to make the restaurant a place loved by everyone.
