UniCafe Foodvan – best food in your backyard!

Hungry? UniCafe Kaivopiha too far away? Don’t worry – we’re bringing UniCafe to you.

Foodvan will go on summer break Thu 16.7.

Foodvan has been rolling since spring, and we’ve received a great deal of positive feedback. However it’s now time for our mobile restaurant to go on a summer break – Foodvan will be in operation for the last time on Wednesday, and begins its break on Thursday the 16th of July.

No need to worry though – UniCafe Kaivopiha is open and serving our customers all summer Mon-Fri 11:00-15:00! You can either enjoy a warm meal in the restaurant, or grab a pre-cooled take away meal to go. Meals include a salad, bread, and a drink.

Here’s how it works

Our hardworking courier will pack your food on the van and drive it to a pickup location near you. You’ll find the Foodvan’s schedule and stops on this page. All you have to do is grab your payment card and be there, or be square!

  • Show up early at your preferred pickup location.
  • Remember to leave at least a metre of empty space between yourself and the next customer to ensure everyone’s safety.
  • We accept only card payments.
  • Please show your student ID to enjoy our student prices.
  • Pick up your meal after paying. Ask for a bag if you need one – but please pack your items yourself to ensure a quick and swift shopping experience to all.
  • Even though you might desire a meal more than anything, please do not join the queue and instead stay home if you are experiencing any signs of a flu or cold.

The Foodvan take away meal includes a ready-packed, cold meal and a fruit of your choice.

You can find the menu for Foodvan below.
