Healthy Eating

Providing you with healthy options is something your dining team proudly does every day. We help you select delicious, nutritious and satisfying meals, snacks and desserts by highlighting well-balanced menu choices and providing nutritional information and tips to help you make choices that fit your needs.

Food Allergies

We take pride in serving you wholesome ingredients, preparing recipes accurately and providing nutritional analysis and ingredient statements through our online menus and nutrition calculator. From our general manager to our front line servers, we work carefully to address food allergies or other special dietary needs.

The Bison Cafè is a nut-free dining location. We do not prepare, serve or make available any item with nuts of any kind for dining room guests. We do, however, purchase food items from suppliers that may produce those items in facilities that also produce items containing nuts.

We would like to meet one-on-one with anyone who has individual dining needs to ensure that your dining experience is safe, delicious, and social. If you have a food allergy/special diet concern, please call or send us a note using the feedback form.

Simple Servings

Simple Servings is our new resident dining option, providing safe and appetizing food choices “ready to go” for our customers with food allergies, gluten intolerance, or those who prefer plain and simple foods. The Simple Servings station does not offer foods made with the FDA most-common allergens of peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, wheat, soy, milk products, and eggs.  All foods offered will be made without gluten-containing ingredients.   Simple Servings staff members are carefully trained to avoid cross-contamination of their menu items.  Separate equipment, storage areas, utensils and preparation areas minimize, but do not totally eliminate, the chances of gluten and allergens in our Simple Servings foods. 

 Simple Servings: Providing convenient, delicious, and secure options.  Focus on your future, not your food allergy.
