Is a full-service, state-of-the-art quick order grill with hot and cold food choices, daily and weekly specials, soup, salad and specialty coffee bars.

At the beginning of October 2015, as part of the effort by MCC to provide quality water usage for our entire College community we provided several PUR brand point-of-use NSF 42/53 certified faucet filters at sinks in the Bear Bistro and assured that the soda fountain and coffee bar water was filtered. During the winter holiday break the Bear Bistro was provided with a filtration system that filters ALL of the water used by the Bistro. Crystal Quest® provided the system which is specifically formulated to remove lead and other heavy metals along with a variety of other contaminants. The system is NSF 42/53 certified. The filtration system was activated on January 4, 2016.
