Cafe 212 is a dining location in Lerner Hall. Its name is pronounced "two-one-two", not "two-twelve" as first-years insist on calling it for their first few weeks. It's named "two-one-two" to match the New York City area code of the same numbering. Cafe 212 serves made-to-order sandwiches, wraps, and salads as well as soup and pastries. Cafe East is located in the same space.
Until 2003, Cafe 212 featured booths, which were then replaced with the movable tables and chairs now visible. The effect was to relieve some of the cramped-ness of the space while adding additional seats.
