Dining at the Harvard Kennedy School is as diverse as the community who studies and works there. A range of hot and cold breakfast selections is available until 9:45am. Lunch service runs from 11:30am-2:30pm. Light snacks are available in the interim periods. The HKS Café has extensive seating, but you can also take lunch outside to nearby JFK Park for a lovely break in the day.
