Everyday, dozens of students from St. Robert School go to The City Market, a local café chain. Many people enjoy the delicious bakery items sold there, especially the older students as it gives them time to get together after school. This restaurant is more than just a café; it’s a second campus for students at St. Robert School.

The City Market, more frequently referred to as City Market, happens to be right across the street from St. Robert School, so many students go there everyday; this café serves many bakery items. A favorite treat of many is the cinnamon rolls. They have a wide selection of meals as well, from flatbread pizza to salad.

Students go to City Market for a variety of reasons in addition to the tasty treats. One reason to trek across the street is to do homework, and since there is free WIFI, it is good place to study with treat on the side.
