The Cafeteria is a special location from Here School of Baldi's Basics.


The Cafeteria is a large rectangular room that has tables with floating trays of food. The room has grey brick walls while some walls have posters about recycling food attached on. While most of the food is just for show, some items are able to be obtained by the Player such as the Energy Flavored Zesty Bar and BSODA.


Main Gameplay

This is where multiple food items can be found, like BSODA and the Energy Flavored Zesty Bar and some lunches on the tables. A multiple amount of Vending Machines are also commonly found, where the Player can purchase both items.

Along with other special locations (except the Playground), the Cafeteria is still part of the hallways, so if the Principal of the Thing catches the Player breaking any rule in the Cafeteria, they will still receive detention.

Other Appearances

  • In Baldi's Basics Classic, the Cafeteria is the only special area in the game as well as Arts and Crafters' spawn location. The Cafeteria seems larger, and the ceiling appears to be a black void. A BSODA Machine can be found in addition to the Energy Flavored Zesty Bar and BSODA. It is also a location where one of the four Exits are found.
  • In Baldi's Basics Birthday Bash, an enormous cake sits in the middle of the room, with a movable platform appearing in front of it when the Cafeteria exit is reached. The Cafeteria's exit only appears when the other three exits have been reached.
  • In Baldi's Basics Kickstarter Exclusive Demo, the Cafeteria is one of the three available special rooms.


  • During the development for the classic edition, there was going to be an area outside the school next to the Cafeteria that would be accessed by using a Swing Door, but it was scrapped and replaced by an Exit.
  • The quiet ambient of radio statics and school students shouting can be heard if the volume is turned up enough. It was recorded way before the classic edition's production.[1]
