The Cafeteria is a special location from the Schoolhouse and Super Schoolhouse.


The Cafeteria is a large rectangular room that has tables with floating trays of food. The room has white brick walls, yellow tile floor, and sometimes posters.


Main Gameplay

Multiple Vending Machines are also commonly found, where the Player can purchase food items which are Energy Flavored Zesty Bar and BSODA.

Along with other special locations (except the Playground), the Cafeteria is still part of the hallways, so if 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 one of the three special areas in the original Schoolhouse as well as Arts and Crafters' spawn location. The Cafeteria seems larger, and the ceiling appears to be a black void. A BSODA Machine, an Energy flavored Zesty Bar and BSODA can be found here. 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 and the current version of Baldi's Basics Plus, the Cafeteria is one of the six available special rooms, but is lacking food trays that will return soon.[1]


  • 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, according to mystman12.[2]
  • Since the Kickstarter exclusive demo, there is a lack of the food items spawning in this area, the height of the room is also the same as every other area. However, those items will spawn in the Cafeteria again in a future update.[3]
