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 and sometimes bananas. The room has white brick walls, yellow tile floor, and sometimes posters.


Main Gameplay

Multiple food items can be found here, like the BSODA and the Energy Flavored Zesty Bar and some lunches are sitting on the tables. Multiple Vending Machines are also commonly found here, where the Player can purchase both items for a quarter. Sometimes, this location will contain an elevator.

Along with other special locations (except the Playground), the Cafeteria is 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 and Baldi's Basics Birthday Bash, the Cafeteria is one of the three special areas in the original Schoolhouse, the other two are Gotta Sweep's Closet and Outdoor Areas. It is also 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. There are also two "Recycle food" posters each next to the swinging door and a plant next to the table with a Zesty Bar. The Cafeteria 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. When the Player blows the cake's candle, the Schoolhouse will get dark and two entrances to the Glitched School will be exposed from each side of Cafeteria.
  • In Baldi's Basics Kickstarter Exclusive Demo, the Cafeteria is first introduced with reduced height of the room to the same as every other area.


  • 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.[1]
  • In a future update of Baldi's Basics Plus, the food items will spawn in this location again as well.[2]

  2. "Y'know I kind of forgot about the old window texture! I definitely might bring that back at some point. I'll also definitely bring back ambient noises and cafeteria items at some point. Not sure about the other stuff." - mystman12. August 29, 2020. Twitter
