The Jesuit High School cafeteria, originally built in 1953 and last updated in 1983, was renovated the summer of 2021 with work that included a new terrazzo floor topping, banquette seating, new ceiling, glass tile, ceramic tile and brick veneer around the perimeter. Crews also restored the wooden windows that face the courtyard and removed the metal grating to allow for more sunlight to enter the facility.

Interior demolition began as soon as the school dismissed students in May for summer break. Through careful planning and execution, the cafeteria reopened just in time for their return in August.
