The Aaimpa' Café

The Aaimpa' Café

The Aaimpa' ("a place to eat") Café features a variety of appetizers, entrées, children’s meals and desserts. In addition to modern American favorites, you can taste traditional American Indian food like fry bread; buffalo burgers and chili; Indian tacos; pashofa, a traditional Chickasaw corn soup; or grape dumplings, a classic dessert. Our campus Spiral Garden provides vegetables for many of our menu items, so each dish is fresh and authentic. We welcome the opportunity to share the food of our people with you!

 

 

Group dining is available. Please place orders for group meals at least 48 hours in advance by calling 580-622-7130 and asking to speak to a member of our Special Events staff.
