Apple opens new employee cafeteria in Cupertino
CUPERTINO, Calif.—According to employee tweets and photos, Apple opened a stunning new Caffè Macs employee cafeteria at the corner of Bandley and Alves Dr. in Cupertino this past Tuesday. Located close to the company’s first campus building, Apple received approval to build at this location in early 2012, and after 2 years of work, the new cafeteria is complete.
Unlike Apple’s main employee cafeteria at their Infinite Loop complex, which visitors can enter if signed in by an Apple employee, this new cafeteria is off limits to anyone but Apple staff. In a 2012 interview with Apple’s Director of Real Estate Facilities Dan Whisenhunt, he explained that cafeteria would be a place where employees could talk freely about their work without fear of being eavesdropped upon. Caffè Macs Alves is located within walking distance of many other Apple offices in the surrounding area and on Bandley Dr.
