Grid Locale: Radiant Heart Academy, Cafeteria Plaza
Settled in a spot between the student dormitories and the main campus of Radiant Heart Academy is the green dome of the Cafeteria. This is not just a spot for attendees of the academy to get a bite to eat. It is a multistory complex that has a staff-only meeting and dining area on the top floor, stores supplies for all the school events on the middle floors, and there are even spaces in the main plaza for guest cooks and even food trucks to be able to be set up!

The main area of the cafeteria is an immense and warmly wood-panelled space that wraps around a central U-shaped area where food is brought out and set up buffet-style to choose from, going for a mix of healthy and popular, classic japanese and the newer western-influenced foods. Two of the more popular areas are the fresh Bread station, where dozens of filled rolls are dispensed fresh and hot and provided small sealable boxes to cart them around with, while the other is the Curry station, which always has something heartwarming and bubbling for someone to grab a bowl of on a cold day. Rice can of course be found at regular intervals, with bowls that allow someone to take as much as they want.

Seating arrangements vary by area in what is known as 'The Plaza', ranging from bench seats long enough to seat a dozen people from one end to the other, to the smaller booths that ring the walls for those who want something a little more private for a group of friends and a good view of the outdoors, and up on a raised area are more classic dining tables used most often by staff, older students, and occasionally a study group that has reserved a seat ahead of time.

Areas are broken up with potted flower rows and bushes, and even some small trees, allowing for this spacious area to feel a little more like it is outdoors and to give some separation and privacy, and break up some of the natural cacophony of hundreds of students eating all at once.

Next the broad front doors of the Plaza, and one of the first things that students pass by every time they enter or leave is the Student Store. Manned by upper classmen and managed by the faculty, this space is where things like gym clothes, shoes, mugs, bags and backpacks, and many RHA themed items can be bought for a student or their family, as well as a decent arrangement of slightly more expensive but good quality school supplies can be obtained. They also maintain a small 'snack stand' that has popular western treats like candy-coated chocolates, peanut butter cups, and candy bars available for those who want a quick sweet.
