When referring to them by their common name, you must uppercase. It's surprising to find "student cafeteria" on a building because that's the building's title, and as such, the words should start with uppercase letters. It is the name of a certain building (Vancouver City Hall).
However, when discussing the facility itself, you should use lowercase because it is not a proper noun. The student cafeteria at Vancouver City Hall is a specific location within the building where students can get food and drinks. Lowercase lettering is used to identify many different locations within buildings. For example, the employee cafeteria is usually located on the first floor of the building while the visitor's entrance is on the second floor.
Capitalization is also important when referring to organizations or businesses that operate canteens or cafés. The Student Union Building at the University of British Columbia is known as UBCSU in short, and its cafeteria is called SUB. Similarly, the Bay Cafe located near Stanley Park is known as the Bay Cafe in short, and its menu offers items such as sandwiches, salads, and desserts.
These are just some examples; there are many more cases where capitalization is necessary in describing public facilities or private businesses that provide meals. Hopefully, this guide has helped you understand how to properly capitalize names of public institutions and private businesses.
Names of Buildings and Rooms The official names of buildings should not be capitalized. In formal university publications, use the official names of campus buildings. Refer to the list of University Building Names. If you must include the building number, include it in parenthesis after the building name and spell out and uppercase "Building." for example, (University Hall).
The word "building" is used as a noun. Therefore, it requires no capital letter. However, unless referring to a specific building on campus or another formal publication, using the term "buildings" instead of "building" is acceptable. For example, if you are writing about several buildings on campus, use the word "buildings" rather than "building."
In informal writings such as Facebook posts, Twitter messages, and email, it is acceptable to use small letters without a capital first letter for words that are not proper names. For example, you could say "I go to school btwn minn and st paul" rather than "I go to school between minn and st paul".
Words that begin with a vowel sound can be abbreviated. For example, you can write "bus driver" rather than "bud" and get the same meaning. But sometimes people shorten words that start with a consonant sound.
Proper nouns should be capitalized. To put it another way, uppercase the names of persons, places, and objects. For example, we don't capitalize the word "bridge" until it begins a sentence, but Brooklyn Bridge must be capitalized because it is the name of a specific bridge.
Lowercase names of locations not already capitalized (such as Washington, D.C., or New York City), unless they are proper nouns (names of people or places). For example, don't write about "the Washington Bridge" or "the Brooklyn Bridge"; say "the George Washington Bridge" or "the Brooklyn Bridge".
Capitalize titles such as Mr. , Mrs. , Miss, Dr. , Rev. , and Prof. After all initial letters of words in titles are capitalized, other letters within the title are lowercased.
Do not capitalize common nouns which are not proper nouns (such as a river or an avenue). For example, don't write about "the Ohio River" or "the Brooklyn Avenue", but rather say "the Ohio River" or "the Brooklyn Avenue".
Do not capitalize adjectives or adverbs used as part of a proper noun's definition, example, or location description. For example, don't write about "a Brooklyn Bridge" or "the tall man", but rather say "a Brooklyn Bridge" or "the tall man".
When a group is formed and a name is given to it, it should be capitalized. Organizations, institutions, shops, corporations, teams, political parties, and government entities should all have their names capitalized. Unless they are part of the name, do not uppercase terms like hospital, high school, church, etc.
Hospitals usually have their own independent identity and should be capitalized. Hospital buildings may or may not have a capital "H" but they always start with a capital letter. If there is no such thing as a free lunch, then why would anyone go into business for themselves by opening a restaurant? The answer is that they wouldn't. Restaurants are profitable businesses that offer people something they want or need. Although they may use the word "cafe" in their title, they probably don't serve only coffee; maybe tea, snacks, etc.
Restaurants come in two main types: full service and fast food. Full-service restaurants provide most, if not all, of the food on the menu. They usually have a more casual atmosphere than fast food places and often have a bar or lounge where customers can drink alcohol. Fast food restaurants are similar to quick meals restaurants which also serve beer and wine but not liquor. All you need to make delicious French fries is oil and potatoes! That's it! You don't need an orchestra to play music when you eat French fries, you just need some paper towels and a garbage can next to the fryer.
