The South Park Elementary cafeteria is a common location within South Park Elementary for many scenes and is frequently where an episode will begin. It first appears in the Season One episode, "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe".


In earlier seasons, the cafeteria was seen as the place where Chef would interact with the boys often to discuss life questions the children did not understand.

The cafeteria, along with the playground, is now seen as the main meeting place where the students discuss their own problems in life.

  • Normally, the cafeteria tables only hold up to 4 kids on each side. However, in "Elementary School Musical", 5 boys sit on each side of the table where the boys sit.
  • "The List" is the first episode to show the cafeteria after Chef's death in "The Return of Chef".
