Constructed within the Burnout space station in orbit over Zham Hlar, the cafetorium was an auditorium-style cafeteria which catered to the visitors and personnel of the station. Consisting of a large central room capable of seating several hundred guest at once, the cafetorium's kitchens were able to produce food to feed all of them. Live music was found at the restaurant, such as a Devaronian holo-band.
At the height of the Clone Wars, a deadly conflict between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, the cafetorium's kitchen was headed by Chef Pappi who oversaw a serving staff of droids. During the war, a Trandoshan named Xirossk fled the station by cutting through the cafetorium after stealing a PU-36 modulator chip from the starship of the Heroes of Cularin. The heroes set out in pursuit, and they asked a number of the patrons if they had seen where Xirossk had gone. Among the Bothans, Sullustans, Humans, Wookiees, Duros, Rodians and Twi'leks patronizing the establishment, the heroes were able to glean some information as to where the criminal had gone.
