    2. How I would say this is, “What do you have for lunch? Where will you eat, the cafeteria, or outside?” Here is a less complex one. “What’s your lunch? Where are you going to eat? The cafeteria, or outside?” How you said it isn’t very natural. It’s very awkward phrasing. “will you eat at cafeteria” should be “Will you eat at the cafeteria?” or “Will you eat in the cafeteria?” It’s your preference. Hopefully this helped!

"We will not use the cafeteria as follows." 1. A fighting area. 2. A sleeping area.
