All-You-Care-To-Eat Dining

Our hand-made pizza station features a variety of selections for lunch and dinner. Daily pizza creations and more.

We serve Northeast Family Farms hand-formed, freshly-ground chuck burgers, hormone and antibiotic-free chicken combined with all of your grill favorites. 

The Mongolian grill is our celebration of Asian cuisine. One of our most popular stations, it commands center stage with a sizzling array of regional favorites and ethnic specialties. Choose from rice or noodles, meat, seafood, vegetables, choose your own sauce and our chefs will turn your creation into a delicious meal.

At the Kosher station, Jewish tradition and culture will be celebrated daily in the food that is prepared and presented. Under the supervision of Rabbi David Leipziger, we present ashkenazi and sefardic delicacies from Jewish tables across the ages at holidays, rituals, festivals and in everyday meals.

Our salad bar offers many options for dining at lunch and dinner.  The focus is on local produce serving vegetables from local farms including Wesleyan's student run Long Lane Farm.  You will find all of the ingredients to make your own salad, or try one of our delicious composed salads.

Memorable bowls of soup made with the freshest ingredients from stock to garnish.

Wesleyan University is the winner of the 2012 "Most Vegan Friendly College" title.  More than just legumes, rice and tofu, our vegan and vegetarian selections will be as varied as the world's cultures.

Monday - Friday specials like our popular pastrami reuben on rye bread.  You can also have us build your own custom sandwich or wrap with a large variety of meats, cheese, and toppings accompanied by coleslaw, potato chips and a dill pickle.

One of the best thing about our weekend brunch is the made-to-order omelet station.  Serving cage free whole eggs or egg whites, a variety of vegetables, meats and cheeses.
