Dining Services is looking forward to welcoming students, faculty, and staff back into our cafes this semester. Please see below for our operating hours. Learn more about our Mobile Ordering Hours.

Dining venues are expected to operate normally for the Spring semester, with the exception of Simon’s Cafe, which will remain closed until further notice. Dining may alter hours or switch to grab and go for brief periods if the COVID-19 positive cases among students or staff have a significant impact on normal operational levels. We anticipate again encountering continued challenges of supply chain and vendor labor shortages this semester, which may affect our daily offerings. Students will be advised of any changes through Lafayette Today and on the dining webpage.

Catering is expected to operate as normal as possible. Menus may need to be altered due to potential supply chain and labor challenges.  We appreciate your patience and understanding, as we ask everyone to book events out as furthest as possible; at least 10 days in advance of your event date to help ensure Catering can commit to a successful event. 

Our Eco Clamshell takeout is available for to-go dining. This includes one sustainable box in Upper Farinon and Marquis; takeout meals are limited to one container. For more information on the Eco-Clamshell Program, click here.

Coming up this Spring: 

  • A Lunar New Year celebration at Upper Farinon, February 1st, 4:30pm
  • A Valentine’s Day Lunch at Marquis, February 14th, 11am
  • A “Slam Dunk” Dip Competition at Upper Farinon

Keep your eyes peeled for Smoothie specials at ECO Cafe and the return of Gilbert’s Famous Nachos!

Maintaining guest safety as one of our top priorities, we will continue to enforce rigorous safety, sanitation, and service measures. Dining is following the college’s vaccination and booster policy. 

If you haven’t done so already, get your student ID printed.
