Tartan Dining

You’re running quickly from your biology lab to your art history class, and you need a hot cup of coffee. Or you need a place to study while you enjoy a vegetarian pizza.

Edinboro University’s new dining options will feature these traditional culinary experience. However, with a new academic year comes a new dining provider and expanded options for all your food and beverage needs.

Aramark Food Service is set to offer Tartan Dining for the Edinboro University campus this summer. Starting June 1, the new dining-service provider will present customary meal options with a blend of choices for the allergy-cautious, vegetarian and vegan diners and locally-sourced food.

New this year: Meal zones have been eliminated, giving students an opportunity to use their meal plans up to six times each day.

As we transition to a pre-COVID dining program, Tartan Dining will offer new meal plans and retail brands, exciting special events and the following dining stations.

In the Celtic Court, located right inside the Scotland Road entrance of the Pogue Student Center, we will continue to offer a traditional home style diner experience through the renovated MacCato’s Counter dining experience. You can also select traditional sandwiches and chicken tenders from Tenders Love and Chicken or opt for the international flavors of Bento Sushi cuisine.

In Van Houten Marketplace, not only can students and employees enjoy new dining experiences from a wide array of stations, but we can also enjoy new experiences such as dining theme nights, chef tables and culinary classes. Food trucks and guests restaurants will also transport you from college dining to a metropolitan culinary experience.

Hungry guests can choose from the Greens & Grains salad and grain bar, Under the Hood grille, Nonna’s Kitchen for pizza and pasta, Simmer & Thyme soup bar, True Balance – dedicated to those with food allergies, Local Harvest for fresh and local offerings, an ever-changing menu at Restaurant Rotation, Jumping Greens for vegan and vegetarian options and Keystone Bakery, Co. for your fresh-baked delights.

In the Cyber Café – just behind the Scot Cinema movie theater – students can grab that quick cup of coffee or a baked good from Crafted by Commonplace Coffee. For lunch, guests can swing by Butter and Honey for soups and sandwiches.

Plans are in the works for a specialty Edinboro University coffee blend through Crafted by Commonplace.

If you’re in need of a quick snack or drink in between classes in and around Ross Hall, swing by POD Express (Provisions on Demand) for a quick, convenient solution.

All meal plan information for residential students, commuter and off-campus students and graduate students will be available at www.edinboro.campusdish.com.

On the website, students can also sign up for an email newsletter, which will feature a kick off message, health and wellness information and tips for healthy living during Finals Week.
