The Doll House is a quick-stop outpost where you can purchase food and beverages with your dining dollars. Get some extra zzz’s and grab any of these breakfast items to start your day: coffee, tea, fresh fruit, yogurt parfait, hard-boiled eggs, bagels, and breakfast pastries. Mid-day snack options include Italian ices, gelato, Kettle chips, gluten-free brownies, and Pioneer hot dogs with a variety of toppings. When you’re not in a rush, grab a seat at the picnic tables for a relaxing break on Riggs Lawn.

Relax in the library during study breaks in the cozy atmosphere of the Bleeker Street Café. The menu features: freshly made egg sandwiches, a daily variety of paninis, seasonal gourmet soups, salads, sushi, fruit cups, and coffee. Hot-off-the-press paninis are boxed up with a piece of fruit to complement your meal. The Bleeker Street Café has seating available Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Student demand for Tex-Mex cuisine on campus has been answered with Twisted Taco in Hillwood. “I am happily surprised with the Twisted Taco,” said senior Ava-Miranda Stone.

A food service worker said, “the meats are freshly cooked each morning and you can definitely tell!” They offer burritos, homemade salsas, guacamole, nachos, tacos, and quesadillas. Most everyone loves Mexican cuisine and now you can satisfy your craving right on campus, Monday through Thursday beginning at 11:30 a.m., and open late until 11 p.m.

For those stuck at the far-end of campus, you no longer have to depend on vending machines for a meal. The Pioneer Wagon Food Truck offers snacks and protein bars, hot breakfast sandwiches and pastries, grilled items, signature sandwiches, pizza, salads, yogurt, and beverages. The food truck makes its way around to Lorber Hall, Pratt, and the Fine Arts Center, Monday through Thursday at 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Overall, Post has made a tremendous effort in listening to your wants and needs and we believe they have successfully fulfilled them. Next time you’re scrambling for a bite to eat, try something new at one of these campus eateries.
Nutritionists’ Picks:
● Hard-boiled eggs, fruit, and the yogurt parfait are sensible bites at the Doll House.
● Chicken pesto panini, egg sandwich, and brown rice sushi are tasty choices at the Bleeker Street Cafe.
● At the Twisted Taco, build-your-own taco, burrito, quesadilla,
or salad. Be sure to include your protein and vegetables, but watch your toppings! Chips with salsa or guacamole make for a great side.
● Hummus, string cheese, sandwiches, and salads are our go-tos at the Wagon. Grab a PowerBar for quick fuel if there’s no time for a meal.
