What’s For Dinner?
It’s one of students' top concerns: How’s the food? After all, all that studying makes you hungry!
At the Mount, we pride ourselves on offering a variety of dining options that our students actually want to eat. Our Dining Services partner, Parkhurst Dining, emphasizes the importance of using fresh, local ingredients so you know that you’re always eating quality foods that are good for you and the environment. Variety, flexibility, and ice cream: the three things we value most when it comes to Dining Services.
Where to Grab a Bite to Eat on Campus
The View Dining Hall
Our main dining hall, this is the place to meet up with friends and get a meal. Choose from regular favorites like the deli, salad, pizza, and grill bars or expand your palate at Action and Entree stations, which feature new recipes every night. Don’t forget to top it off with a trip to the dessert bar or our six rotating varieties of hard and soft ice creams. Oh yeah, and it overlooks the Hudson River.
The Aquinas Cafe
Located conveniently in the center of Aquinas Hall, our main academic building, this is the place to stop in between classes for a quick to-go sandwich, pastry, and of course, Starbucks.
The Dominican Center Cafe
Sometimes, you just get hungry while studying or don’t want to walk down to Aquinas for a full meal. No problem - the Dominican Center Cafe, located on the ground floor of our library, offers a salad bar, to-go items, made-to-order daily specials like wraps and sandwiches, and a variety of drinks, including coffee, tea, and make-your-own milkshakes.
Henry’s Courtside Cafe
The perfect spot for a late night snack, Henry’s offers a convenient location on the east end of campus. Best known for their specialty sandwiches and fried favorites (Mac Bites and mozzarella sticks galore), they also offer made-to-order breakfast sandwiches and daily soup and pasta specials.
If you have any dietary restrictions, please do not hesitate to let us know! We are happy to accommodate you and make sure there are always options for you. Anyone with dietary restrictions is invited to contact the General Manager, Steve Andrade, to ensure that your needs are met.
Just Like Mom Made
Have a family recipe that you’re dying to get a taste of? Talk to our General Manager, Steve, and he’ll put it on the menu and name it after your relative! Imagine being able to have Grandma’s Chicken Soup or Aunt Betty’s Eggplant Parm in your college’s dining hall!
Eating Off Campus
Our on-campus eateries are great, but sometimes, you just need to get off campus and enjoy some variety. Here’s a list of some of our favorite local spots!
