The new Dining Commons is dedicated to bringing the community together around meals and combines the traditions and intimacy of the Mount Holyoke residential experience with the choice, convenience, expanded hours, and networking opportunities created by centralization of resources. The Dining Commons features nine stations — Breakfast All Day, Comfort, Global, Grill, Made to Order, Baraka, L'Chaim, Harvest, and Wok. Vegetarian and vegan options are available at every meal. In addition, Mount Holyoke also provides for the dietary needs of observant Jews and observant Muslims with kosher cuisine in L-Chaim and halal cuisine in Baraka. The wide variety of menu options includes food being cooked to order and made from scratch.
On Saturday evening join us for our Family and Friends Weekend Gracious Dinner, which features sustainable and locally-grown menu items. Tickets can be purchased at the Welcome Center in Blanchard Hall and at the Dining Commons.
