    Food at Etown is nothing short of delicious. There is a wide variety of options available every single day, with a different main entree of lunch and dinner. From burgers to salads to the famous carrot cake Etown is known for, no student ever goes in want for food. Vegetarian and vegan options are always available. While weekends tend to consist of nothing more than brunch and leftovers, the rotating menu offers enough choices to satisfy everyone. There is a lot of seating but tables fill quickly during rush times, so it is recommended to eat at an off-time.

    Food at Elizabethtown is that of a typical college. Nothing fancy, but there are always healthy options like the salad bar and the omelet station. For those who prefer awesome desserts though, the dinging hall here is for you! Desserts never disappoint at school-- there's a self-serve ice cream station and there are always plenty of cakes and cookies to choose from. The Jays Nest, our school's quick mart/quick food stop is great for your late night snack or mid-day lunch break. It's open late so many students will spend their evenings there studying with friends or grabbing a late night quesadilla!

    Can't complain. The food is always amazing, although some people do not think so. I just wish they had healthier foods!

    The food at E-town has a reputation for being top-notch and you will not be let down. The Marketplace is open 7am-7pm and it's a buffet style dining area. There's a pasta bar, a salad bar, pizza, an entree bar that changes every day, a sandwich/wrap station, a huge desert bar, and plenty of other options. There's also the Jay's Nest which is a convenient store and cafe area where students can get snacks and order fresh food. For late night snacks, there's a food truck that drives around campus offering various meals.
