    good luck. it has improved but the vegetarian options are awful. i can't imagine having a serious food allergy here. they will lie to you. on days where there are perspective students food will be much better. dining hall hours are a joke. if you miss dinner on a friday you will need to wait until the morning to be disappointed by the food.

    Our dining services aren't spectacular honestly, but the local food and dining in Saranac Lake (15-20 mins away) is amazing! There are several restaurants that offer affordable, local, organic food that is absolutely delicious. The natural food store in town (Nori's has the hook up). Some students don't mind the dining hall food at all (I have been called a food snob), so you should check it out at least -- you might think it's just fine. But if you don't like it, don't worry -- good food is not far away!

    As stated before, make friends with the baking students and their chefs and they will feed you crazy well! Otherwise, the culinary kids don't usually share their amazing food (because there's so little of it to go around) and the food in the dining hall is, to be honest, quite a bit less than stellar. Be sure to ask mom and dad for plenty of care packages, snack food goes quick up here!

    The food could upgrade for sure. You would think at a culinary college there would be awesome food, but it definitely lacks flavor. Next year I will be cooking most of my and my friends meals with pleasure.
