What Students Are Saying

4.11 Average Rating
The food is amazing, and obviously made with care. The students at COA make the food, serve the food, and probably help plant it too (the college owns two farms). It's some of the best food I've ever had, and I love how they're so conscious of other people's preferences (There are always vegan options and more. Certainly, COA is a college full of choices and freedom!).

The food is excellent and very vegetarian and vegan friendly. Most of the produce comes from the school's farm and other local farmers as well!

This is the place to be a vegan if you're into that. Just saying it is sooo easy. the food is organic, with vegan, gluten-free and vegetarian options. I consider myself a carnivore, and the food here is great even for meat loves like me. We just had a BBQ here with pulled pork and it was delicious.

The cafeteria serves some of the best college food in the country, enough said. They take pride in their constant omnivore, vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options.
Emmanuel from Burlington, VT
Vegan, veg, gluten-free friendly. Typically pretty tasty food, much of which is sourced locally or even from the school's organic farm. Can be a bit pricey, but the grocery store (and a small natural foods store) is not far away in town.
