What Students Are Saying

3.59 Average Rating
Food is really good too, considering it's buffet style. Pizza and ice cream everyday is a must!
Anthony from Morris, MN
There are a few different dining options in campus aside from the main dining hall. We have a small coffee stand called Higbies and the Turtle Mountain Cafe. No matter where you eat, the food is good. Morris has been awarded many times for the variety and the Vegetarian/Vegan friendly options offered at every meal.

There are a few options for on-campus food. The dining hall has a variety of foods and you can also have a custom stir-fry/omelette made. The TMC is a slightly more expensive choice since it is higher quality but definitely worth it if you want a quick meal while you study! Higbies is the coffee shop and it has a selection of Caribou coffee as well as a constantly changing selection of various candies. The C-Store is for late-night munchies and it is quite overpriced and you are probably better off stocking up on food from Shopko or the Willy's in town if you want to save a few bucks.
Xavier from Sartell, MN
I absolutely love the food choices here! First off you have Turtle Mountain Cafe which is a great little 'restaurant' but very affordable! Like every eating facility on campus it is very vegetarian friendly and their veggie burgers are delicious! They also have weekly specials and traditions, Stir-Friday and Tuscan-Tuesday have got to be my favorite!
Food Services is a great place as well, the variety is crazy and once you pay it is buffet style which I personally love.
There is also Higbies which is a little coffee shop (affiliated with Caribou Coffee) that sells awesome drinks and fresh baked goods (scones, bars, muffins etc).
The C-Store is great for late night snacks as they are open until Midnight, and sometimes 2 a.m.! Its basically kind of like a gas station but just for food and necessities :)
Jordan from Morris, MN
It depends on the day really. In general, food on the weekends is really iffy. There are some meals that food service has nailed and that are delicious. Other times, the selection leaves many of us wondering what were they thinking?! The desserts are continuously delicious though. :)
Also, as a vegetarian, I think food service does a pretty good job of serving to people with special diets. I can always find something to eat.

The food in the dining hall isn't the best in the world, but there's a restaurant on campus, and a few more in town, including a Subway. The campus favorite is Don's Cafe, which has amazing burgers and fantastic toast if you ever go there for breakfast. Yes I said toast, it's so good, people often request their burgers without buns, and with toast instead. It's crazy!
