The food

The food at Messiah College

With your meal plan, you’ll have access to Lottie Nelson, a dining hall where you’ll find plenty of make-your-own options, hot and nutritious meals three times a day, carefully selected meals and ingredients for special dietary needs and all the college staples like salad, cereal and ice cream. Plus, Lottie hosts all kinds of special nights—clam bakes, holiday dinners and free midnight pancakes during finals!

You can also use your Dining Dollars at The Falcon, a restaurant open for breakfast and lunch that serves salads, paninis, soups, rice bowls and weekly specials. The Falcon is also a great place to grab coffee and a delicious breakfast like an egg sandwich, steel-cut oatmeal or a bagel before chapel.

Late into the night, the Union Café serves up all kinds of goodies for you and your friends. You might share a pizza there while enjoying a free concert or stop for a smoothie before you head back to your room in the evening.

In between classes you’ll find Café Diem in the library to be a cozy spot to grab a cup of Sun Coffee Roasters coffee or tea and maybe a pastry…just a little snack to help you get through your busy days!

You certainly shouldn't choose a college just because of the food but let’s face it—knowing you’ll have access to a variety of healthy, delicious food options is pretty appealing!
