College food generally has a bad rap. But, like everything else at Marlboro, we do things a little differently. A lot of universities have food courts and popular chains along with their cafeteria options, but Marlboro has one dining hall and one café. Most meals at Marlboro have a bit of home cookin' to them. There are rarely meals with any packaging or plastic. Each dish is prepared with love and often will taste like it's right out of the oven. You won't find that at other colleges. Though generally good and sometimes even yummy, there a number of Marlboro dishes, made with love as they may be, that stand out as not so great. Avoid "Vegan Surprise" and "Tofu Yummy."
For vegetarians, there is usually a large variety of options compared with other schools, though vegans will find it a little harder to construct a full meal. When the Dining Hall is not sufficient or a meal time is missed due to class or sleeping in, the café in the Campus Center is always a sweet spot. It has made-to-order dishes that are consistently good, and the prices are very reasonable. Imagine meals at Marlboro as dinnertime for a family of 300. Everyone eats together.
