3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: If the variety at Marletto's doesn't please you Tie Too among many other options are available within a short walk. I like the vegetarian options at Marletto's more often than not, and the Sodexo to-go stations have a fair amount of choices and also Naked juice which I love.

Campus Food: I've only ever eaten in the campus cafeteria once, but it was very good when I ate it. I usually go off campus to a small strip where there are plenty of small restaurants to eat. The food in the cafeteria didn't seem overly healthy, but it didn't seem like it was extremely terrible for you either, leaving it with an "okay" review.

1 College Junior

Campus Food: Expensive, unhealthy yet still tastes bad, Marletto's has inconvenient hours for students who actually have class, absolutely NO variety, the only good thing is kind employees and most people are nasty to them.

Campus Food: It's not all healthy but they are okay

4 College Junior

Campus Food: I think the variety is wide and has vegan options and there is a place to eat in every building on campus. Although not all of the food is healthy, it is accessible and pretty affordable.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

A small variety of dining options is available around the Webster campus. Marletto's Marketplace is the major dining option and has the most variety, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner along with some dessert and snack options. Another "early" option is at the Cyber Café, which is open at 8 a.m. once Emerson Library opens—great for grabbing a cup of coffee to start off a class.

Crossroads opens in time for lunch, when the University Center becomes a bustling ground for hungry students in need of a quick bite before class. The food is exceptional, especially from Crossroads, but be careful of the vendor boxed meals that are sold at the Simply to Go or in the Cyber Café; they can get soggy and look unappealing despite being in the refrigerator for a few hours. Some food from Marletto's can also be a bit greasy, depending on the kind of food set out, like pizza or food containing meat. For a few cents more, drinks can be made with soy or fat-free milk. Marletto's also has options especially made for vegans and vegetarians, including a "watch and eat" area where a chef can create your own wrap. They are all good places to consider when you are short on time and need an adequate meal in between classes.

Special Options
You can find special options at Marletto's food selection; there is a station that allows you to create your own wrap by telling the chef what you want. Some of the vendor salads at Simply to Go or in the Cyber Café are also strictly veggie. The Cyber Café also provides soy milk and fat-free options to lattes and drinks for a few cents extra.
Did You Know?
The name "Marletto's" is actually an infusion of the two halls that it lies between: Maria and Loretto.
