The chefs at Raymond Commons prepare meals from scratch and buy as much of their produce, meat, and dairy as possible from local farmers. You’ll be pleased with the results, as the food at Cate is delicious and plentiful. If traditional eggs and bacon aren’t on your breakfast menu, sample the oatmeal and granola or make yourself a waffle with fresh strawberries on top. Sandwiches make a great lunch but there’s a hot food option too, and an inviting salad bar in the center of the room. After athletics, you may need a hearty dinner, which is even tastier when you’re eating with friends. Throughout the day, there are bowls of fruit ripe for snacking. And students often find themselves wishing for an occasional cold snap so they can sit by the stone fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate.
