Serving from early morning to late at night, the Café 77 is open in the Elrod Commons for your convenience and your taste buds. Conveniently located in the heart of campus, it’s a great place to get an artisan-quality deli sandwich featuring in house roasted meats, hand pressed burgers, fresh cut fries, sushi and more.

The Tea House

The newly renovated Center for Global Learning features a new concept to campus based on loose leaf tea. The Tea House features 12 loose leaf teas that can be purchased as individual cups, used for specialty drinks such as shaken teas, bubble tea, and lattes. Exclusive baked goods, salads, sandwiches and sushi complement the beverage selection. University Store merchandise such as French presses, travel mugs, collector tins etc. round out the offerings in a great space.

The E. Café

Found within the Hillel House on Washington Street, the E Café serves incredible made-to-order breakfast sandwiches and New York-style bagels with house-made spreads. Creative vegan, vegetarian and pescatarian sandwiches and gourmet greens and grain salads celebrate seasonal and locally sourced produce, and freshly baked deserts are available to round out your meal. The E Café is a kosher dairy café.

Sorority Dining

Washington and Lee’s six sorority houses offer meal plans to live-in and live-out members. They provide a small family atmosphere, and the dining service staff in each house strives to accommodate menu requests, suggestions, and special dietary requirements. New for Academic Year 2015-2016, the sorority kitchens will be fully integrated into campus dining and will feature the same "scratch made" philosophy that is featured across campus.

The Brief Stop

The Brief Stop is conveniently located on the lower level of Sidney Lewis Hall. We offer restaurant-quality breakfast and deli sandwiches, soups made from fresh stock and Heat’n Eat meals, fresh sushi, and our OnTheGo! selections for your convenience.
