In the beautiful, new Swartz Hall, the HDS Commons invites you to connect with your community over a delicious meal. Offering hot and cold breakfast selections (8-10:00am), made-to-order lunch items(11:30am-1:30pm), and coffee and grab-n-go (8am-2:30pm). Coming soon, extended hours for the coffee bar, serving expresso-based coffee drinks, pastries, and grab-n-go selections (2:30-6:30pm).
Sink into the rich red and paneled wood scene at the HLS pub. This community gathering spot offers a wide selection of beers, wines and non-alcoholic beverages. Light pub fare is available from the adjoining cafe until 7:45pm. Drop by for a casual drink or snack after classes (see menu below).
Wednesdays: Pub Trivia starting at 7pm (first, second and third prizes available!)
The cafe is in the brightly sunlit entrance of the Laboratory for Integrated Science and Engineering (LISE) building. Start the day here with a freshly brewed Peet's coffee or espresso, complemented by freshly baked pastries. At lunch you can enjoy grab-n-go sandwiches, salads or snacks.
Want to host a group or event outside the scope of LISE's menu? We can help with that, too. Call our affiliated Crimson Catering at 617-496-6000.
At the Northwest Café, we keep the community brewing with Peet's coffee, and a variety of breakfast, lunch and light snack options. The café has plenty of seating, but you might also enjoy dining on the lawn in front of the Museum of Natural History, before or after your visit there! Be sure to take advantage of our reusable mug discount!
Catering services are also available for functions being held in the building. See our menu.
