Locations & Menus

We have several locations offering a variety of food and drink to meet all your dining needs.

For full-scale, sit-down dining, Pearson’s Café serves up breakfast, lunch, and dinner options that are freshly prepared with whole foods and a balanced diet in mind. Mercy Market and Brewed Awakenings both act as quick stops for coffee beverages, smoothies, bottled drinks, boxed food, and snacks that are perfect for enjoying outside when the weather's nice or taking back to the room for a quick study break pick-me-up. After hours, The Chalet offers late-night dining with foods like pizza, wings, and salads to cover any cravings.

Classic grilled cheese sandwiches, french fries, and hot dogs  are also offered daily, along with rotating specials such as turkey burgers, house made veggie burgers, and chicken wings.

Most of our dressings are made from scratch with at least nine different options to choose from, including low-fat and fat-free options. Seasonal fruit is available throughout the Café.

    Gluten-Free Station

    Do you have a gluten allergy or sensitivity? Enjoy gluten-free pastas and sauces, pizza, a rotating entrée, and a desert option that are all prepared carefully and kept separate from glutenous ingredients in order to ensure your health and happiness.
