  • At Your Service
    With three different dining facilities on campus that range from all-you-can-eat to grab-and-go, Pearson's is there for you with your first morning coffee to your last late-night bite.
  • Ask the Chef
    • I'm a commuter student. What dining options do I have?

      We offer a meal plan for our commuter students. Students can also add flex dollars to their account and use them at Baggot Street or Brewed Awakenings.

    • What's for lunch and dinner in the café?

      We offer many choices for lunch and dinner. Our dining hall includes deli and salad bars, soup and pasta stations, a grill, pizza oven, and home-style station that serve up delicious entrées and desserts. We even cater to gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan diets. Check out our weekly menu to see what's offered today.

    • Is the dining hall the only place I can eat?

      Not at all! Besides the café, students can grab a bite at Brewed Awakenings or Baggot St. Café.

    • Do you offer gluten-free or vegan foods?

      We feature vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free items in the café daily. To learn more about how we cater to those with food restrictions, click through to our page about specialty diets.

    • Where do the ingredients you use come from?

      As much as possible, we aim to use ingredients that come from local farms and Maine companies. Click through for a total list of our regional partners and their products.

    • As an SJC coach, can I order food to go for my student-athletes?
