The Commons Logo

The Commons is the main dining facility on the PLU campus. Hospitality Services & Campus Restaurants has a truly unique meal plan that combines a la carte and unlimited access meals to enhance the student dining experience.

Our skilled culinary team has developed an exciting array of menu selections that combine the best of local and global ingredients. The result is an a la carte lunch menu that features a wide selection of freshly prepared menu items and a uniquely sustainable unlimited access dinner menu.

The Commons features four main stations:

  • Crave—the grill serving burgers, fries and other similar favorites
  • Aglio—lunch has flatbreads, pasta bowl or salad bowl. Dinner has pizza and pasta
  • Cross Cultures—serving world cuisine throughout the week
  • Good Things—the deli station with custom made sandwiches

In addition to the four stations, there is an area serving breads and grains, a dessert station with freshly baked goodies and for breakfast a make your own waffle station. The salad bar packed with many local and organic produce items is available for lunch and dinner every day. Beverages include a Pepsi fountain with a wide variety of choices, water and Seattle’s Best coffee available all day.
