I was super impressed when I came back to eat here after years away. Vegan options are plentiful and clearly labeled. On any given day, there are usually only 2-3 non-vegan choices.

The salad bar is epic. I find it hard to eat anything except a giant heaping plate of fresh, organic salad. Varieties of lettuce, shredded carrots, beets, sprouts, spinach, beans, nuts, cherry tomatoes, etc.

There's also a cooler with lots of soy, almond, and local dairy milk. A glass of chocolate milk makes a sweet end to the meal.

There's also a good condiment spread, with berbere, chickpea salad spread, tofu spread, jam, and sunflower seed butter.

It's easy to eat a balanced, healthy, organic, filling meal here. Very good value for the money.

Pros: Organic, local, vegan options!, Great salad bar
Cons: Can be crowded at peak times

I went to school at MUM so after eating there 100s of times there is a lot that can be said. The main thing is that the quality of the food can vary greatly. Some days it's good; some days it's very good, and some days it's down right nasty. With the current chef I would say the quality of the food has greatly improved. Being buffet style at breakfast, lunch and dinner there is always lots to choose from. Pizza day is once a week and it's always good. There is a fresh salad bar and always something for any style of vegetarian. The price is good, if you like to eat a lot but being a University sometimes it happens that they run out of the food that people most like. It can also be very busy at times, especially during lunch and drink selections are minimal. As is, I would say the quality is great. Did I mention that almost everything is organic.

Pros: organic/vedic agriculture, price, all-you-can-eat
Cons: crowded peak times, quality not consistant
