Whittier College provides an excellent food service program for all students, employees, and guests. Bon Appétit, Whittier’s food service contractor, has won awards in the food service industry for being a trend setter. Bon Appétit not only prepares the food for The Spot and Campus Inn, but also provides on-campus catering.
The Spot is conveniently located on the third floor of the Campus Center next to the Student Lounge. An alternative dining spot and Whittier tradition since the 1940s, The Spot offers a coffee-shop menu, featuring freshly grilled foods, authentic Mexican foods, made-to-order sandwiches, salads, and daily specials, in addition to an espresso bar and fresh fruit Smoothie Bar. The Spot accepts Flex Dollars, Poet Cash, cash, and credit cards.
The Campus Inn
Serving as the campus’ main cafeteria, the Campus Inn – or ‘CI’ - is located on the second floor of the Campus Center and offers a variety of foods served from different stations, including Café Classics, Exhibition, Deli, Grill, Ovens, Farm to Fork, and, of course, a delicious Grainary where you can find delicious house baked pastries and desserts. Often, students are treated to special cuisine days, where the fare turns to outdoor Mongolian barbeque, Mexican- or South America-themed menus, or local, organic dishes. The Campus Inn accepts meal plans, Flex Dollars, Poet Cash, cash, and credit cards.
