Fresh food is key to our dining options.

Dining Services

Our expanded dining options in our new Battenberg Café in the Learning Commons mean you can grab something to go or sit down for a meal with friends from the first floor food cafe. Or grab a cup of our very own Bulldog Blend roasted locally by Great Lakes Coffee in the second floor coffee shop.

Kettering University and Creative Dining Services are partnering to bring you this whole new campus dining experience.

You can choose food from one of the seven stations in the Battenberg Café or one of your favorites from Einstein Bagel Bros. In the afternoon and late-night, you can order personalized pizza at the Café Order Window or from the specialty menu at BJ’s Lounge.

The Zone

We believe that delicious food shouldn't be limited by your diet. That's why The Zone station offers a wide variety of dishes prepared without the top eight allergens (milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat and soybeans) but are delicious and flavorful like chicken bacon cacciatore, mojo grilled chicken wings and Singapore noodles.

 

Hearth ‘19

Food should be exciting, flavorful and innovative. The Creative Dining Service chefs use emerging global flavors to create aromatic, handcrafted dishes with flavor profiles from France, India, Greece and Thailand. Signature dishes will be available every day at Hearth ‘19, including the popular Dashi concept — a rice or noodle bowl topped with Asian-inspired beef, sesame tempeh or hickory-smoked chicken with edamame beans, bamboo shoots and shiitake mushrooms in flavorful broths such as lemongrass chicken or orange miso.

Sobey Deli

The Sobey Deli is your go-to spot for great sandwiches, handcrafted burgers and more!

Named after Kettering founder Albert J. Sobey, the Sobey Deli features fresh-cut meats, assorted cheeses and seasonal toppings to build your own sandwiches. Handcrafted burgers with fries and tater tots also are available.

 

Trattoria

We're not saying you're never going to want to leave the Trattoria, but…

We are saying that our amazing pizza oven is capable of producing some of the best Italian dishes you've ever had. We're talking baked ziti, tortellini piccata, spicy pepperoni and Margherita pizzas — all of which you can enjoy when the mood strikes you.

The Pastry Place

It’s all about the desserts, so we made sure to have plenty of sweet treats for you to indulge in.

Our daily-made pastries? They're fresh. Our juices? Fresh. Our milks, and fruit, and yogurt parfaits? Fresh. Every time you come in, you can expect to find options that are made with the best ingredients possible so you can start every day fresh!

Terra Verde

The freshest seasonal ingredients are at Terra Verde for you to build your own salads. Chef-inspired features of the day are available, too, along with soups made from scratch. You can enjoy hummus, pickled and roasted veggies, nuts, seeds, mixed leafy greens such as arugula, Boston and buttered lettuce—and more!

We know that you're hungry. We know you want to get your food quickly and easily. That's why we offer our students afternoon and late-night options such as personal pizzas and a rotation of items such as chili, boneless wings, street tacos and smoked pork carnitas nachos.

 

Einstein Bros. Bagel

Einstein’s is our neighborhood bagel shop where you can get freshly baked bagels, breakfast sandwiches, lunch sandwiches, coffee and so much more. Stop on in. There’s always a fresh bagel and cup of coffee ready for you.

 

Food is a vital part of our day-to-day life. Our new dining services recognizes that importance.

 

 

 

Locally Sourced and Environmentally Minded

Our new dining services recognize that importance. Our new dining options include the use of locally-sourced food meaning healthier and fresher options.

Every student is provided a reusable 18 oz. tumbler to use at the free beverage station in the Learning Commons. And to help reduce waste, we are using reusable, eco-friendly, green meal cartons allowing you to take your food to enjoy wherever you like. Just drop the carton off at one of our drop-offs so we can wash and sanitize for the next meal.
