Cornell Dining has earned the reputation of offering the finest dining program in the Ivy League.

Toni Morrison Dining Hall, opened in January 2022, is the newest and biggest dining hall on campus. Diners may choose their own culinary adventure, from Mediterranean-inspired veggie bowls and made-from-scratch pasta to the build-your-own waffle bar, plus brand-new certified kosher and halal stations.
