These outlets make up well over fifty percent of Emory’s food service outlets. These locations include the Dobbs Common Table (the main, all-you-can-eat dining hall for undergraduates on campus), Cox Hall (a popular food market that includes local and regional chain restaurants such as Ray’s Pizza, Twisted Taco, Maru, Freshens, and Blue Donkey), Peet’s Coffee (a popular coffee shop in the main library), Starbucks (also popular; located in the undergraduate admissions building), the Rollins Cafe (the main service outlet for Rollins School of Public Health students, faculty, and staff), the Eagle Emporium (a small snack and sandwich shop located in the campus student center), White Hall (a small sandwich outlet in a busy academic building), and the Student Activities and Academic Center (the main food service outlet for upperclass students living on Emory’s Clairmont campus).
