Think food court. A comfortable indoor plaza with vendor booths and service counters where you can pick and choose from a delightful menu of mouthwatering cuisines. Like all great food-courts Cafe '65 is a cash-and-carry operation, so when your order's in hand, you're good to go-even if you decide to stick around!

Cafe '65 is a great place to pick up everything from wood-fired pizzas, salads, global cuisine and gourmet sandwiches.

Clyde's Pub
Something Fun's Always Brewing at Clyde's.

You know those cozy little pubs you find on cobblestone streets with hanging terraces and ivy-covered redstones? The ones where the feel of good friends and good food tugs at your sleeve, and you know, without giving it a second thought, that if you don't stop in you'll be missing something special? Well, that's Clyde's. And it's the place to be when you want to leave campus life behind without actually leaving the campus.

Clyde's is beer, bar food, and (by our way of thinking) the best place in town to kick back and relax-before your day's event or after. Now, we don't take reservations at Clyde's-that just wouldn't be us-but we do welcome groups with open arms. So if you're fleet-footed, famished, and lucky enough to catch us at a good time, who knows? A party might break out!

Clyde's. It's a warm, relaxing place to spend quality time with quality friends. But, hey, if you can't drop by during the evening, ask about our catered breakfasts. They make greeting the day a whole lot nicer.

Tap into Something Special Relax with Friends in the Cozy Comfort of an Old-style Tavern.
