We recommend Ebrik Coffee Room on Level Three for coffee, snacks, and pastries. On-campus options include the Cox Hall food court, Kaldi’s at the Depot, and Highland Bakery at Goizueta Business School. In Emory Village, a short walk from campus, you’ll find Rise and Dine, Saba, Dragon Bowl, Dave’s Cosmic Subs, Falafel King, and Chipotle Mexican Grill. If you don’t mind a short drive, you can also try Emory Point, which offers The General Muir, Marlow’s Tavern, and Aladdin’s Mediterranean Grill among other choices.
