The scoop on the new flavor of Emory dining
By jill myers
Whether hungry Eagles are striving to eat healthy or looking to indulge a craving, this fall’s coming attractions from Emory Dining will hit the spot.
To jump-start the morning for those going into the medical field, the new School of Medicine building offers its inhabitants a convenient jolt of caffeine with a first floor coffee bar that also serves pastries. At lunch, students, faculty and staff can move to the second floor cafe for more coffee, plus sandwiches, paninis and salads.
However, if they have the time, they may want to walk a few blocks down Clifton Road to Café Montage at the 1599 Building, which used to house the American Cancer Society.
Held up slightly due to construction delays, the cafe at 1599 Clifton is slated to open in mid-September. It will feature a cafeteria-style hot line, a cook-to-order grill, salad bar, and a daily selection of soup and pizza.
“Café Montage will have a corporate twist, catering mostly to faculty and staff,” said Suzanne Barner, marketing manager for Emory Dining. “It also was designed with sustainability in mind. When available, local foods will be used in cooking, and recycling bins will be incorporated to cut down on waste.”
Following closely on the heels of Café Montage, Dooley’s Den at the Depot also opens in late September after renovations are complete. Well worth the wait certainly, as the Depot will be equipped to serve ice cream that is made on campus and will feature monthly rotating flavors that are unique to Emory. “Special guests” will be invited to combine sorbet, soy or regular ice cream with their favorite ingredients to make the feature flavor of the month. But for the less adventurous, or for those who subscribe to a simpler way of life, basic flavors such as vanilla made with vanilla bean and chocolate will be available.
Other welcome additions to old campus favorites, especially for those who are saving the calories for ice cream, are the “Healthy Plate” meals at Emory Market in the Cox Hall Food Court. High in protein, a complete entrée is at or below 600 calories.
For those who missed lunch and perhaps dinner too, the Night Eagle at Cox Hall will now include Chick-fil-A, Pizza Hut and Burger King.
