The clock strikes 11:50 am and your stomach is ready for lunch. You sprint out of Stein, only to come to a screeching halt at the sight of the Kimball line – that dreaded, seemingly eternal line out the door all the way to Fenwick. While Upper is full of great food options, a quick bite can always be found at Lower Kimball.
Each day, a variety of items ranging from sushi, to pizza, and mexican fare are freshly prepared and served. The wide assortment of delicious food offerings and endless snacks should be enough to make this your new destination for lunch, but if you’re still not convinced, here are some more reasons why Lower should be your new 11:50 destination:
It’s exciting at first to mix and match foods at Upper, but sometimes, simplicity is key. At Lower, you can grab one sandwich, two sides, and a drink – all for just one swipe. Not only that, but if a crazy day lies ahead, Lower allows students to take food to go- without spending a single dining dollar. Pretty hard to beat.
Granola bars, fruit snacks, trail mix, and yogurt provide a healthy option, while fries, chips, and cupcakes are available for a treat. Not many people are aware of Lower’s new policy of 8 swipes per week. Swipe for two snacks and a drink to save for later and save those precious dining dollars for Cool Beans.
No where else on campus can you find Mexican food so sublime. At “Habaneros” you’ll find chicken, beef, or vegetables topped with rice, cheese, and all the fix-ins inside warm naan bread that is simply divine. Looking for a healthier option? Ask for a chalupa without the bread to make an excellent taco salad.
While it’s great to see everyone at Upper, sometimes you need a calm, relaxed meal with friend. For that, Lower is perfect. This smaller area with cozy round tables that encourage conversation, results in less noise and movement, allowing for a much more pleasant dining experience.
Out of dining dollars or feel like Cool Beans is breaking the bank? Very few students realize that Lower has its very own Keurig machine. For one swipe, students can receive a small coffee and two sides. With flavors such as Mocha Nut Crunch, Mudslide, Hazelnut, and French Vanilla, these coffees are a great use of those extra swipes.
All in all, Lower Kimball provides students with great options for lunch or dinner. Your perfect meal awaits.
