Located in the heart of University of Guelph, the Mountain Dining Hall and Windows Café is the perfect hangout place for people coming back from classes, relaxing from homework burnout, or enjoying a wide variety of food. What’s great about this dining hall is that it is one of the only few dining halls to be located within a residence hall and it is opened till midnight everyday.
When entering the Dinning Hall for the first time, there appears to be an overwhelming amount of food to choose from. But don’t worry, the mood changes right when you walk to the Windows Café.
As soon as you enter the café, you are greeted with the scent of fresh baked waffles and crepes drifting in the air. The Windows Café offers a warm atmosphere filled with a mix of rustic furniture and the sound chatter of people. TVs are found scattered around the café to add entertainment with your meal, so there’s plenty of opportunities to catch up with the latest Jeopardy or the news.
If a social setting doesn’t suit you, then you’ll like the quieter setting the solarium alcoves offer with their comfy couches and a picturesque view from the windows. It’s perfect for a private chat with a fellow student, sharing juicy info with friends, or a rest from the busy university life.
