The Commons Café

MacDonald Commons

Exterior of Commons Cafe

The Commons Café offers à la carte dining options for lunch and dinner. We serve a variety of chopped salads, featuring a rotational selection of greens, vegetables, crunchy toppings and house-made dressings. The grill serves made-to-order burgers and flatbreads, and the toppings are completely customizable. For dinner, weekly rotating composed meals are available. On Sundays, a scaled-down version of the everyday menu is available for limited hours.

You'll also find an espresso machine brewing Stockton Graham coffee, sourced locally from Bucknell alumnus Chris Trate '82 through W.A. DeHart. House-made infused waters and aqua frescas are also available. 

In a hurry or low on something? Pick up any of our grab-and-go products, including sushi rolled fresh daily.
