The Commons Café

MacDonald Commons

Exterior of Commons Cafe

The Commons Café offers à la carte dining options for breakfast, 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 sandwiches, and the toppings are completely customizable. For breakfast, omelets and eggs to order are the perfect way to start each day. 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. Also available are fresh brewed iced tea, made from Two Leaves and a Bud boutique tea. 

In a hurry or low on something? Pick up any of our grab-and-go products and toiletry items from our C-store.
