Numerous changes were put in place throughout Linfield’s dining services at the beginning of this spring semester. This includes increased service hours at Starbucks and Dillin Hall, take out options and larger selection of menu options.

The new hours at Starbucks include Monday-Friday: 7:30 a.m. to midnight, Saturday: 3:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Sunday: 3:00 p.m. to midnight.

The new hours at Dillin include Monday-Thursday 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., Friday 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

There will also be a larger selection of menu options at Starbucks, including Bistro Boxes (Chicken & Hummus, Protein and Cheese & Fruit), Sandwiches (Chicken BLT Salad, Egg Salad, Ham & NY Cheddar, Turkey & Havarti), Paninies (Chicken Santa Fe, Ham & Swiss, Roasted Tomato & Mozzarella) and Salad Bowls (Chicken & Greens Caesar, Zesty Chicken & Black Bean).

For students and staff looking for minimally processed food, Dillin Hall will now be offering “Simple Servings,” which include organic, free range and no hormone antibiotic chicken breasts, organic long grain brown rice, gluten-free pasta, marinara sauce and alfredo sauce.

Dillin Hall is also becoming more take out friendly and offering sandwiches, quesadillas, soups, desserts and drinks at its take out counter near the dish return station. There will also be a variety of “specialty food offering” available for take out, including organic pineapple jerky and gluten-free, vegan and non-GMO chips and snacks.
