Jake’s Place Renovation
Albright’s Campus Life and Dining Services teams are happy to announce that Jake’s Place has been fully renovated and updated! Find great food, student work spaces, and a new perfect spot to relax! There are student service offices surrounding a student lounge, performance space, new seating areas and pool tables.
Jake’s Place offers four restaurants, all available on GrubHub and for cash equivalency. These restaurants offer a wide variety of student favorites, healthy choices, and grab and go options for busy Lions on the move:
Grille : Focused on the cornerstone of any grill menu — burgers, fries and cheesesteaks comprise some popular meals, prepared with passion.
The Spread: Interested in a bold, fierce, “wicked good” eating experience? The Spread’s chef-inspired signature subs are infused with epic house-made spreads, toasted to perfection.
Tender, Love & Chicken: Do you believe that chicken tenders are the perfect food? Our chef’s devotion to chicken, and a dash of love, help to craft the best hand-breaded chicken tenders out there.
Greens 2 Go: Featuring Lancaster farm fresh produce, Greens 2 Go offers classic, signature and create-your-own salads. Our bread, fruit and soup options are also made with fresh ingredients from the Lancaster Farm Fresh co-op.
What is new with My Meal Plan?
With our renovation to Jake’s Place, we’re giving you more with your meal plan!

(Meal Periods: breakfast 7am-10:59 am, lunch 11am-3:59 pm, dinner 4pm-11:59 pm. Each location will offer a Meal Deal and the deal will vary based on location.
Bonus Dollars: Bonus Dollars may be used at any on-campus Albright College Dining location just like cash. Bonus Dollars can be used with your cash equivalency, should your purchase exceed the $6 credit for your meal.
