Jake’s Place Renovation Project

Albright’s Campus Life and Dining Services teams are happy to announce that Jake’s Place will be fully renovated and updated for fall 2021! Find great food, student work spaces, and a new perfect spot to relax! Student service offices will surround a student lounge, performance space, new seating areas and pool tables.

Jake’s Place will be expanded to offer four new restaurants, which will available on GrubHub and for cash equivalency.
These restaurants will offer a wide variety of student favorites, healthy choices, and grab and go options for busy Lions on the go:

  • Grille Works
    • 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.

The Jake’s Place physical location will be closed for construction beginning Monday, April 12 and will reopen in August. However, all of your Jake’s Place favorite foods can still be ordered via the Grubhub app and picked up at the Dining Hall between 8 p.m. and 12 a.m., seven days a week. Additional grab-n-go items will also be available at Jake’s Java. See all Dining Service offerings online here.
