If you are at risk for severe allergic reactions, please note that we are unable to guarantee the absence of allergen cross-contact during food manufacturing and preparation. In addition, last-minute product substitutions may not always be identified. For these reasons we strongly encourage you to consult the on-site Chef or Dining Manager to make sure your order is free of any specific allergens.

Connecting Grounds

Style: Cafes and Coffee Shops

Cuisine: Espresso, Iced/Frozen Beverages, Specialty Coffees, Bagels/Muffins/Pastries

For several years Student Life's Dining Services and Buck-I-SERV have partnered to send students and staff to Honduras to see first hand how we're connecting with farmers from around the world. Through these trips, we've been able to create Connecting Grounds. This unique cafe connect at Ohio State focuses on direct trade coffee. We will feature a variety of brews and blends with beans 100% traceable from their origins.
