Award-winning, Flexible Dining Options

In addition to indulging in an array of award-winning regional and international cuisines (including vegan and vegetarian selections) at our daytime retail cafes including the Tresidder Union, we also provide several evening dining options. The Cafe at the Alumni Center provides an early evening choice and should you crave late-night dining, savor, our classic favorites at The Axe & Palm at Old Union which is open until 2 a.m. Delicious foods and beverages are also available at over 175 vending outlets throughout the campus, as well as at our Stanford Stadium concessions during home games. For added convenience, go cashless at our retail locations by purchasing Cardinal Dollars which are automatically programmed into your Stanford ID card. As an extra incentive, for every $100 worth of Cardinal Dollars you purchase, you'll receive a bonus of 10 additional dollars!
