Located on the street level of brand-new Elm Hall, Cultivate is a special destination for students, faculty and staff who want to experience full-service dining with a nod to locally sourced fresh food and a community feel. The menu celebrates new discoveries and memories of food, and features a Pacific Northwest twist on regional comforts.

Vegetarians can revel in the fresh, crisp tastes of our seasonal market salad or black-eyed pea and quinoa cakes.
