Oakes Café is a popular café for students from every college. There is a pool table and big screen TV there. Their food is okay, but it beats dining hall food any day. They sell Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream, which is very popular among students. They also accept meals, so a student who has a 75 meal plan can trade in his meal to buy food at Oakes Café. Each meal is worth $8, so a meal can get you $8 worth of food at Oakes. Students who hate the dining halls will live off of Oakes Café and Owl’s Nest, which also accepts meals.
