El Table, short for “Elevator Table” (when it began in 1904, it was only a small table by an elevator) is a student-run cooperative café serving sandwiches, salads, soups, and snacks. El Table offers vegetarian and gluten-free options, and (perhaps most importantly) refutes the rumor that the Hoop could take El Table in dodgeball.
This student-managed pub has remarkable red décor and beverage prices. As one Yelper put it, “$3.00 beers. Even the good ones. Need I say more?” Even if you’re not there for a beer, the pub is a fun place to meet with friends or fellow members of a student org… and almost always has live music or parties on the weekends.
Café Hoop is a student-run, student-owned co-op on the ground floor of the Lulu Chow Wang Campus Center, founded in 1981. “Hoopies” cheerfully serve up delicious late-night snacks and drinks. The Hoop is a great place to chill—you can take a study break there or drop in on your way home from a party!
