Detour: John Muir College

Muir College, the next stop on our Campus Eats! Tour, is home to HDH’s restaurants that truly resemble the motto for the community, “Celebrating the independent spirit”. Found within the structures of Muir include the dining unit Pines, our vegan friendly Roots restaurant and John’s Market.

Root’s, the University’s first exclusively vegan/vegetarian restaurant, has received nationwide recognition for the diverse menu offerings at this gem. Its location is a bit off the beaten path, hidden beneath Pines; however their menu definitely packs a huge flavor punch. Interested in trying a combination of unique ingredients and flavors that complement each other in a way your taste buds have yet to experience? Well, if your answer is yes, I encourage you to step inside the orange room and place your order for the Pacheco Pass!

No matter the time of day you enter, you are bound to run into a classmate here for it is the campus’s most popular dining hall that features many different options. Craving sushi? Pizza? Pasta? Carved Sandwiches? A home cooked meal? No problem! Scott and the team of Pines are sure to provide you with a satisfying and wholesome meal.
