Breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day and thankfully, Hanover is full of great breakfast options. I thought I'd share the best (in my opinion) breakfast orders at some of Dartmouth and Hanover's most iconic breakfast locations.
- No. 1
Class of '53 Commons
More popularily known as Foco, Dartmouth's main dining hall boasts a plethora of daily breakfast and serves brunch on the weekend until 2PM.
My Foco order:
-Made to order omelet with gouda, turkey, spinach and green peppers.
-A bowl of fresh fruit (options change daily).
-A cup of nitro brew coffee from the coffee station.
- No. 2
Collis is my go-to option for breakfast most days before class. While the majority of the menu options are made to order, there are also some grab-and-go options!
My Collis order:
-Made to order breakfast sandwich with egg and sausage on a bagel.
-Acai bowl with banana and honey or strawberry banana smoothie (depending on my mood of course).
-Baked good (everyday Collis has a rotating selection of homemade cookies, browies, muffins etc.!).
- No. 3
King Arthur Flour
"KAF" (for short) is a great place to grab a light snack before your early morning class. Known for their incredible chocolate milk, the popular cafe is convinently located on the first floor of Baker-Berry Library.
My KAF order:
-Chocolate milk with a shot of espresso.
- No. 4
Known as a Hanover tradition, Lou's is one of the most popular off-campus breakfast spots. Having been apart of the Dartmouth community for years, the restaurant is now owned by a Tuck graduate.
My Lou's order:
-"The Big Green" (includes two eggs, sausage, bacon, cruller French toast (yes, a cruller donut made into French toast), homefries and a muffin).
- No. 5
Hanover's crepe place is known for it's cozy atmosphere and live music! Any of their crepes can be made with gluten-free or vegan batter.
My Skinny Pancake order:
-The "Deja Vu" crepe (sausage, cheddar, and apples served with local maple syrup).
-Side of home fries.
- No. 6
Located right downtown, Pine has a great patio to sit outside during the warmer months. Another Dartmouth classic, Pine offers a rotating seasonal menu.
