Bruff Commons Resident Dining Room


Click here to take a tour of Bruff Commons, the resident dining hall

At Bruff Commons you will find more than food, you will find a community built around friends and classmates, charismatic chefs, and delicious meals. To energize our community, we listened to our students’ inputs to redesign Bruff so we can offer even more food favorites in a contemporary environment.

Peak Performance is our most popular station that focuses high-protein meals for active lifestyles. We serve grass-fed meats and local farm veggies. If you're vegetarian or vegan, Peak Performance Plus always has a meat-free menu selected with the same high standards for food fuel.

Branching out from Peak Performance, you'll find everything from New Orleans standards like red beans and rice to comfort foods around the world to delicious dining you won't find anywhere else, like our daily signature salad. We also offer top-quality versions of dorm-food favorites like cereals and waffles for breakfast as well as ice cream bar stocked with premium flavors for dessert.

Since we want you to feel good about what you eat here, premium brands and local farms are a top priority for Bruff. Share a bite of New Orleans' best Jazzmen Aromatic Rice with your roommate or drop in with a study buddy for daily fresh and local Gulf Coast fish. It's all about cooking up the best food for your body, brain, and taste buds.

Perhaps the best aspect about Bruff is the limitless food options. Every day you can choose from nearly 20 food stations. And if you take a walk through the open floor plan and don't find anything to tempt your palate, we've still got you covered. Bruff’s layout makes it easy to browse all the bounty, and our staff loves to cook up a unique creation of your own at the grill station.

Check out our YouTube channel for clever ideas that mix up the options for a meal you'll love to share with your new Tulane family. So come to Bruff and see what's cooking. When you eat with us, we always want you to feel like you're coming home for dinner!

Bruff Commons is a 100% "for here" dining room. Please enjoy all the food you like when you visit. For to go options, Visit Bruff to Go located behind Bruff Commons facing the Bruff Quad, and at the Drawing Board Cafe (School of Architecture).
