Bon Coeur ("The Good Heart") dining program is designed to make healthy, lower fat eating easier and more fun. Food items which meet our requirements for fat and cholesterol are identified with a Bon Coeur logo. Bon Coeur takes a realistic approach to healthy eating with most dishes providing 35% or less of total calories from fat.
The Bistro is home to the Bon Coeur dining program. Here you will find heart healthy, low fat cooking with a gourmet touch. Check the Cafe Express for the Bon Coeur selections (they're the ones marked with a heart).
Bon Coeur is and always will be a work in progress. We will be trying new foods and adding new items to the menu. If you have a Bon Coeur type of recipe that you would like to share with us or if you have questions concerning Bon Coeur dining at SU, please call the University Dietitian, Laura Marinaro, MS, RD, ATC at 410-548-3529.

The vegan/vegetarian population at SU is growing. In response to this growth, UDS is increasing the dining options available to the vegans and vegetarians we serve. Let's take a tour of the Commons Marketplace from a vegan/vegetarian perspective.
The home to healthy eating, Plato's Plate features vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free recipes.
Includes options like vegan chili and refried beans.
Includes among its daily menu items a vegan marinara sauce.
Wok 'n' Roll
A very popular kiosk with vegetarian students. Here you can have a stir-fry cooked to order while you wait. Wok 'n' Roll offers a wide selection of fresh vegetables along with tofu as a protein source.
Looking for a burger? (Vegetarian of course!) Head over to S.S. Grillers where Vegan Boca Burgers, Garden Burgers & Smart Dogs are cooked to order.
The Bistro is home to Bon Coeur dining which makes healthy, lower fat eating easier and more fun. Bon Coeur, while not a vegetarian program, places a special emphasis on lower fat protein sources like beans and tofu. Vegan dishes like Red Beans & Rice, Penne with Hot & Spicy Tofu and Tofu Spinach Lasagna are features of the Bon Coeur menu.
