Vegetarian & Vegan 

One of the most popular stations in Harrington Place is our Vegetarian Station which has vegan entrée’s, soups, composed salads, and more for lunch and dinner. At each station, entrées are clearly marked with designated signage for Vegan and Vegetarian options. We strive to offer a variety of soup options, and salad bar condiments that create healthful and balanced meals. 

We recognize that no two customers choose the same. Some of our customers have specific medical related needs, religious and/or cultural dietary requirements. This is why Belmont Dining seriously considers our offerings and provides specialized services in addition to our wide variety of foods that cater to our customers’ dietary needs and preferences.
