Hewitt Dining Hall is located on the Barnard campus on the first floor of Hewitt Hall. Columbia students with a meal plan can redeem meals here through Columbia's affiliation with Barnard. Many students suffer its longer wait times (dining staff hand serve all students) for the generally higher quality food. Lines are normally the longest at the stir fry, sandwich bar, and hot bar. Hewitt also offers a large Kosher section and often has more vegan and vegetarian options.
