Bruff Commons Dining Room


At Bruff Commons, you will find more than food — you will find a community built around friends and classmates, charismatic chefs, and delicious meals. 

Peak Performance, our most popular station, focuses on 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 created 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 from 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 cereal and waffles for breakfast, as well as an 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. 

Simple Servings is a new resident dining option that provides safe and appetizing food choices for customers with food allergies, gluten intolerance, or other special dietary needs. The Simple Servings station offers simply prepared foods made without the FDA most common allergens: peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, wheat, soy, milk products, and eggs. In addition, all foods are made without gluten. To learn more about Simple Servings click here.
