Mealtime at Saint Leo is about more than feeding the body; it's about feeding the soul.
There's a reason why all our students—even those with fully stocked apartment kitchens—flock to the dining hall. It's a place to connect. Meet a new friend, plan a fundraiser with sorority sisters, talk career goals with your criminal justice professor, or gather around the flatscreen tuned to ESPN.
Dining Services is here to serve you: We do breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch, grab 'n' go snacks and drinks, event catering, and even birthday cakes.
Located on the ground floor of the Student Community Center, Saint Leo's dining hall features home-cooked and cooked-to-order selections, from pizza to Mongolian grill to Southern cuisine to made-your-way omelets. We offer an ever-increasing variety of vegetarian and vegan options.
The Lion's Lair is your spot for a quick bite. Grab a pressed Cuban sandwich or a spinach wrap, or pick up a latte to sip during that sport business lecture. Open late and located in the Student Community Center, the Lion's Lair also sells a selection of necessities, from toothpaste to Easy Mac.
Benedict’s Coffeehouse is a We Proudly Serve Starbucks™ venue featuring Starbucks coffees, specialty drinks and teas and a variety of sandwiches, salads, and snacks. With plenty of indoor and outdoor patio seating, Benedict’s offers extended hours and blazing Wi-Fi for the ultimate coffeehouse experience on campus, day or night. Visit Benedict’s Coffeehouse at the east end of Kirk Lawn. Open Daily 7AM – MIDNIGHT

As a Catholic university seeking growth in mind, body and spirit for all members of our community, Saint Leo is committed to creating an eco-friendly campus.
- Reusable To-Go Containers: Say goodbye to Styrofoam waste. We use durable, reusable plastic containers for all to-go orders. Pay a one-time $3 fee for your container, then bring it back anytime.
- Washable Dishes & Flatware: Saint Leo washes reusable plates, silverware and cups rather than relying on the disposable stuff. We want to be part of the solution, not the problem.
- Tray-less Dining: It's proven. No trays in the dining hall means less wasted food and fewer dishes to wash. This initiative helps reduce our carbon footprint by reducing landfill and food waste, electricity and sewage, and preserving natural resources.
