While I was visiting Cornell for a conference, a friend of mine recommended that I eat lunch at Manndible Cafe, mainly based on the convenience of the location. I was pleasantly surprised by the vegan-friendliness of this campus dining facility. There were at least 5 different brands of vegan cookies to choose from, including several from local companies that I hadn't encountered previously. I decided to try the vanilla chai cookies from Everyday Gourmet Vegan Bakery and they were fantastic! Manndible Cafe also had a nice selection of organic sodas and juices, as well as a few hot dishes that were vegan (tofu scramble, vegan sausage patties and customizable burritos that can be made with faux ground beef).

I'm not sure that I would go out of my way to eat at Manndible Cafe if I was just visiting downtown Ithaca, since it's quite a trek to get up the hill to the Cornell campus and, at the end of the day, Manndible still has a "campus dining facility" feel to it. That said, I highly recommend this option to any vegans or vegetarians visiting the Cornell University campus.
