Our residential dining cafés are all-you-care-to-eat, meaning a guest can eat as much or as little as they like. Penn has four residential cafés throughout campus. Guests who have dining plans, which are comprised of various amounts of visits (also known as “meals” or “swipes”) and Dining Dollar$, will have one visit deducted from their balances each time they enter the all-you-care-to-eat café. To gain entry, the guest’s PennCard is swiped at the entrance of each all-you-care-to-eat dining café, where the visit is deducted electronically.
