This place has a great atmosphere and is kind of fun, The food is a bit pricy but it's pretty good and very creative. The drinks and salads are very good. I would go back.

Had a wonderful grass fed burger here. It's has two counters one for food and one for coffee, lattes, etc., so a bit confusing. You stand in line and order and the staff brings the food to you pretty standard college atmosphere.

This is a nice place in the built-from-scratch Storrs Center. Atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. The staff is attentive and you get a great deal on unlimited coffee- including a take-away cup when you are finished dining in. But, two of us had pancakes that were not good. They were burnt, tough, and flat. Very disappointing.

We had dinner here for under $40, including beer. The menu has every imaginable selection for relatively fast food, prepared individually and delivered to your table. The salads are fresh and generous in size. I enjoyed the cup of clam chowder and a half sandwich for a reasonable price. The servers are young and courteous. I would return here again.

My teenage girls and I grabbed lunch here while touring UConn. It it right on the edge of campus. Kind of funky and fun! We tried the the chicken salad and a gourmet grilled cheese. All were delicious!!! I bit pricey for the average college student but I would highly recommend it!

Located in the new Storrs Center, Dog Lane has an extensive lunch and breakfast menu--breakfast all day. I was there for lunch and there was a large selection of sandwiches and soup. Sort of a funky, college atmosphere. Great place to dine and meet up.

They have so much more, but I come here for the sandwiches. They get you served quickly as this place tends to be busy at lunchtime. Imaginative menu and very friendly staff.

Dog Lane Cafe is a great place to just sit and enjoy any meal, at any time of day. Their menu sources locally grown produce and meats, whenever possible, and is very different from most places in our area. There's also a definite university 'vibe' as it's right on the edge of the UConn campus, and an great place to... More
