Brian Gallagher ’14, Mahwah, N.J.:
My favorite is the beef stroganoff. Oddly enough, the beef isn’t even that good, but it’s the sauce and the noodles that get me going.
Ben Tritsch ‘13, Bel Air, Md.:
Two words: chicken nuggets. You always know when Baker has them, because the line basically goes out the door. It’s worth the wait, though.
Hannah Breen ’13, Somerset, Pa.:
I like the deli bar in Baker because of the amount of options I have. Though, I usually get a spinach wrap with hummus and lots of veggies. Oh, and the mushroom and barley soup is scrumptious.
Ryan Dempsey ’14, West Chester, Pa.:
My go-to meal in Baker would have to be a toasted English muffin with peanut butter and banana slices. It’s both delicious and nutritious.
Jackie Swain ’14, Hampstead, Md.:
Baker food isn’t my favorite, but they had this pumpkin ice cream that my taste buds couldn’t get enough of. I wish it wasn’t a seasonal flavor.
