The cashier Sue is fantastic. Everybody (the Centre College Students, the Centre College Faculty, the Centre College Staff and Visitors to the Campus) loves Sue. Most of the Cowan staff is friendly and helpful, as with any place there are a few exceptions to the rule. The food is good.

Dining here with groups that were celebrating a certain occasion. The food was catered by Center College especially for the gathering. Good, too.

I'm fairly sure the only other comment for this place is a joke, especially since they call the food "Armenian." This is the local college's cafeteria and everything served is of very poor quality. The workers are slow and often rude. The dishwasher must not work, because the dishes are never clean.
