Had lunch here while at a conference on campus. Had the "poquito" (burrito sans the shell) and it was very good - fresh ingredients and nice portion. The chicken was tender and the veggies crisp...nice flavor. There we lots of things that looked good...will go again! The place was very busy but the wait not too bad...

Manndibles is unparalleled on the Cornell campus for its quality of food and focus on sustainability. However, the lunch time crowd and the wait time can be a bit daunting. Just discovered that if I settled for their "quick lunch" (soup and sandwich) it cuts the wait time down considerably. It is also deliciously satisfying.

Staffs are always kind and nice. Very busy place during the semester. You can have a high quality coffee as well as local foods

Best place to get Gimme coffee on Cornell's campus. Overall best specialty coffee as well (even coffee art sometimes!), with friendly staff and great vegan/vegetarian goodies (great burritos for the non veggie).

The servers/ preparers at Manndible cafe are awesome! They graciously customize things for you, with a smile. The food is healthy AND tasty and they have good vegetarian and vegan options.

Enjoyed lunch with friends here--like the idea of a cafe at a library! But the whole process was so disorganized to order and pick up. Perhaps disorganization was due to size constraints, but it was convenient location & sandwich & dessert were good.

Great coffee with local and organic food, nicely prepared with lots of delectable edibles. Great place to pick up coffee, snacks and lunch. Good soups, poquitos, and burritos. Fridays, the specialty is curry. Yes, the price is a bit high but it's quality ingredients and service, after all. Use a pre-paid Manndibles card to bring the price down. Sometimes it... More

This is one of those places you can go and get a good selection of vegan and vegetarian food. This place is on campus so it is mostly for students. As to expect it is a bit pricey but they do a great job with the food. They have a good selection and prepare it fairly quickly and everything I... More

.. if you care about what you eat and where your food comes from. Gets crowded at lunch and sometimes they run out of the daily specials. Can always count on quality soups and wraps. I carry a pre-paid Manndibles card even though I do not go to the main Cornell campus frequently -- that's how much I like it!

They serve local and organic food, which tastes great. The price of the meat burrito is a bit too high, especially compared with the veg burrito option. I hear they have good coffee and tofu too. I also like the tofu scramble plate at times.
