West End Market at Cochrane Hall

JP's Chop House at West End Market

West End Market, was the first true marketplace-style dining operation on a university campus in the United States. It opened in 1999, replacing Cochrane Dining Hall, which was constructed in 1982. A renovation in 2011 added a seating annex as well a increased kitchen and storage capacity. West End Market is known on campus for having a great selection of plant-forward options including vegan cookies and Leaf and Ladle's Braised Tempeh Bowl. It features made-to- order items prepared before the customers and offers specialties such as London broil, lobster, and steak on a daily basis.
