Before I tell you about Olin College dining services I want to go back to the 1930's. At that time my husband's uncle and family lived right there where the campus was. The original administration building was their actual house. There is a lot of history right there but especially for my husband's family. There his uncle not only raised his family that to this day enjoy showing and riding horses, they also started the fence business my husband has worked in for 40+ years. The business was relocated to Framingham and now to Southboro. It was too noisy for the neighborhood.
Now fast forward to the present time and I just wanted to share how much I enjoy the dining area on campus and the beautiful grounds and buildings there.
They have a great spot on their website with the many restaurants that we have in Needham. If you drive through Needham most any night you will see the streets lined with cars trying all the great restaurants Needham has to offer.
I am posting that part of the site here. I also want to say that Olin offers not only great food breakfast, lunch and dinner but also does catering. The cafeteria is open when school opens and the food is really great.
