Our Philosophy

Wells Dining is operated by the Inns of Aurora, LLC., a local management company which also operates The Aurora Inn, E.B. Morgan House, Rowland House, Village Market, Fargo Bar & Grill and Dorie's. The Inns of Aurora, LLC. is wholly committed to the highest standards of service and food quality. The Inns of Aurora, LLC. has brought some of the finest chefs in Central New York to the dining program here at Wells College to create a unique dining experience on par with some of the finest restaurants in our area. 
Wells Dining is committed to ecological sustainability and is a willing participant in the global initiative to create less waste and consume fewer resources with great emphasis placed on fresh local ingredients and “from scratch” cooking. We also serve tastes and flavors from around the world. 


Enjoy our offerings in the Main Dining Hall, centrally located and within easy walking distance from any point on campus. Wells Dining is committed to a quick response to any and all feedback from faculty, staff and most importantly, our students. Please share all comments with the Dining Hall Manager or email , or you can like us on Facebook.

The main dining hall, located in the center of Wells College campus, is part of the meal plan for all on- campus students. Off-campus students, faculty, staff, and any and all community members can enjoy our service for reasonable prices.

We feature an extensive salad bar along with homemade soups, from scratch pizza, and an array of desserts.
