Welcome to the Wolves’ Den


For decades, the Vet School Cafe has served the College of Veterinary Medicine. It closed in May for renovations and opened August 22 under a new name — The Wolves’ Den — with a fresh new menu and modern serving area fitting of a world-class institution.

Located on the lower level of the Small Animal Hospital at the College of Veterinary Medicine, the restaurant offers fresh, made-to-order lunch options including salads, wraps, paninis and a rotating chef’s special. Along with these made-to-order selections, vegetarian and vegan items are also be available.

The new chef’s special will rotate weekly and includes brand new menu items, such as:

  • Made-to-order pasta selections
  • Custom burritos, quesadillas and pork carnitas
  • Asian specials including sesame chicken, General Tso’s chicken, and spring rolls

The Wolves’ Den serves lunch Monday through Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. In addition to its delicious lunch menu, the Wolves’ Den is now offering breakfast Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Breakfast selections include a variety of made-to-order biscuits and wraps. Acceptable forms of payment include Meal Credits, Dining Dollars, cash, debit or credit.

The new restaurant also accepts pre-orders through the Tapingo app. Tapingo is a popular mobile ordering app that allows guests to place their order and pay in advance, while skipping the line altogether. Guests receive a text notification from Tapingo when their order is ready for pick up at Wolves’ Den. Tapingo is available on the App Store and through Google Play.
