All of our locations are within the Brushaber Commons student center. Not only are we right at the hub of student activity on campus, but we also have the advantage of sharing the building's attractive interior design, accent lighting, and huge windows overlooking Lake Valentine. This means that in addition to offering good food, we give you a beautiful place to share it.

Monson Dining Center

The Monson Dining Center, located on the third level of the Brushaber Commons, is Bethel University’s main restaurant, and we’re open during most of the school day. Students can choose from any (and more than one) of our nine stations, from the salad bar to made-to-order-pasta or stir fry—and don’t forget to grab dessert. The Monson Dining Center is made to be an eat-in facility, giving students the room to spread out between the spacious main floor and the quieter balcony level of the seating area. For students on the go between classes, they can choose take out with the reusable to-go program.

3900 Grill

Our take-out restaurant, the 3900 Grill (named for Bethel’s address at 3900 Bethel Drive), is just outside the Monson Dining Center. Here you can order hot items like burgers, pasta, and paninis, and our chefs will cook your food fresh and put it in a to-go box for you. Once you have your food, you can take it with you or you can hang out in the seating area.

Royal Grounds

Our school coffee shop is called The Royal Grounds. Here we serve Caribou Coffee, our own specialty drinks, NRgize smoothies, and freshly squeezed juices. We also sell cold to-go items, like sandwiches and salads, and baked goods, such as Bruegger's bagels and house made scones, seven-layer bars, and cookies.


Whether you need food for a large outdoor event or coffee available after a film forum, the Sodexo catering team is here to serve you. As the exclusive catering provider for the Bethel University St. Paul campus, we will work with you to meet any catering need, whether formal or informal, for groups big or small.
