The Finest in Hospitality – Stanford’s Retail Locations

R&DE Stanford Hospitality & Auxiliaries continues to offer essential meal services to the Stanford campus, with a modified schedule that acknowledges the reduced campus population and supports social distancing. The Market at Munger, The Axe & Palm, EVGR Marketplace, EVGR Pub & Beer Garden and Coffee Bar @ the Clark Center are open for students, faculty and staff with a valid Stanford Health Check "green badge". Learn more.

We are committed to providing a safe retail environment for our customers and staff with increased cleaning, disinfecting and safety protocols. We offer convenient contact-free shopping and meal pre-order online and with our mobile app and provide grocery delivery and curbside pick-up options. Learn more about our Contact-Free Hospitality Initiative.  

Cardinal Dollars are accepted at all R&DE retail locations and Stanford students pay no sales tax on meal purchases when presenting their valid student ID at time of service. For greater flexibility, some locations also accept Meal Plan Dollars. Learn more. Proceeds from R&DE retail locations help offset increases in room and board, and support student programs.
