Allergy-Friendly Campus Guide: Auburn University


In three of Auburn University’s dining halls there are allergy stations called True Balance which serve meals free from the top 8 food allergens—my go-to place to eat for dinner! There is also a Panera, Au Bon Pain, Starbucks, NYC gyro food truck, and Amsterdam taco truck on campus! I find I can eat at all these places with no worries about allergens!

Lia’s Auburn Campus Guide

Big Blue Bagel & Deli.png

Big Blue Bagel + Deli

Big Blue Bagel is a staple for breakfast around Auburn! You will find there is usually line of people on the weekends waiting to satisfy their bagel craving. There are a variety of bagel and cream cheeses to choose from. They also do omelets if that’s more your style. My order is either a sausage, egg, and cheese on a plain bagel or the War Eagle omelet with a side of fruit!

Rosshouse Coffee

If you need a coffee in the morning like I do then Rosshouse would be the place to go! It is small, quiet place to relax or study. My order is usually a cold brew with oat milk and sugar-free vanilla syrup!

Hamilton’s On Magnolia

If you are looking for a nice sit-down lunch to go to with friends or family then Hamilton’s is the way to go! It is a classic American restaurant with variety of salads, sandwiches, and other entrees. I got their filet mignon. It it was amazing!

Taco Mama

Taco Mama is a must when visiting Auburn! There are endless combinations of meals to order on their menu! You can build your own burrito bowl, tacos, quesadilla, nachos, or burrito! I love how you can add any of their toppings for free! I either get a chicken quesadilla or a burrito bowl! Their service is super quick too!


The Hound has one of the most unique menus around Auburn! It puts a modern twist on classic southern dishes! The service is amazing and allergies have never been an issue! My go to order is the BYO BURGER with their hand cut fries! I am not gluten-free but they offer a gluten-free bun and side options! Also, I highly recommend brunch here as well! It was to die for and their pancakes, breakfast potatoes, and omelets were all peanut/tree-nut free!

Ariccia Cucina Italiana

Ariccia Cucina Italiana is found inside the Auburn Hotel and it is a hidden gem!! There is never a trip to Auburn where we don’t eat here! They make all of their bread and pasta fresh in-house! My personal favorites are the Margherita pizza and the rigatoni bolognese! I always mention my allergy to our server and they will notify the kitchen!
