Bandersnatch Coffee House

Bandersnatch Coffee House (in Huffman) Image 1

Need a place to unwind? Meet up with friends? Or an informal place to study? The student-run Bandersnatch Coffeehouse, located in Huffman Hall, functions as an alternative social outlet for all of Denison's student body. It offers a range of tasty snacks (including the famous Snagel) and an expansive coffee menu. But if you're not in the mood for something to eat or drink, you're still invited to stop by, sit and study, catch some live music or a poetry reading, or just hang out with friends.

History & Architecture

The Bandersnatch, a student-run coffee house and social space that had its earliest version in the now razed Colwell House. Begun in 1968, "the Snatch" moved to Huffman Hall in 1987.

The Bandersnatch was founded in 1968 by a large group of Denison students— including musicians, art and dance majors, and fun-loving patrons—who gave the coffee shop its name and inspired today’s Alice in Wonderland-themed décor.
