Bandersnatch Coffee House
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.
