The unique campus bistro offers foods that are simple, fresh and inspired by the seasons; focusing on regional products prepared with classical cooking techniques by Chef David Rushing. With a focus on sustainable and locally-sourced ingredients, Ibby's offers a delightful, fresh, daily-changing buffet that encompasses all of your lunch needs, whether you have time for just a quick stop or a leisurely meal. During dinner hours, the seasonal menu includes soups, salads, starters, entrees, alcoholic beverages and coffee. Creative, house-made desserts are popular as well! The campus bistro serves as a unique dining experience honoring Ibby Danforth and is prized by the students as well as faculty, staff and community. The space was named after Chancellor Emeritus William H. Danforth's late wife, Ibby, in honor of her dedication and support of WUSTL!

“A gem on the campus of Washington University”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2012

Ibby's is located on the campus of Washington University in St. Louis, but it does not serve your typical college campus food! Though the menu choices are somewhat limited, everything we tried was excellent. The butternut squash soup, especially, was to die for. Thick and rich with just the right sweetness and savoriness, it was garnished with cubes of squash, pecans and...were those pieces of pie crust? Yummy! It was a treat for my daughter to pay for us with her meal plan points, but don't worry, they take cash and credit cards, too!
