The Hearth

At the Hearth, we strive to inspire and foster a sense of community - that's why we're proud to continue the Georgian tradition of being the best. At the Hearth, where Georgians gather, we see every day as an opportunity to serve delicious food, innovate great events, create warm environments and provide an overall amazing dining experience. 

We provide you with a range of dining options designed to support the RSGC community. Check out a few of the aspects of our program that make us head and shoulders above the rest.

We Are Green!

By eliminating single use plastic tableware, and offering 100% compostable take out and disposable dinnerware, we reduce our carbon foot print. Student-driven projects also supported the roll out of our RSGC Go Green Strategy: educational videos, signage and photographs were all part of the efforts to increase awareness and educate the school community to make better decisions for the Earth. We also encourage students and staff to bring their own reusable water bottles and hot beverage cups.

    We only make soup from scratch because it tastes best that way! The broth is simmered until it's just right. This is how we demonstrate our culinary prowess - by offering excellent homemade soups from our kitchen for you to enjoy. The rotating selection will always feature one vegetarian and one gluten-free option to meet students' needs.
