    There are cafes on every HCC campus that I visited, along with plenty of restaurants near-by, especially in downtown Houston. After hours of studying, food availability is a must. Cafe is not gourmet or anything, but it fills you up.

    They've got a bookstore and a deli that have a wide array of food options. You'll never go hungry or get bored of the food, as there is always plenty to choose from.

    I attend the Alief campus. Currently there is no cafeteria on site (hopefully that changes), but there is a wide variety of tasty food in the area that's not too pricey. But if your trying to save money and still eat healthy, i suggest you bring your own food, because no one can survive off of the bookstore snacks alone.
