    Pierce Fort Steilacoom has a few little restaurants in the cafeteria including a Thai place. I got a quesadilla on campus one time and the tortilla was even different with some peppers and seasoning in it. There are two different coffee stands on campus. They have two house specialties (one that's a turtle mocha and one that is a mint drink), but they are good for everything I have had there so far. With that said, you can expect to spend a bit to eat or drink on campus. The campus coffee places are comparable to Starbucks prices and the food averages at $8 per thing. The real key is to use the daily specials where you can save some while still getting the convenience of eating on campus.

    I love the free food given from time to time. We get information as well as a full tummy. The cafeteria food is expensive at times but it is yummy none the less. I love the variety of choices given.

    The cafeteria offers everything from delicious and popular flatbread pizza to Asian cuisine to the stand-by fries, burgers and chicken. A special of the day, deli sandwiches, fruits and salad and more are also available. The student bookstore and vending machines offer packaged snack food and all types of soda, juice or energy drinks, some of which is offered in the cafeteria as well. Two coffee carts offer a variety of cold and hot caffeine drinks. The dining area is expansive and eating is allowed in almost every non-lab classroom.

    The cafeteria at Pierce College is great! It has recently been updated and looks brand new! There are many options to choose from when deciding on what to eat, hot or cold. There are plenty of lunch tables to sit at and there is even an mini esspresso in the cafeteria!
