    BCC does not offer its own food options, however, because it is downtown and is nearby UC Berkeley, most of the nearby restaurants are marketed towards college students. Berkeley is a very diverse city so there are plenty of different cuisines at very reasonable prices. There are also a few grocery stores nearby, including Trader Joe's.

    Unfortunately there is no onsite food. The student lounge has drinks and some snacks. There is a good amount of food within walking distance.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    The food options are good. The college is very urban, so this connects to its community of urban people looking for fast food places.

    BCC is located in Downtown Berkeley, adjacent to several restaurants, pubs, and fast food eateries. It is approximately half a mile from a district renowned for its affordable, yet acclaimed dining experience known as The Gourmet Ghetto. This district is home to Thai, Himalayan, Mexican, Caribbean, Japanese, and slow-food movement eateries including Alice Water's famous Chez Panisse restaurant.
