The cafeteria offers a grill menu (burgers, fries, etc.) as well as grab and go items. The Cafe offers pre-made burritos as well as made-when-you order rice bowls, personal pizzas, and pasta dishes. The portions are generous, however this can be inconvenient when you don't readily have anywhere to store leftovers for the rest of your day. The Crow's Nest offers Chinese and Thai inspired meals. All the hot food and hot drinks are done by 3 or 4 pm. I have found this to be a bit discouraging and inconvenient as a student of evening classes - I can be on campus until after 10pm! The Culinary department runs a classy sit-down restaurant that has great food that is limited to lunch time offerings. The express lunch bar run by the culinary department is by far the best deal on campus for a hot lunch. You can purchase a whole fresh cooked meal (one entree, two sides) for $5.00 and they'll pour you a glass of ice water for free. Offerings from the express bar change weekly and usually follow a regional theme (Mexican, Greek, Italian, bbq). The culinary department also runs a bakery that offers reasonably priced pastries, baked goods, and even house-made ice cream.
