    The food is varied, though mediocre, and there are a wide range of vegan options alongside the typical junk food, but it is overpriced.

    Foothill's dining has never been mind-blowing, but recently they've cut down and down on the number of options, the number of staff working the dining hall, and the amount of food that's made on the spot. It's generic, and while it's filling, you're really best off bringing your own food or eating off campus, especially at these prices.

    There is a cafe located on campus along with breakfast and lunch options. The cafeteria is a large, bright room with a fireplace, and amazing view of Los Altos Hills, and a grand piano for those daring enough to play for an audience of strangers.

    The cafeteria food can be pricey, but there is also KJ's Café and off campus there are shopping centers, coffee shops, and fast food places 5-10 minutes from campus.

    There is a serve-yourself style food cafeteria with a lot of variety. It's very much like an eating hall that you would find on a 4 year college campus. There is also a couple cafes around the campus as well.

    The cafeteria on campus is very nice and offers a wide selection of food items. There is a salad bar, prepackaged food, but also food station where they freshly prepare your meal. The prices are sometimes a little steep, but there is a wide selection for every kind of wallet. There are 2 cafes on campus that provide coffee, sodas, hot chocolate and other goods things and are open everyday from 8 am to 7 pm.
