    There are three cafe areas on campus, ranging from small snack shack with a few things to a coffee shop and deli cafe in the student center. Most people would either eat at home or bring their own food, simply because these can get pretty busy especially around lunch time.

    I have never even looked for food on campus. I am pretty sure there is a cafe in the library and a cafeteria somewhere, however, I have never looked for myself.

    MPC recently had a remodel of the cafeteria and dining area so the food may have been improved but when I was there it was mostly just burgers, breakfast tacos (which were awesome), pizza and they recently put in a Starbucks.

    We have a cafeteria, vending machines, and a cafe by the library. I have never seen the cafeteria open, so I can't vouch for their food. However, I don't use the vending machines because they will eat your money most of the time. The cafe has decent food, but the prices are a little high. Even if there's nothing that suits your tastes at MPC, there are a bunch of fast food places like Wendy's and Taco Bell that are decently close by.

    The cafe located in the library is perfect for a light snack or cup of coffee when you need that extra energy while studying. For a bigger appetite, the cafeteria serves a variety of larger meals. Campus is also located near many restaurants and fast food spots.

    The food and dining experience around the campus is excellent, but the campus does not have a cafeteria.

    A Cafeteria, and a couple snack shacks are conveniently lovated throughout the campus. No need to worey about cooking breakfast if you have a early class or a lunch if your there all day. Its all there for you and you may buy a meal ticket if this is an annual thing for you.
