    Food is sort of expensive. Great food and great service though. All the people are nice very clean and sanitary as well.

    The school is surrounded by so many different cultures like Mexican and Korean that one could just travel a few minutes to find new and interesting foods.

    The cafe and commons on campus has improved some much recently. There are many more options for vegetarians and vegans. They are always open to suggestions and recommendations for some plates.

    I love the cafeteria. There is a variety of food to choose from. There is always a daily special and the salad bar is perfect. If you're looking for a quick snack in between classes, I would recommend the Brioche PBJ sandwhich, it's tasty and very affordable.

    I usually bring my own lunch, but I often buy food from the cafeteria's salad bar. The cafeteria offers a wide variety of (healthy) foods and desserts. I am currently studying at the Doheny campus, which is down the street from LA Live and countless restaurants.

    This college closes really early. All cafetarias close at 8:00 pm which can be a bummer for some people. The food here is good if you like salty food. I think the grill and the sandwiches are the best--only because it is the least salty. The breakfast is quite amazing here (FYI).

    setting up a Meal plan is a requirement, it is included in the tuition fees, thus there is no access to stoves for personal cravings or baking.

    The cafe does offer a variety of food choices for vegetarians, vegans and meat-lovers. The students select exactly how they want their meal: there is a lot of freedom in the menu.

    The school has one cafeteria and they make all the food from scratch. There are days where you have good food, but there are days where you probably won't want to eat anything there. Options are always available such as vegetarian, main entree, the grill, deli and they also have soup and salad bar. Getting food off campus will be very difficult at the Chalon campus because it is on top of a mountain and you need to go 2 miles down the mountain to get near any sort of fast food.

    I've been told by current students that the food is filling, but you'll quickly get bored of it after a while. There's plenty of places to get food on the way to school, though.
