    If you like meat and fish, you probably should not be looking into PUC. The menu is strictly vegetarian. They also offer vegan and gluten-free options, but you have to ask about that. The Dining Commons (cafeteria) usually serves three different types of meals: traditional, exhibition, and international. Traditional is usually grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup, handmade pizza, lasagna, and so forth. Exhibition is a pick-and-choose kind of deal. You decide what you want. The food is prepared on the spot and served. This usually includes pasta, veggies, fried rice, noodles, omelettes, etc. The downside about exhibition is that the line is always very long. International is international food, such as curry, bibimbap, chow mein, etc. Sandwich station is where you can custom order your sandwich. Salad bar is pretty extensive and has a lot of stuff to choose from. They also have soups of the day. HUGE selection of juice/sodas/energy drinks. Lots of different ice cream. A la carte is usually premade sandwiches, prepackaged meals and salads. There is always fresh pastries and bread and desserts and such. Look out for Hawaiian bread during the Spring quarter. They usually bake it nearing the end of the quarter and it's delicious, but it sells really fast, so make sure you get a loaf or two. They have taqueria every night, which is basically a nacho/burrito bar. The Grind is a coffee/tea/every-other-drink-you-can-think-of joint where people usually chill to do homework or hang out. The Grind offers a lot of variety in the items they sell: candy, healthy snacks, frozen foods, yoghurt, Naked juice, sodas, energy drinks, vegan sandwiches, cereals, microwaveable foods, and other stuff. The food in general is pretty good.

    If you want to eat fake vegie meat a lot, which I believe is really unhealthy, then go for it, but you can eat a good breakfast there and also great salad bar. Drinks are expensive so beware.

    All of the food served in the cafeteria is either vegetarian or vegan. Recently it was nominated for having some of the best vegan food compared to other campuses. Sometimes the food can get a little repetitive, but its still good. There is a deli sandwich option from Monday to Friday for lunch, and a salad bar everyday. Below the cafeteria is a cafe that serves coffee, tea, hot chocolate and other drinks and snacks. Typically, the cafe is a place to hang out and where social activities take place.

    PUC offers a wide variety of food options for its students. In its cafeteria it generally has three meal options as well as a sandwich and salad bar. The cafeteria also has a wide variety of snacks, drinks, ice creams, and fruits. Below the cafeteria there is a â??coffeeâ?? shop that has a wide-variety of premade sandwiches, snacks, coffee, and tea (hot and cold). Overall, PUC has a pretty large variety of food options for its students. But larger than PUCâ??s campus, it is also located in one of the best areas for dining. Within 30 miles, you will be able to find Mexican, Indian, Thai, Italian, coffee shops, ice cream, fast food, fine dining, and so much more. Whatever your desire for food, PUC has it near by.

    I am giving this five stars not because of the food at school because that deserves a good 3.5 stars. If you are a vegetarian and a vegan then the school food will be no problem. The food is good and you have an assortment of vegetables and fruits and a lot of soups and salads. The food off the hill is amazing, you have Travinge Pizza, Gott's/ Taylors burgers, (so good) Giugnis Deli services the best sandwiches ever. We are also located in the Napa Valley so the dining is to die for you just have to be willing to spend.

    The food in the Dining Commons is kind of repetitive...but it's all right. There's a salad bar and a soup station and then there's usually three different types of dishes per meal.
