  • I commute from Poway, and I have to leave early to allow time for traffic, mainly on the West 78. Also, parking can be a hassle, especially around 11 and…

    They have a Subway and a Jamba Juice, but other than there there's a little salad place that's alright, a grill that has mediocre burgers, and a coffee hut. Eat off campus when you can.

    The food on campus is minimal there is about 3 restaurants. If you drive a minute down the street you get a lot of options though.

    Palomar college has very good food choices from subway, to java coffee to bending machines and even a pizza place. In the book store you would also find small snacks such as chips, drinks etc.

    I don't eat at Palomar College, but every time I pass the cafeteria, is full which could mean the food is good. They have a snack bar for students.

    Delicious food, and at reasonable prices. My only complaint will go towards the lack of vegetarian options they have.

    On campus there is a food shack and lunch area that serves subway, pizza, salads, hamburgers and more. Nearby there is Os American Kitchen (Pat & Oscars), Sprouts, In-N-Out, the Money Pit and more.I personally like getting their pizza sometimes or a subway, but snacks can be over priced, in my opinion. If you really don't like the food they serve it will be no problem finding something else close to campus, there are a lot of food places. It is nice to eat outside near the clock tower on a sunny day, and there are plenty of tables in the inside cafeteria area, but at certain times they can be crowded and you will have to ask someone if you can sit at the same table, which really isn't much of a problem, most people are kind and friendly.

    The cafeteria offers many items. If these items do not please the taste of the consumer the school is across the street from multiple restaurants. Food is not an issue at this school.

    There is a subway and a few smaller little food stands, but they definitely could have a better selection.
