    First Run Cafe and the Mermaid Express are the only sources of food aside from the vending machines. The food from First Run Cafe was pretty good overall (I only ever really got the tuna melt and their french fries, which are fabulous) and the coffees and pastries from Mermaid Express were good for a little snack between classes as well. There aren't very many places to sit during peak lunch hours, though. The small dining area is usually packed and even the benches lining the halls are always occupied.

    The First Run Caf�© offers a great selection of food at reasonable prices and the Mermaid Caf�© is a good spot to stop for coffee or a good drink.

    There's a coffee stand that's pretty good, serving smoothies and teas as well as the normal coffee shop favorites. There's a separate food shop that has made to order grill items, sandwiches, salads, fresh fruit, snacks, and drinks. Numerous drink machines and snack machines are also located throughout campus.

    There food is served in a cafeteria. The cafeteria is always open during school hours and anyone is welcome. If the cafeteria is full, there are also vending machines and a little coffee shop.

    Not bad for a two year school, but definitely not as good as the four year school I attended. One dinning option and a beverage (coffees, smoothies, other coffee type drinks) are available. The food is not as healthy as I would prefer and sometimes a little on the greasy side, but snacks and fruits are also available.

    The food was costly, so I did not eat there regularly. However, the food was extremely delicious, albeit extremely unhealthy. The pizza and french fries are especially popular, and are said by students to be the best pizza and french fries around.
