    The cafe offers a varity of food from waffles to hamburgers. There is always somewhere to sit. Its a newly renovated cafe so its in really good condition and is kept really clean which is a plus. They have really good pizza and a really good salad bar!

    Here is the deal about the food, IT IS A CAFETERIA! People all over the country at almost every college complain about the cafeteria food, it's not because the food is bad it's because you eat there 3 times a day 7 days a week. Now if we are comparing apples to apples Sterling has one of the best cafeterias for a small college. It was recently remodeled and has had an upgrade in the quality of food. When I talk to people who have eaten at other colleges cafeterias they are always saying Sterling's is way better.

    The food is good. I wouldn't say I like it better than my favorite restaurants, but it is healthy, hearty, and keeps me alive.

    The food there is good, and also healthy. There is a selection to choose from every single day. You most definitely will find something you like and after a great meal desserts are served as well and are freshly cooked by our staff.

    We just got a new cafeteria which looks great but the food is very average, sometimes below.

    The cafeteria is fairly good; the downside is that you are not allowed to bring food out of it, aside from ice cream cones.

    The cafeteria isn't bad at all! And Sterling is also getting a cafeteria makeover along with all new food options coming in the 2012-2013 academic school year.
