    i live off the salad bar, usually the hot food disappoints. breakfast is the best meal of the day by far. on the weekends, they serve leftovers and its really sad. they just built a new cofffeeshop on campus which is like starbucks but better and cheaper.

    Food is like any other college: not so great, but food is food. However, there are plenty of good places to go to that are within reasonable distance.

    I've only eaten at the Caf once or twice. From what I remember it's pretty basic campus cafeteria food. Nothing really fancy.

    They have improved the the cafe from last year. On friday, is new the best day to really go to the cafe. If you go on the weekends, the food usually is not all that great.

    There is always a salad bar, sandwich bar, and tons of cereal. There is also different food outside on the grill and always grilled chicken upon request. Inside the caf there is good variety of food at each meal. The food is nothing special but it isn't bad either. There is also an ice cream machine.

    The Caf has it's days like any other place. When it's own, it's great. When it's off....well you get the picture. There is always the waffle-maker, cereal selections, sandwich/salad bar, and ice cream machine. They have meal replacements in Outtakes if you can't make it to the Caf because of class, as well as other snacks and drinks you can buy with your flex

    The food at Vanguard is flavorful. At times it may get a little tiring and old even, however the Caf has always kept a freshness to its food and the staff does attempt to keep a menu that varies at each meal. Honestly, there are no big issues with the food or service. Even our small on campus store maintains a variety of choices for the students that are often on the rush. Overall I would saw the food at Vanguard is pleasing.
