    The food on campus is expensive, but there are plenty of places nearby to eat at. You can use your student ID to get a discount at a few places nearby.

    The campus cafe has pre-made sandwiches, veggies, snacks as well as burgers, pizza, rice bowls with veggies and optional chicken. There are plenty of restaurants in the vicinity as well. Among them are a Chinese buffet restaurant, Billy McHale's, Pho Ly, Goji Berry (asian fusion), a pizza place, more pho, Olive Garden, and the nearby Bellis Fair Mall food court.

    Can't really comment on the food as I don't eat there either. I have only had coffee there. I will say it is alright, it is a little on the cool side but otherwise it is alright.

    I wish there were more healthy eating options available that were also affordable to a student. Luckily there are lots of local eating options down the street.

    Food here is economical, but a bit overpriced for the quality. Being so close to a bunch of restaurants i rarely eat at the college.

    The food is a little overpriced, but not bad. I wish that the coffee stand in the science building was open summer quarter. Most the time I chose not to eat on campus, unless I'm desperate.
