What Students Are Saying

3.56 Average Rating

The A-2 food is not bad for the price you pay and you get a variety of food ranging from pizza, sandwiches, pastries, coffee, soda, and even soup. My favorite would be the breakfast treats, I would order myself a coffee with a bagel and cream cheese, or if I was feeling fancy I would purchase a mushroom bagel with egg and cheese and some fruit on the side. The best part of having your school located in the bay area is the variety of food you have at your disposal. If you are in the mood for Asian cuisine, Mexican food, Mediterranean, or some burgers all you have to do is walk and your there. I enjoyed walking around and trying different food whenever I could, I would make it into a food adventure. There is a little something for everyone and I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Oakland has an enormous range of food choices from burgers and fries to exotic cuisine.
Cinthia from Oakland, CA
there is a safeway nearby and lots of little restaurants around the oakland campus.
Joshua from Oakland, CA
CCA doesn't have a meal plan, but the on-campus cafe and the nearby restaurants and grocery stores are perfect for a student's budget.
Someone from San Francisco
Go to the bay, bicycle, eat, walk to park and museums.
Alexander from Oakland, CA
A2 cafe is our only dining but it is the best. Both the one on the San Francisco and Oakland campuses are run by the same family. They are the best and you will grow to love seeing them everyday.
India from New York, NY
A2 Cafe has - hands down - the best food ever! There's a variety of food, ranging from Asian to Italian. There's a bunch of different drinks also, from Odwalla to coconut water. You can eat anywhere around campus, but it also depends which campus you are at. Oakland has benches and a bunch of chairs where you can eat within nature. San Francisco consists mostly inside with chairs and tables.
Jaimie from San Ramon, CA
CCA doesn't provide a meal plan but cooking with different cultures is a great way to meet new people.
