What Students Are Saying

3.97 Average Rating
At first, the idea of an unlimited meal plan intrigued me. Unfortunately, I started growing tired of the food at FFC (the cafeteria). I don't think the food was bad; everyone was just expecting more of the food. Sure, there's other places to eat, but you have pay for those (outside of the meal plan money). On St. Paul, there's a lot of places to grab food (Subway, Chipotle, Uni Mini, etc.).
The food is actually really good. The variety, however, is not. There are great off campus choices that are in walking distances that are very popular.

Here's where I start getting picky. I love my school, and I'm grateful for the meal plans, but the food they provide is generally... well, not the best quality. I ate their eggs for breakfast and I felt sick afterwards. The bread is stale. Always. The one good thing about our cafe is the Home-Style food they have. Hearty mashed potatoes, green beans, and sometimes exotic dishes; those are your best bet. Either that or the pizza. The pizza is pretty popular too. Those aren't your only choices though. Being in a city, there are MANY restaurants around the campus including Subway, a Ledo's pizza, Chipotle, a Starbucks, a Korean place, and many, many cafes.

Hopkins offers more or less your typical college food. The Fresh Food Cafe is the go-to place for all-you-can-eat buffet style food, and it's also the place where freshman take most of their meals. Levering Cafe is great for lunch, and Charles Street Market is the perfect place to pick up a quick snack or a few groceries. Variety isn't a problem because there's something on campus for everyone, and the local restaurant scene is phenomenal. The meal plans are quite expensive, however, and you may often feel like you're not eating your money's worth.
