What Students Are Saying

3.92 Average Rating
The menu is vegetarian, but the food is really good and diverse. We can go from sushi to pupusas in the dining hall.
Vontavia from Compton, CA
The food in the cafeteria at La Sierra is so delicious
Hannah from Eastvale, CA
The food here is vegetarian, so it may or may not be something new to you. The veggie food here is not bad, they have a buffet-like service. I am not vegetarian and I have gotten used to the food. They change it up everyday, from Mexican food to Middle Eastern dishes. You learn to live without meat, which is healthier for the body. I have heard that La Sierra offers way better food than other schools, not to brag or anything.

Food gets boring after awhile. Lots of different options though.

The food is all vegetarian, but do not get discouraged if you are a carnivore! The food is actually delicious. If you are dorming you can eat in the cafeteria with a meal plan as well as at the Eagle's Nest which serves food to order like sandwiches and pizza. For commuters, I recommend the Eagle's Nest because you just pay with cash for the price of what you are buying, rather than the $10 fee for the Cafeteria.

Good cafe food with many healthy choices
Kelian from Colton, CA
La Sierra only offers a vegetarian diet which is great for vegetarians, but not for us carnivores! However, the do offer a wide range of healthy options and always perfectly ripe pineapple.
