What Students Are Saying

3.65 Average Rating
The one word that will ring true for cafeterias around the college world is, buffet style dining. There are many choices for different people and that can be a good thing when dealing with kids who all they've known all their life is whatever mom cooks, I'll eat. It is also not as good as mom's home cooking but what chef can compete with mom's homemade insert food here.
Mercer Student
The food at Mercer's caf is alright. Sometimes they have good food but usually the food is just ok. The UC has Chick fil a, Subway, Burger Studio, sushi, and other snacks that can be purchased with dining dollars which are included in your meal plan.
Angela from Macon, GA
There are a lot of options for food, so everyone can be happy with what he or she is eating.
Morgan from Hampstead, NH
The caf is all you can eat buffet style and freshmen are required to get unlimited meal plans. The food is sometimes touch and go but you can always rely on salads, cereal, and bagels!
Beth from Waynesboro, GA
The caf is pretty and diverse, it caters to vegetarians too. There are some food places right outside of campus, as well as restaurants within driving distance
Kia from Mableton, GA
The cafeteria at Mercer is outstanding and if you don't find anything you like there, there are plenty of restaurants on and around campus.
Kelsy from Tifton, GA
The cafeteria serves all meals of the day and has a variety of options for any eater. The University Center also has a food court with fast food places that are good for quicker food. Overall, just try not to be too picky and be willing to try some new things.
Jabria from Lithonia, GA
There are always 5 or more options in the cafeteria available to students everyday. If you choose to go elsewhere, we also have a few restaurants on campus such as burger studio, chick fil a, and subway.
