What Students Are Saying

3.90 Average Rating
Nicholls State University's cafeteria offers a variety of different food to choose from. From themed cuisine to pizza and burgers, there is something for everyone. The cafeteria also offers a salad bar and a sandwich line for the health conscious athlete, so that there is something for everyone to munch on. The union also offers a variety of places to eat, including a salad buffet, sandwich shop, pizza place, and a burger joint. There is so much to choose from, you literally can eat something different each day of the week, not to mention the breakfast is delectable.
Abbie from Des Allemands, LA
Steak night in the cafe is always amazing! If you ever have any early classes and have a break in between them I highly suggest you get breakfast in the cafe, their omelette is the best. Fried chicken Wednesdays and Fish Fridays are also delicious.
Nicholls Student from New Orleans, LA
My personal experience with the food and dining at my college is fairly decent. I enjoyed a lot of their desserts, the drinks are never flat, and the pasta was quite delicious. I didn't run into any problems, however, I do believe that they should have a few more options in terms of dishes.
Faith from Morgan City, LA
The food in the cafe is healthy and nutricional. However if your the type of person that like to cheat on your diet you can come too. The student cafe has a burger grill, sandwich/wrap deli, and pizza buffet.

food and dining is not horrible here but it can be pretty good depending on what they are cooking.
