What Students Are Saying

3.97 Average Rating
The food at the Caf gets old...but it's pretty decent. Sushi bar on Fridays is the best and once again, Pepp has better food than all the state schools I visited. It's not 5 star dining but let's be real, the freshman 15 is part of the college experience.
Camila from Encino, CA
Personally, I really enjoy the food at Pepperdine. The cafe serves a variety of food from pizza to soups to frozen yogurt to pasta to anything really. However, the food can be a little bit expensive, but the view of the cafe overlooking the Pacific Ocean makes it well worth it.

There are 10 different places to eat on campus. The Waves Cafe is the main one, offering lots of options, including vegan and gluten free. They like to switch things up often and it keeps you from getting too bored with the same old food.
