What Students Are Saying

4.02 Average Rating
The food is amazing. On a campus visit they gave us meal tickets. Everything is organic, freshly grown, and delicious. There are options for vegans, vegetarians, and the chef accommodates all food allergies.

i toured the met cafeteria, which was awesome. they've got everything you could ever want. they even had a little miso soup dispenser / bar.

if you're looking off campus for somewhere to eat, after my tour, a student recommended geoff's sandwich shop, which was excellent. the sandwiches they have there are creative and delicious. the service was great, too. they replaced a bag of chips for us free because we didn't like the flavor of the one we bought.

there are also a couple of student-run cafes, which can be a work opportunity.

Coming from the Bay Area in California, I knew the food wasn't going to be like anything at home. The food here is fine if you don't really mind or haven't experienced top notch dining. There are some quality restaurants in the area though.

The food is generally good here, the big cafeteria gets dull by the end of the year but otherwise it's fine. The freshman meal plan is awesome.
Clara from Providence, RI
Cafeteria food is quite good compared to other schools. Quite a variety of choices of menus and also for vegetarian.
Julie
the food is amazing with great options, especially vegetarian. they stress locally grown, fresh produce so everything tastes great. also, you can use your dining card in some restaurants off campus, which is also great. or, you can go to one of the many restaurants in the area.

The food is ok, but compared to Brown University, the food is pretty good and a lot of the chefs are either current students or graduates from Johnson and Wales Culinary School
