What Students Are Saying

4.18 Average Rating
Wonderful salad bar! Fresh food! Yes, it may be redundant, but this is the best food on a college campus I have experienced. Sandwich bar is great too!
Nicole
the dining commons offers plenty of options, and rotates their menus often. scu strives to make responsible choices even when making food. they choose ingredients from reliable sources that promote sustainabe and ethical eating. of course, eating at the same place can get boring. santa clara has many restaurants located just outside of scu within walking distance.
Raymond from San Jose, CA
The food served on campus is not great, but it is pretty good. There is a decent amount of variety in the form of customizable stir fry dishes, classic cafeteria food, fresh salad bar, brick oven pizza, Mexican food, Italian food, and bakery. Nightly dinner lunch and dinner specials keep your choices open.
Logan from CA
Bon Appetit makes the best food for students daily with the best ingredients possible. A lot of people complain that it gets old, but people obviously have never visited other schools with cafeterias. We have Benson and a legitimate catering service with an entire French pastry chef and his team making all the baked goods in house.
