What Students Are Saying

4.03 Average Rating
The food is pretty good. It's from BON APPETITE, and tastes sort of like the chef's apprentice's food rather then the chef himself. Expensive, though, if you live off campus like I do and don't have a meal plan. Most students on meal plans usually have left over money and have their friends dine with them the last week of the quarter to use up all of the rest of their plan money (because it doesn't roll over).
Kinsey from Brandon, FL
The food is magnificent. There are so many options of food with consideration of dietary health such as vegan, vegetarian, and so on. For breakfast there is always an omelet station open or a station with the good old bacon, pancakes, sausage, potatoes, and eggs. You could also opt out to make some cereal, makes some toast, or even have some bagels. Fruits are always available and is always made an option. For dinner the services range from pizza, burgers, chinese, sushi, italian, and more! There's also a bistro for coffee and late night bites!
College Freshman from HI
There is never a shortage of things to do on campus or off when attending Seattle University. Parks, clubs, rallies, protests, concerts, museums, and sports are all things you can participate in to have fun.
Sufia from Mission Viejo, CA
Cherry Street Market which is affectionately nicknamed C-Street is the best place to get a variety of food on campus. It is our main eating area with a bunch of different stations. You can eat pasta, pizza, sushi, burgers, etc. The menu is changed every day so you can enjoy a variety of different foods. There is also a global station that has a lot of ethnic food that I have never heard before, but that taste so good. Also if you are worried that they do not serve rice, but only potatoes because Seattle University is on the mainland, fret not because they have a rice bowl station. If you are vegetarian or vegan there are signs next to the foods that will tell you if they are vegetarian or vegan friendly.
KID
There are many options for vegetarians and vegans which is a major plus and almost everything is homemade. It is easy to eat healthy and be environmentally conscious since the school does compost and recycle.
Kea - Lynnae from Green Bay, WI
There is a large variety to what you can choose from and most of it is amazing.
