What Students Are Saying

3.58 Average Rating
At my week long stay at Sonoma State I must admit the food gets quite tiresome. Like I said I was only there for a week and in a mere week they were already repeating the same meals. I can't imagine eating there for four years lol. But for the money, I guess you can't really complain!
Maribel from Sonoma, CA
Cafeteria food can seem repetitive, but as a freshman living on campus with an unlimited meal plan you can't go wrong. Breakfast on weekends is the best and the fries are always good! If you're in the mood for non-cafeteria food, you're in luck because there are a few cafes and restaurants on campus where you can go grab a quick bite to eat between classes or go have a beer after a stressful day (if you're 21 of course).

The food here at Sonoma Stats is really good! There are a bunch of different places to eat on campus and a lot of different options for people who are vegetarians, gluten free, allergic to nuts, etc. Sonoma State does an excellent job of providing food that tastes good but are still nutritional and healthy at the same time. Snacks are also always available with a wide selection to choose from.
Zoey from San Francisco, CA
There are several food options located on campus that provide tasty meals in between classes. My only complaints would be that not all dining areas are open past four o'clock and there is a lack of ethnic foods available on campus. However, only a mile down the road there is a great supermarket with lots of delicious food!
Andrea from Folsom, CA
The Cafeteria serves a very diverse menu of food ranging from Cereal to Salmon with Mango Salsa; however, always check the menu before you commit to eating there! Ameci's, Charlie Brown's, and The Pub are other dining venues on campus which offer a variety of foods such as pizza, sandwiches, and smoothies.

The dorms here are the most spacious and well kept of all the CSU's. You will not find anything better in California (public schools anyway)
The Kitchens, our brand-new dining facility, is awesome. There are so many types of food, you can never get bored. It's fresh and healthy and locally-sourced too. You can grab a muffin and coffee or get Indian food, a plate of pasta, soup and salad. There's a chef's demo station, pizza and salad, a grill station, a garden station, there's Sizzle (Mongolian BBQ) and Passport (International cuisines).
