What Students Are Saying

3.25 Average Rating
Food is typical school food, some days is better then others.
Phoebe from Raymond, ME
Need a little more focus on vegetarian type meals, and less fried-food offerings.
Rinette from Belfast, Maine
over-priced cafeteria food. enough said.
Jenae
The food is great, most of the time, and the dining area is so cool. All you can eat? Yes please! Hello freshmen 30!
Meghan from Wells, ME
the cafe food could be better, but when they do something right.... it's amazing! there are also many cafes on all the campuses that you can get cheep eats
Jessica from Manchester, NH
Big choices, but my schedule on two days does not allow me to catch dinner time early. Towards the end of dinner time not much is appealing, but there is always good soup, fruit, and some type of salad. Not bad for school food.
Matt
My experience is limited to the Lewiston-Auburn Café and the Bailey Hall Café. The former has amazing food, albeit pricy, and the latter serves overpriced mush.
Jasmine from Gray, ME
USM offers a large variety of food. Healthy, comforting, it's all there. They make a pretty nice soup which for us Mainers, is a good thing.
