    There are about 3-4 snack/drink vending machines that offer a variety of drinks and snacks. In addition, Cerro Coso has a Pony Expresso kitchen with good breakfast croissants and lunch sandwiches. Further, at the base of the hill where the college is located, we have Walmart, Albertsons, Jack in the Box, Subway, and a Mexican food place.
