    The cafeteria is a little small, but the food is decent. The best food is from the culinary students who work in the cafeteria; they have pretty fancy selections for a decent price, about 6 dollars per meal (if you don't eat that much it's enough for 2 portions).

    There are 3 different organizations responsible for food and dining at DVC. The school bookstore, the upstairs cafeteria and the downstairs one inside the food court building. The food is pretty good and eatable at DVC. They offer a wide range of delicious multi-cultural food from many countries and containing many kinds of spices and condiments. They offer chicken, meat, fish, vegetables, fruits, light snacks, soft drinks, cold and hot drinks, frozen food, ice creams with a variety of optional toppings and spices on top.

    I've never visited the cafeteria on campus so I can't speak on that, however the book store is stocked up with plenty of snacks and there's even a Peet's coffee.

    It's pretty basic cafeteria food, although the upstairs food is great since it comes straight from the cooking classes.

    The campus cafeteria is nothing more than a high school cafeteria with updated options. The campus bookstore provides better, and healthier, options but is always too crowded.

    The food is great! A very cheap price for a very decent meal. The new cafeteria brings a nice environment for studying, eating and hanging out with friends.

    The cafeteria was done remodeled and it looks great. And the food is always hot. The pastry shop is always filled with good looking desserts. Many different choices, and the menu changes daily.

    Non-existent, as this is a community college, with the exception of the Honor society, who has taken greek letters to represent themselves.
