    I just haven't really been impressed with any of the food. The one saving grace is that they have fresh cut fruit every morning.

    This is arguably the best campus food you'll find in the US, you can get freshly made food nearly all day although it is expensive.

    Seattle U has one main eatery and five other smaller eateries. The food, catered by Bon Appetit, is delicious and healthy. There are various options in the cafeteria, so you'll almost always find something you want to eat.

    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.

    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.

    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!
