    There are two on-campus cafes and one cafeteria though I believe the cafeteria may be closing. It seems that the food is not too bad, but definitely not the best quality.

    The food on most campuses is amazing! you can really tell that the cooks love producing quality products because I have never been disappointed in the quality. Most campuses also have fast food options surrounding them, most even in walking distance!

    At the Virginia Beach campus: They do have a small cafeteria which is open weekdays for lunch. However, most students leave for lunch. There are several restaurants right outside of campus. They have two Starbucks on campus, but they are TERRIBLE. I've gone there 5 times, and each time my coffee was not drinkable. They only hire TCC students, which I guess are really bad at making coffee.

    I have only attended the Chesapeake campus so far, but with the recent addition of the Student Center came The Campus Cup, serving a Starbucks menu. What's not to love about Starbucks? Additionally, there are plenty of other dining options nearby along Cedar road should you require more variety.

    The cafeteria has your basic selection of pizza and burgers. Though Tidewater Community College does has healthy choices also, from the salad bar to hand crafted low fat sandwiches.
