Art Center in Pasadena's Cafeteria

The Student Dining Room at Art Center College of Design's hillside campus serves great food. Careful driving up, Pasadena cops stand around corners with radar guns . . .

Anyways, I love their quesadillas, and today I was there and got a great Butternut Squash Soup and Tuscan Pesto Portabello Wrap sandwich from the daily soup and daily sandwich special . . . I nominate it as the Best school cafeteria there is in Los Angeles area. It's pretty affordable, the soup is really cheap. I spent $8.25 total, $1.78 for the soup . . . They have a salad bar, they serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They have a special menu that changes everyday and week besides the regular menu also. They serve lunch after 11 AM . . .

  1. Have you already tried Caltech's cafeteria? They have one big one with a variety of food, and a smaller one that has different kinds of Asian food, including Indian. It's pretty good and inexpensive, and the campus is beautiful.

      No I haven't. Thanks for the recommendation. I did think though that their dining room was by invitation only.

        The Athenaeum is members / invite only, but the normal dining hall is open (at lunch time only). I'm not sure the food is good enough to warrant a special trip there, though.

          Well if I am in the area . . . what kind of food does the normal dining hall have?
