Biola offers an array of different venues for students to meet and eat at. There's Café Biola, which offers continuous dining during the week; however, some students feel a little strangled by Café Biola's obscure, short hours on the weekends. Nonetheless, it boasts the most diversity in dining on campus, housing several stations to pick from. Perhaps the most crowded area on Biola's campus in the early morning and late at night is Common Grounds, which, as the name implies, is the campus's popular coffee shop. Common Grounds is almost a clone to neighboring Starbucks and better to boot—not only in prices, but also in flavors. Found in the business building, the Talon is another coffee shop with similar services to Common Grounds.
Another heavily populated area is Eagles' Nest, the campus's casual diner. Specializing in many different kinds of burgers and sides, the Nest also has a large bar for Mexican food and offers various kinds of Asian food, such as Mongolian bowls, on certain days. This is a great back-up plan if you've run out of meals for the week or want something instantly on the weekends. Also, for those who have special food preferences, most of the food providers on campus keep vegetarians and gluten-free eaters in mind, as well, when it comes to cuisine.
