I don't eat the schools food very often, but it was decent, and had a good variety of choices to choose from. I would eat there again if I needed too.
The pizza bar and panini/sandwich area are always reliable and good, but if you are trying to eat healthy or stay away from carbs the meat and veggie area is very unreliable. About once a week, I will say "this is actually good!". Usually though, the food reminds me of Cafeteria food from public school. The Grill station is pretty good too, but can be hit or miss at times. About every other time I go to the Salad Bar, the veggies are old/ slimey/ limp looking. Other times its great. Overall, it is very hard to find healthy, fresh, good, CONSISTENT food at Tusculum College. The only other food options at TC besides the caf is sandwiches, pasteries, and snack food at the Coffee shop. It is overpriced and closes at 10pm. The book store has more reasonably priced snacks, but it closes at 5pm.
The food here at Tusculum is pretty good, all things considered. There is a large variety Monday through Friday, with three meals a day. There is the pizza/pasta bar, the "main" bar, the salad bar, the grill, the international bar, the dessert bar, sandwich bar, and two soups of the day.
On Saturday and Sunday, as well as block breaks, there are two meals offered each day: brunch and dinner. On these days, the "main" bar, the pizza/pasta bar, the grill, and the dessert bar are the only ones open.
There are coke products, tea, high c, milk, lemonade, coffee, and waters available at any meal. There a juices which are only available during breakfast/brunch.
For the most part, the food is usually pretty good and calories are displayed in front of whatever a student picks up. On block breaks, the food is usually the worst.
There are three meal plans: nineteen meals a week, fourteen meals a week, and ten meals a week. With a nineteen meal plan, which is what most students have, a student can eat every single meal. This student receives about fifty-four dollars worth of "Perk Points," which can be used in a lobby in Niswonger Commons. They sell smoothies, drinks, cookies, muffins, fruits in a cup, and more. Each point is equal to a dollar. For the fourteen meal plan, a student will receive about seventy dollars worth of "Perk Points," and with a ten meal plan, a student receives about a hundred "Perk Points."
I'll be honest, the cafe sucks. There are many times where I've walked in and walked out, then go out to eat. It is that bad. But on occasion they will actually have good food out.
Main Cafe Dinning – Not very good not enough fresh fruit and vegetables
