“It is pretty good in terms of quality but it is pretty expensive and some prices don’t make sense. So, for example, there was a sandwich for five bucks, and then the other breakfast sandwich that was directly above it was like seven dollars even though it comes with the same things . . . it was just a platter, and it is the exact same quantity of food.”

“I think they are pretty good. My only comment would be just slowness . . . the only other food [service] opens at 11 a.m., so the only food you can get at 8 a.m. is at Base Camp…and not a lot of variety there…“

“It is pretty nice . . . gelato is too expensive. It is way too expensive, so I cannot really have it too often, but they should lower the price a little bit so students can have food there more often . . . Some of my friends make lunch at their house and bring it here and eat it at the cafeteria instead.”

“Very expensive and slow lines. I think there could be more variety, and [Food Services] could probably bring in some outside companies that are a bit cheaper like Tim’s [Hortons] that offer the same food and coffee.”

“I definitely think it is okay, but it has room for improvement . . . Mystic closes a bit too early to be honest.”

“They are not bad. I like the fact there is no chain stores, I like the fact that some students work here, but it’s expensive, and I would like it if there was more fresh food options like fruit and vegetables.”
