Dining options on and around City College’s main campus for hungry hungry students

As the morning mist begins to evaporate and a spring breeze starts to blow across City College’s campus, the echo of footsteps can be heard as students exit classrooms.

The time: noon. The mission: lunch.

Students and staff need not be limited to only the cafeteria at City College. The area surrounding City College’s main campus offers a variety of quick and easy food choices.

The on-campus cafeteria caters to students and provides easy access to different food options, whether it’s a quick coffee before class or a more substantial meal.

Elizabeth Silva, a theater arts major at City College, said she eats at the cafeteria three to four times a week because the food on the campus is convenient.

“[The cafeteria food] is fast and efficient, and I haven’t gotten sick from the food from here,” said Silva. “But I think they can have more variety on vegetable options.”

Another nearby choice is Espresso Metropolitan, commonly known as Espresso Metro or Metro, located next to City College in Land Park. Espresso Metro offers an array of food and beverages from specialty espresso drinks to coffee to homemade baked goods and soup.

Lhiannan Buck-Gay, a women’s studies major at City College and barista at Espresso Metro, said that Metro serves a wide range of customers, including students from both McClatchy High School and City College, as well as residential customers.

The Sandwich Spot, located in the same building as Espresso Metro, offers sandwiches, soup and fresh-baked cookies.

“We want to fi ll our community with sandwiches and love,” said Daniel Gasparini, the Sandwich Spot’s store

Another option for students who want to eat off campus is Sushi Café, located less than a mile from City College on Freeport Boulevard. Steven Luong, a manager at the restaurant, said Sushi Café has hundreds of different sushi rolls and up to 20 different homemade sauces. Menu items include bento boxes, steak, noodle soups,
sushi rolls and rice bowls.

“We want to make our customers feel welcome here, so we provide customers the option to create and name their sushi rolls,” said Luong. “We also offer soy and cucumber wrap options for those with seaweed allergies.”

Burgess Brothers’ is a burger joint just across the street from City College on Sutterville Road. It serves barbecue ribs, brisket, chicken burgers, sandwiches, salads, and much more. City College students can receive a 10 percent discount with student I.D.

“Almost everything on our menu is $10 or less,” said Chelsea Cookson, a shift manager at Burgess
Brothers’. “The best choices would be our sliders or smokehouse burgers.”

For those on and around campus later in the afternoon, Track 7 Brewery on West Pacific Avenue, across Sutterville Road from City College, has a rotating schedule of food trucks that stop outside the taproom.
