What do you think about Kingsborough’s cafeteria?
“I am a vegetarian, and the presence of a salad bar is amazing, but prices are a little high. There are a lot of small foods options for somebody who does not have time to sit and have full lunch” – Polina Nedovizina, Business
“What I like about the cafeteria the most is the fact that they have a lot of space to sit and even if it is busy in college I can always find a quiet corner to do my homework or read a book, or facetime my friend. There is space for groups and loners as well” – Olga Pakh, Liberal A
“My favorite food from the cafeteria is probably pizza. It is a little pricey for students, in my opinion. If they could lower the prices, they would probably get more people to buy. They have all of the variety of kinds of food” – Joey Lamar, class of 2016, Book Store Employee
“I generally eat rice and vegetables here; nothing else. The menu fits my preference. It is quite expensive, especially if you are just a student and you don’t have any support from the family. <…> To have some good lunch, it is at least $10, and it is too much, I think” – Maka Beqauri, Liberal Arts
“Cafeteria is a great place to relax between classes. I like that the windows are wide and you have the sea view. The employees are friendly. It could be a little cleaner, but overall it is good” – Aldar Mutulov, Accounting
