  1. Come to the ENV Coffee Shop on the first floor of EV1! Bring your own mug and get $1 fair trade coffee or $0.75 tea. We have $1 fresh baked cookies and $1.25 croissants/muffins every day, $1.50 large handmade samosas, and vegan options from Healthy Foods and More. We also have $4 rice dishes and $3 sandwiches, which will be fresh in stock next Monday.

    Come by! We welcome students from all faculties :)

    1. The ENV coffee shop has the best and cheapest food by far. Pretzel day is the highlight of my week

    2. Mreh. Nothing beats Mac & Cheese Day in the Math C&D, IMO.

  2. Supply and demand.

    Actually, the FEDS coffee shop is pretty good.

  3. Except for the ENV, the Math, Science and Engineering faculties also have C&D's and their prices are all fairly okay. If you are looking for "actual" food then go to the plaza. It's not that far :)

    1. ENV C&D is run by volunteers which keeps their prices cheaper than the other C&Ds

    2. ^ Eng C&D staff are paid and our prices are literally the exact same or cheaper as what you wrote in post #1 so please don't spread false information.

    3. Than other C&Ds? Sorry but Science C&D is run by volunteers too!

    4. Science C&D's selection sucks. They only have snack type foods like doughnuts and chips.

  4. I've looked around and eaten everywhere in the plaza. The only way to have decent food at a reasonable price is to cook it yourself unfortunately.

    That or BK value menu but that gets boring quickly.

    1. Frozen food + microwave all day everyday. It's cheap and gets you the calories.

  6. Step 1: Go to Home Garden in the Plaza. It is near the First Choice and Aunty's
    Step 2: Order 11a/b.
    Step 3: Eat the colossal amount of quality Chinese food that isn't tortured by MSG and grease, all for $7

    Seriously, it is the most cost-effective yet still tasty meal I have found close-by to the university. It is a big plate of rice with fried chicken, two sides (usually veggies and noodles) and a hard-boiled egg that I don't really know how it is made (it is brown and tastes different - I'm white and don't know the difference)

    1. and by 'quality', I don't mean to suggest it is great or fantastic, but it is fine and doesn't make my bowels feel like exploding within 10 minutes of eating it

      Delete
    2. The hard-boiled egg that's brown on the outside: it's egg that's been marinated (typically using some kinds of spices and soy sauce). Hence why it tastes different.

    3. it seems like the only cheap, (reasonably) healthy, (reasonably) tasty option anywhere near campus.

    1. bomber is awful and it's not even that cheap

      Delete
    2. I really like the food at Bomber! But anybody who tells you that food is cheap is lying. You're better off going to the Plaza if you want to save money.

  8. Economics! As long as you will pay for low quality shit, it will always be made available at the prices you are willing to pay
