Santa Cruz has some great restaurants worth checking out as soon as you get here. For such a small town, there is a variety of flavors and options, and every student has his or her own personal favorites. College students generally like cheap food, and the lowest-priced places in Santa Cruz are the taquerias or pizza joints. Sushi and Thai food are also popular in Santa Cruz, and there are plenty of restaurants to satisfy cravings for these Asian delights. Several good breakfast places are scattered throughout Santa Cruz, with the favorites being Café Brasil and Santa Cruz Diner.
When it comes to off-campus eateries, Santa Cruz has everything from fine dining to stuffing-your-face-with-cheap-food restaurants. There are restaurants with only vegetarian and vegan food, and there are also places that serve hamburger and steak sandwiches. When living in the dorms, eating off campus in Santa Cruz can be a wonderful break from the dining halls. Since the only on-campus food place not affiliated with the school is Joe's Pizza & Subs, going off campus for food is a treat. When friends or family come to visit, walking through downtown Santa Cruz can offer many food places to visit and show the uniqueness of this awesome city.
