Opened in 2009, the Student Life Pavilion offers students multiple dining options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Stop by in the morning and enjoy a tasty crepe or waffle. Come in for lunch and sample a sirloin steak or salmon breast. For dinner, feast on freshly rolled sushi, a mouth-watering enchilada or enjoy a brick oven-baked flatbread made to order.
Directly above the cafeteria is Tu Mercado, an award-winning organic market that features a full-scale grocery line replete with locally-grown fresh produce and Fair Trade products. Along with natural dried goods and the L’Atelier sandwich bar, Tu Mercado has all the essentials for preparing your own meals while living on campus.
For those with a taste for something exceptional, La Gran Terraza offers exquisite food in a luxurious atmosphere. Featuring The Grand Dining Room, O’Toole’s lounge and The Terrace, an outdoor eatery, La Gran Terraza gives patrons a dish for every occasion. With La Gran Terraza’s tasty appetizers and Californian Bistro Cuisine, USD offers an extraordinary dining experience right on campus.
Additionally, students and visitors to USD are never far away from a cup of coffee or a quick snack, as five cafés are located conveniently across campus.
