Campus Dining Winter - Tapingo
this fall

Campus Dining introduces new eats and new markets.

Welcome back! Campus Dining has been busy cooking up delicious food options with a big side of convenience. The big news is that we have moved Village Market in Poly Canyon Village (PCV) across the street next to Jamba Juice, expanded its offerings and opened a brand new Einstein Bros Bagel inside. Also in PCV, we have re-imagined Canyon Cafe to be the neighborhood weekend epicenter with FriYAY events and brunch on Saturday and Sundays. In the new yakʔitʸutʸu neighborhood, we added Grand Avenue Market, which will feature convenience items, made-to-order meals as well as take-and-heat options, and is slated to open this fall. Come visit and let us know what you think. We are always happy to hear from you!
