Coming back on campus is exciting and almost seems surreal. There have been so many updates and new additions to campus since Spring of 2019, just wait until you walk past Vista Grande! As students come back to campus, the university is especially excited to share everything that Campus Dining has been working on over the past year and a half. This post will serve as your complete guide for what’s new with Campus Dining.
Let’s start with a fan favorite, drum roll please…… the food trucks! Hungry folks can find the Central Coaster, G. Brothers Smokehouse and other SLOcal favorites located outside Mott Athletics Center and on the upper side of Mustang Way. These trucks are meant to serve the surrounding area as building 19, former home of The Avenue, Poly Deli and 805 Kitchen, is being renovated.
Nearby the food trucks there will be a new market featuring grab-and-go items as well as sushi. This little market is tucked away in the University Union where customers can make a quick stop. This market will carry favorite sandwiches from the Market Grand Ave. Deli at Vista Grande as well as fresh-made Ace Sushi.
While we’re talking about new places to grab a bite, let’s go over the new venues! Look out for Scout Coffee Co. in yakʔitʸutʸu, Vista Grande, Health Shack near the library and What’s Cookin’ in Poly Canyon Village. Subway will be opening a second location in Poly Canyon Village as well. Scout Coffee will be near the Welcome Center, just a short walk to Vista Grande which is across the street from the Performing Arts Center. What’s Cookin’ can be found at PCV along with a mobile food truck bearing the same name, that will feature a variety of things from burritos to poke bowls. Lastly, The Health Shack is the newest addition to the Kennedy Library area, a great place to eat mid study break.
Mobile Ordering with Grubhub
Good news, ordering from these venues will be as easy as a push of a button. No really, it is. Download the Grubhub app to for a cashless and contactless payment system. This will be enforced at all venues to keep payments as safe as possible.
