I love knowing that when I am on campus I can head to Holy Cow for some good eats. They make a great asian food bowl with rice, veggies, tofu and all the fixings. Their commitment to vegetarian selections means that I can trust the food.!

Unique mom and pop organic shop offers food from around the world: noodles (pad Thai, yakisoba, & Italian), falafels, Indian, soups, salad bar and more. Full beverage line up with our own vegan chai, fair trade coffee, local grab and go items and so much more. We bake our own bread and sweet things, and we have real fruit smoothies. Eating well has never been so much fun.

You have to be on campus to enjoy it, but its worth the trek. Website: holycowcafe.com

This place has gotta be Eugene's best kept secret. Apparently only those at the University know about this 10 year old family run enterprise, and that doesn't seem fair! While it follows the University schedule and is only open during the week, its worth finding it for those who care about the quality of their food.

It is 98% organic, with a focus on local produce. Lunch is the busiest time, but they are open until 7pm Mondays thru Thursday, (and until 3 on Fridays).

The menu is very extensive and takes some getting to know. There is the freshest salad bar in town with the best organic ingredients, rotating soups, hot beverages, extensive grab and go items, (either organic or local mostly) smoothies from scratch,and then there's the hot food. My favorites are thai tofu, pad thai, and falafel. There are many completely original menu items, as well as tried and true favorites (like mash & gravy). The food is 100% vegetarian, mostly vegan, and so full of flavor and freshness that many of the customers are omnivores. The vegetables are all so fresh, & the roasted veggies are out of this world.

The prices are all over the place with the most expensive item being the Indian Thali plate, which has all the Indian offerings on the menu for $9.50, and the cheapest hot entree at $4. Their are other catagories like noodles (rigatoni, yakisoba,as well as pad thai), falafels (they invented a couple besides the classic one), tofu/tempeh dishes, and more. I can't remember them all; I'm currently working my way around the menu and haven't gotten bored yet! The menu changes often and some of my favorites have come and gone, but I'm looking forward to what comes next!

Pros: Quality, value, taste, variety, service, music & vibe

Cons: Buried in the student union--can be difficult to park. Closed on campus breaks (except summer)
