Many students tend to like the Palo Alto campus in regards to where to eat because of the variety of places to choose from. Also, location plays a big role - between classes one can venture out to Piazza’s Fine Foods and grab something at the deli. They have a soup and salad bar, and sell pre-packaged entrees, as well as panini’s and ready-to-go sandwiches. Perfect for the busy college student. There is also a coffee shop and chinese restaurant within walking distance from the campus. At the Los Altos campus there is KJ’s Cafe a la Carte Espresso Bar, located in the upper level of the Campus Center East Wing. However, due to the location of the main campus, there are no restaurants within walking distance. The Foothill College main campus is located off I-280 in Los Altos, and their secondary campus is located in Palo Alto on Middlefield Road between Charleston Rd and San Antonio Rd. because both campuses are commuter campuses, they are serviced by The Valley Transit Authority. The number 40 and 52 bus lines run directly to the main campus in Los Altos. The number 35 bus line takes you directly to Foothill’s Palo Alto campus.
