UBC's top food spots

UBC is a diverse place and it’s got the food choices to match. Whether you’re satisfied by salads and pizza, or crave cookies or carrots, you’ll find it on campus.

If you're looking for even more choice, you can also check out our full menu of favourite foods or visit food.ubc.ca.



Even though coffee isn’t technically a food, it’s definitely a staple for many UBC students. And you’ll find great coffee at Uppercase! For the sweet tooth, pair your coffee with a pastry or snack. Uppercase is famous for its gooey monster cookies and tempting vegan pastries.


If you ask us, Lebanese food is the best thing since, um, individual pitas. Jamjar's got plenty of vegetarian and meat options that are full of fresh, herb-filled flavour. Pick your dish and get it as a salad, pita wrap, or rice bowl.

Hungry Nomad & School of Fish food trucks


Does food taste better when it comes from a truck? We think so! Get grilled cheese, seared salmon, and more, all on wheels. At Hungry Nomad, find comfort foods like poutine (with pulled pork if you’re in the mood). Or, stop by School of Fish for a taste of UBC’s delicious west-coast seafood.

The Delly


Nestled in the basement of the UBC Student Nest, the Delly serves up some of the best custom-made sandwiches and wraps we’ve ever tasted. Plus, you can get Indian food and salads here (in case you get tired of sandwiches).

Harvest grocery store


Harvest is UBC’s favourite grocery store. Stop by to grab fresh fruit, veggies, and basic groceries while you pick up lunch. Harvest has everything from chia parfaits to gourmet salads, sandwiches, desserts, and take-out meals.

University Village Food Court


University Village is an Asian food feast just a few steps from the main section of campus. Get great value on entrees as diverse as sushi, ph, salad rolls, and Korean fried chicken. This is the perfect spot for hungry students on a budget!


mercante pizza

At Mercante, you can get mouthwatering authentic Italian pizza cooked in a fiery-hot stone hearth oven. Or, stop by for pasta, salads, desserts, and specialty coffees with the same Italian flair. If you’re a breakfast foodie, try the ham or veggie poached egg sandwich topped with fontina fondue sauce. Bring on the cheese!

Koerner’s Pub


Hang out with friends over Koerner’s famous deep fried Brussel sprouts (aptly named “Crackalicious Brussel Sprouts”) and Ph Nachos. They’re good ph’ sho!

Rain or Shine Ice Cream


The name of this place says it all…rain or shine, you’ll find long lineups outside the creamiest ice creamery in Vancouver. Must-try local, seasonal flavours include honey lavender, blueberry balsamic, and salted caramel (our personal favourite).

I hope you’re ready to enjoy the cornucopia of food choices on campus. Happy munching!
