Bistro By the Sea
Marymount California University partners with Bon Appetit for on-campus food services, including restaurant-style cuisine at Bistro by the Sea, the main Oceanview campus café.
Their philosophy is simple: food service for a sustainable future. That means cooking made-from-scratch menu items with seasonal ingredients from local food growers.
Diners can enjoy hot breakfasts and homemade pastries, farm-to-fork produce, salad bar, soup of the day, chef’s specials, traditional fare and authentic global cuisine, vegan and vegetarian selections, made-to-order deli sandwiches, freshly baked desserts, and convenient to-go snacks and drinks.
The Bistro by the Sea accepts student ID cards for meal exchange, café cash and flex dollar purchases, as well as cash and credit cards.
Outtakes, a convenience store located at The Villas, offers snacks, beverages and sundries. Outtakes accepts cash and credit cards.
