The cafeteria where I went to college was small, crowded and messy, and boasted a boring salad bar with browned lettuce and at least eight daily varieties of chicken (patties, nuggets, fingers, burgers, etc) that neither looked nor tasted anything like chicken should. Chelsea's Cafeteria is similiar in that - no, I'm just kidding. Chelsea's cafeteria is similiar in no ways at all.

The food here, unlike at college, is gourmet-ified comfort food: think green eggs and ham (scrambled eggs, goat cheese, pesto and country ham spilling out of a buttermilk biscuit), mac and cheese spring rolls served with a creamy smoked gouda dipping sauce, and the black kale salad, tossed with dried cranberries and shaved ricotta and drizzled with a light lemon vinaigrette. The space is ultra-modern and trendy but comfortable, and the prices are across-the-board reasonable. Great for a quick weekday lunch or dinner.
