The USC Village will introduce new shops, dining options and study spaces for students, adding hundreds of thousands of square feet to USC to invigorate campus life. The USC Village will include an array of food options for students looking for a quick bite between classes this fall. Some highlights include:
RANCE’S CHICAGO PIZZA
Founder Rance Ruiz wanted to bring Chicago-style pizza to the West Coast. Hungry diners can choose from stuffed, pan or thin crusts on their pizza, and all ingredients used are made from scratch daily.
BBCM Cafe stands for The Butcher, The Baker, The Cappuccino Maker and is opening its second location here on campus. The new space has a sunny outdoor patio and will continue to deliver diversity and freshness in food and drink.
Dulce may steal some loyal Starbucks patrons with its carefully crafted selection of coffees and teas. Pick up a sandwich or salad for a quick, easy lunch. For those with a sweet tooth, Dulce also offers a rotating menu of seasonal doughnuts and pastries fresh from the oven.
Started by three childhood friends, Cava specializes in traditional Greek and Mediterranean food. Hailing from the East Coast, Cava follows the Chipotle-style build-your-own bowl format. Start with a base salad or grain, then add dips and spreads, a protein source and additional toppings or sauces.

Greenleaf follows the farm-to-table concept, where fresh organic fruits and vegetables are delivered from local farms straight to your plate. Salads and sandwiches share a menu with pizza and burgers, but everything is guaranteed to be healthy and delicious.
With the simple mission to “love, heal and inspire,” SunLife Organics whips up organic fruit bowls, smoothies, juices and signature shakes from the freshest ingredients, all locally-sourced.
