The Claremont Colleges: Harvey Mudd, Pitzer, Scripps, Claremont McKenna and Pomona

From Lauren B., Claremont McKenna, Class of 2012:

Aruffo’s Italian Cuisine
126 Yale Avenue
Claremont, CA

There is nothing on the menu that you won’t like, but the spaghetti and meatballs, gnocchi, and chicken marsala are recommended.

Casa Moreno
101 North Indian Hill Blvd.
Claremont, CA

Upscale Mexican food for lunch or dinner. The bottomless chips and salsa and extra large burritos are the big draw for students.

Some Crust Bakery
119 Yale Avenue
Claremont, CA

A local favorite with coffee, latte, and mochas a la Starbucks, but with a main street feel. Also famous for “make-your-own” egg sliders.
