Our cafe is also tragically overpriced for what you get, so you will save a lot of money if you do this. It's pretty common.
I think we might have a different caterer for the cafe next year though so maybe it will be better.
This cannot be emphasized enough. The Refectory (cafe) is not good food, and is very expensive for what you get (which is, again, not good food). Hopefully the new caterer will change things around. But, barring that, your best bet for nearby dining is Fuqua next door or the Bryan Center. Or you can bring your lunch. Because, if I haven't been clear, the Refectory is about five stars short of a five-star restaurant. Good brownies, though.
FWIW we 3L's got screwed because they're replacing the Refrectory with a new company starting next year. Class of 2017 will never know what it's like to eat a sandwich that tastes like a giant block of salt.
But yeah, Fuqua or Bryan center is TCR.
