It’s taken me well over 2 years on campus to get a grip on all the yummy food offerings. So why don’t I save you the trouble and offer some of my tried-and-true favorites:
1. Joe’s Café, Steinberg-Dietrich. You may not find this on your own, but it’s a beautiful, well-lit space to have lunch inside. They offer sandwiches, soups, & salads, and a lot of healthy snacks like yogurt, hummus, and protein bars.
2. 1920 Common’s: Just past the bridge coming from Locust Walk. Featuring a recently renovated Starbucks, a gourmet grocery store, and a LOT of hot food options. If you have a sweet tooth, I’d poke around here.
3. Farmer’s market! Wednesdays during the spring and summer in front of the bookstore. It’s hard to miss, but you should make a point of getting some fruit, fresh baked bread, and a Popsicle from the Lil’Pop Shop stand.
4. Finally, food trucks. I’ll just list my favorites and you can look them up. Try Twitter for their locations and FB/websites for details: Delicias, Kim’s Oriental, Tyson Bees, Cucina Zapata, Lil’Dan’s, Pitruco.
