During my three and a half years thus far, I have discovered many of the great (and not so great) places to eat on campus. Given that we are our own city, outside the boundaries of Metro Vancouver, practically everything a normal city has is offered here on campus, except that it’s pretty much catered entirely towards students.
Bean Around the World, Thunderbird Boulevard // for coffee, tea, lunch and baked goods.
Biercraft, Wesbrook Village // for beer, drinks, a French-inspired bistro menu and tapas.
Bernoulli’s (now Uppercase), Student Union Building (now AMS Nest) // for bagels.
Blue Chip (now Uppercase), Student Union Building (now AMS Nest) // for coffee, baked goods and campus’ best cookies.
Chef Hung’s Taiwanese, Wesbrook Village // for noodles and Taiwanese cuisine.
Doughgirls Bakery, Wesbrook Village // for homemade comfort food and baked goods.
Five Tastes Chinese Bistro, University Village // for cheap Chinese food (tip: order 2 items + noodles, and add rice for $1).
Great Dane Coffee, behind Allard Law // for baked goods, cinnamon rolls, hot drinks and sandwiches.
Jugo Juice, Wesbrook Village // for freshly squeezed juices and smoothies.
Koerner’s Pub, Graduate Student’s Society // for drinks, comfort food from around the world, pho nachos, ice cream sandwiches and lively music.
Mahony and Son’s, University Boulevard // for lunch, dinner and drinks.
Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt, Wesbrook Village // for make-your-own frozen yogurt and toppings.
Mercante Cucina Italiana Pizzeria, Ponderosa Commons // for fresh, oven-baked pizza.
OMIO Japan, University Village // for cheap, good sushi.
