The school year is finally gearing up, and it’s safe to say students’ wallets are gearing down. With the plethora of food available at the expense of a short walk through the cold, students are flooding our local favorites, be it the before-school dash to 7-Eleven, or a well-deserved Dooby’s cookie after classes. Specifically, HH Tea has been a real money drainer for the general BSA population.
Specifically, HH Tea has been a real money drainer for the general BSA population. Their diverse bubble tea options keep the crowd coming back for more. The satisfying break of the drink’s seal and refreshing taste of boba creates the perfect post-school treat. It’s a short walk from the building, roughly 10 minutes. Just enough time to craft your order for the day.
It’s a short walk from the building, roughly 10 minutes. Just enough time to craft your order for the day. You can choose from a variety of teas, (milk, fruit, and yogurt) and flavors. Coming from an indecisive orderer, you really can’t go wrong.
Any combination of jelly, boba, or foam ultimately creates a satisfying end to the day. For a student, these drinks are not cheap, ranging anywhere from $3.75-$7.50. But it’s not a loss if it tastes delicious!
Never on Sunday, located on the corner of Charles Street, also deserves a worthwhile mention. It’s always flooded with students after school, a place to stay free of the cold and indulge in deliciousness. At first glance, their menu is overwhelming, but the regulars know what to look out for.
The regular fries are subpar, but the waffle fries and honey mustard combo make coming to school worth it. Not to mention the loaded fries, pizza fries, Greek fries, and sweet fries.
When you take it back to the classics, their pizza slice is a perfect mesh of cheesy goodness and beauty, and it’s the size of the box itself!
The pizza isn’t the only massive item on the menu. The cake slices are right out of Matilda’s chocolate delight, larger than the screen itself.
Don’t be fooled by the constant talk of their pizza and fries, they actually have a wide variety of foods, ranging from pasta to paninis.
While you may not be ready to have a full Buffalo chicken wrap after school, Never on Sunday is definitely worth a visit for a lunch or dinner date. I’ve been on one too many dates with that store already!
While we’re on the topic of pizza, Piazza 27 on Cathedral Street has to make an appearance. They have everything pizza, with a stellar grilled chicken pesto pizza and an even better margarita. Similar to Never on Sunday, they also have a wide variety of other foods to choose from.
Soups, salads, and Stromboli’s swirl around the menu, encompassing the thoughts of hungry students from every classroom. If you order online through their website, you’ll receive a 5% discount, shaving off those extra dollars. Give them a try, or two, or three!
Elaborating on all the stores around BSA would be impossible, everything is simply too delicious to decipher! But these three shops deserved the first form of formal recognition. Ultimately all it comes down to is good eats, and these are all good eats certified.
