Hi everyone! My name is Brooke, I am currently a 3rd year student in the Bachelor of Design program at Conestoga, and I am very excited to be writing my first article as a Social Media Ambassador!
In the past couple years I’ve spent at Conestoga I’ve been to a lot of places on campus and tried a lot of new things. This includes tons of the amazing food options we have here on campus and I thought I would let you guys know about some of the best
1. Pita Pit
Pita Pit has some amazing food and is located on the second floor of the Rec Center. This is a great healthy option for students who are looking for somewhere to eat between classes, and the prices aren’t too crazy either. My personal favourite is the Chicken Cesar. It’s delicious and a perfect alternative to just having a plain old salad. The lines can sometimes get long though so try to go when they open at 10am or later in the day!
2. Condor Cafe
The Condor Cafe is the main cafeteria here on campus, and is often referred to as “The Caf”. This location is full of many different delicious food options that serve not only lunch but breakfast as well! Some of the amazing options included, Smoke’s Poutinerie, Grill & Co., serve yourself Starbucks Coffee, and my personal favourite, the Create Station where you can create your own pasta and stir fry! Pro tip: ask for a mixture of alfredo and marinara sauce, it tastes amaziiinnnngggggg! There is a cafeteria similar to this on every campus so if you’re not at Doon make sure you find your cafeteria and check it out!!
3. Tim Hortons
I could not make this list without including the Canadian classic. Obviously, Tim’s has your coffee but the food they sell there is also delicious. I love the Turkey Bacon Club, and if you are on a budget remember bagels are around $2 and will fill you up without breaking the bank. But, if you are going to Tim’s, remember to check the Conestoga Tim’s Cam to check how long the line is. You can also conveniently mobile order so it’s ready when you get there!
4. CozE Corner
CozE Corner is the second major cafeteria on campus and is often referred to as “the other caf” or “the Subway one” because not only does it have a Subway but it also has a Pizza Pizza. This cafeteria is smaller but the food options are amazing. The pizza is always hot and the subs are always fresh. The also sell pizza in the Condor Cafe but I prefer to get it here because it’s right out of the oven. Subway is also another great option if you are looking to stay healthy!
5. The Venue
The Venue is a newer location on campus and is our full service restaurant! The first year I was a student here this was actually another cafeteria, however last year it officially transitioned into a restaurant and bar. The food here is amazing and they just rolled out a bunch of new menu items that I can’t wait to try! The prices are always super affordable, and they even have live bands come in and play on Thursdays! This is a great place to hang out with friends whether you want to grab a meal or just sit down for a bit and get a drink.
These are just a few of the great food options we have here at the Doon campus, but they’re some of my favourites. I hope next time you forget your lunch or want to try something new you go and check them out!
