Food scene
The Corner is an easy walk from our house. This is the area students go to eat, to get coffee, to celebrate, to study, to shop and to go to the drug store. A few of our favorites here are Bodo's Bagels, the Corner Joe, Roots and Mellow Mushroom

Bodo's is a local favorite for breakfast or lunch. Fresh bagels, bagel sandwiches, soups. The line may be long, but it moves quickly. My favorite in the morning is an egg bagel with bacon and cheddar cheese on a plain bagel.

Just below the Belmont Bridge, Barbie's Burrito Barn is one of our favorite lunch or dinner picks! It's fresh and it's delicious. It's a cozy spot with 3-4 tables inside and tables to sit outside. Barbie cooks everything herself, including delicious salsa. My favorite is the guac tostada with chicken. Lisa like the chicken taco. You might even see Tess taking orders on Friday evenings. Whatever you order, servings are generous.

You can watch the chocolate being made while you walk up to try out the daily free samples. Incredibly rich chocolate in all kinds of delicious forms. Gregg's favorite is the chocolate torte ... though you can't go wrong with any choice here (if you like chocolate).
