6 Local Places to Take A Food Study Break

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at BC chapter.

Hard to believe this week is the last week of classes and finals are just around the corner! Here are some spots you can use for the inevitable food breaks you will be taking.

White Mountain

Looking for a dessert break? Only have a small window of time you can afford leaving your stuff at the library for? White Mountain is notorious for delicious homemade ice cream that never lets down!


El Pelόn

Everyone’s favorite! It’s close, fairly cheap, and always delicious. Definitely a spot to hit during a study break before you part from Pelόn for the summer.

Deluxe Station Diner

Feel like procrastinating before you even begin studying? Deluxe Station Diner by the Newton Centre T stop is another must have before summer. Check out their breakfast specials and you can even return for lunch during another study break later on.

Union Street Restaurant

Looking for a dinner study break with a variety of options? Check out the Union Street Restaurant also in Newton Centre. I highly recommend their dessert menu as well; the longer the meal, the less time stuck in the library! There’s even outdoor seating to enjoy the spring weather.


Looking for something totally different from dining hall food? Plus who doesn’t love sushi? Hop on the Comm Ave bus and enjoy your study break at Fin’s in Cleveland Circle.

Max Brenner

Have an entire day dedicated to a study break? Definitely take the opportunity to go into Boston and eat at Max Brenner’s on Boylston Street, especially if you love chocolate! Their chocolate desserts are absolutely delicious and their food is great as well. They serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert of course, all of which can include chocolate!



Good luck on finals! And enjoy your study breaks to the fullest!
