Dining Options Every NU Student Should Know About

While Rebecca’s Cafe may just be the saving grace of Northeastern dining, there are many other dining dollar and meal swipe-friendly locations for when a dining hall or panini just won’t cut it.

1. Dunkin’ Donuts

Dunkin’ Donuts is a dining dollar-friendly staple for breakfast on the go. While Starbucks will always be a fan favorite, Dunkin’ Donuts, with its two locations on campus, is so much less expensive and offers a larger variety of breakfast foods to pair with your latte on-the-go. Be sure to get in line at least 20 minutes before class starts, though!

2. Café Crossing

The little known cafe just past International Village offers an array of breakfast and lunch items from pastries and oatmeal to sandwiches and lunch bowls. The best part? You can have a hot Starbucks coffee as your drink as part of your meal swipe exchange. The downside: Café Crossing closes pretty early and is only open on weekdays, so be sure to make it in before 5pm!

3. Panera Bread

Not only is Panera Bread a great place to study, but they also accept dining dollars! Enjoy Panera’s comfort food at any time of day at their Huntington Avenue location.

4. Amelia’s Taqueria

Amelia’s Taqueria brings affordable and fresh Mexican cuisine to campus. Their quesadillas are absolutely amazing and they carry Mexican sodas in all your favorite flavors. Pro tip: avoid the long lines on weekends (especially Friday nights!), unless you’re absolutely dying for a burrito.

5. Tatte

The latest addition of Tatte adjacent to Marino has revolutionized brunch culture on campus. While it is a little pricey, Tatte offers the cutest variety of pastries including specialty croissants, muffins, and tarts. Not to mention, they have the best mini cheesecake cups.

Check out the Northeastern Dining page for more options. Bon appétit!
