Meal plans can get tedious but there’s more to them than just the Osprey Cafe. If you use your dining dollars conservatively, you can buy fancy meals for yourself all semester long. The key is balance.

Here are some of the best options on campus for when you’re not feeling cafe food:

Chik-fil-a

This one’s totally obvious, but where can you go wrong with a Chik-fil-a sandwich? (You can’t.)

Chopped and Wrapped

This is one of the lighter options on campus where you can create your own salad or wrap. Personally, I’m a sushi person and while the sushi may not be what you’d find at a Japanese steakhouse, it’s pretty good. If you’ve ever had Publix sushi it’s an almost identical substitute.

Chick-N-Grill

You can create your own nachos here. Nuff said. It’s essentially a knock-off Chipotle. You can also create your own burrito bowl, burrito or quesadilla.

Starbucks

Okay, I’ll let you finish, but Starbucks has the best breakfast options of all time. The blueberry oatmeal and bacon, egg, and gouda cheese sandwich are my personal favorites. For lunch, they also have this amazing toasted ham and cheese sandwich. Grab an apple or bag of chips for a filling combo.

Outtakes

A diamond in the rough is hidden in the aisles of the Outtakes closest to the green: fresh made mac n’ cheese. There are also a plethora of pairing options that compliment the warm cup of mac n’ cheese. Opt for a turkey sandwich, ham sandwich or fruit cup to complete your meal. This is also a great place for vegans and vegetarians to grab a quick bite with options like tabouleh and quinoa salads.
