You will find on the map references in the May 17th post “Create your own diversions”, a number of local eateries. Some are the ubiquitous chains the sprout like mushrooms in the path of the travelling public, but there are also many unique and worthwhile local eateries, should you want to take in a meal on your own or with a group of friends. Some Drake library staff favorites:
58 Main and the Brockport Diner (also on Main St.), which both do good lunches. Stoneyard Bar and Grill is on Main Street right next to the canal. Weather permitting, you can eat outside. They’re open for lunches and dinners, with a full bar and some yummy sandwiches and fries. The Golden Eagle, at the junction of Rtes. 19 and 31, gives you large portions, homemade, and a number of healthy options. Back to Main St., Java Junction has great coffee (fair trade), homemade pastries and desserts, and wonderful salads and paninis, with free wi-fi to boot. Colleen’s Cafe does great breakfasts, if you want to get off campus for a breakfast one day; they open around 6 AM. Jimmy Z’s Texas Hots has all the usual hot dog/hamburg fare, plus some interesting additions–try the jambalaya. Mythos Cafe is a small Greek restaurant with a peaceful ambiance and great food. If you are up to a bit of a drive, Rohrbachs is a local microbrewery that is worth visiting for the beer and the wursts; they are at 3859 Buffalo Road, about 15 minutes east and south of the campus.
