Let’s be honest, college students are lazy. At the end of a long, hard day sometimes all you need is some good food and a nice sleep, and dining hall food just doesn’t fit under the category of “good” all the time. That being said, here are some of the best restaurants in Ithaca that will deliver delicious comfort food straight to your door:
1. Luna Inspired Street Food
This place has the most delicious food that is well worth every penny. The best part? They deliver all the way to IC and quick enough so that your food is still warm. They offer so many exotic foods from bao to arepas to Hawaiian pizza, but they also have your classics like pizza and pasta.
2. D.P. Dough
If you’ve never had a calzone before, you’re in for a treat. D.P. Dough serves divine calzones as big as your face and stuffed with toppings of your choice. You can build your own calzone with your favorite type of cheese and toppings, or you can order one of their signature “zones” delivered right to your dorm. What could be better than carbs and cheese brought right to your door? You don’t even have to move!
3. Collegetown Pizza
Again with the cheese and carbs, if you’re in the mood to consume something with sauce in that combination, aka pizza, then this is the best place to have piping hot pies delivered straight to you. It is a little on the pricey side so try to get a bunch of friends together and pig out; it will be worth it.
4. Insomnia Cookies
It’s 2 AM and you have deep, intense sugar cravings that can only be satisfied by a warm chocolate chip cookie and some milk. If this sounds like a common occurrence to you, why the heck have you not been ordering from insomnia cookies? They are open until 3 AM and they too will come to your dorm with whatever you are craving, whether that be one single type of cookie or a dozen assorted cookies. Take advantage!
5. Waffle Frolic
This is for those lazy Sundays when you just want some carbs loaded with sugar. Waffle Frolic will deliver waffles and even coffee right to your dorm and make you grateful that we live in a world where waffles have joined the realm of takeout.
So next time you feel like your food standards are restricted by the sometimes gruesome dining hall food, refer to this list. Eat some great food and keep enjoying that lazy college lifestyle that Ithaca so graciously provides!
