Sitting right next door to campus and the conference center, the West Bank neighborhood offers plenty of dining options. Lots of patio dining for summer. If you don’t see anything you like here, a little advance planning can get you a wide variety of food through the Bite Squad.
Afro Deli – What the name says. Selection of Somali and northern African/Middle Eastern dishes. Very vegetarian friendly. Limited vegan options. Rice-based dishes should be gluten free. Closed Sunday. (Yelp)
Chipotle – What can we say? It’s Chipotle.
Lucky Dragon Restaurant – Standard budget Chinese restaurant fare plus lots of Vietnamese options. Vegetarian friendly. (Yelp)
Republic Seven Corners – Upscale pub food (and noise) and award-winning beer selection. Limited vegetarian and vegan options, but the mock duck tacos come highly recommended. Brunch menu at lunch time on weekends. Gluten-free options. (Yelp)
Triple Rock Social Club – It’s a bit of a walk from the conference center, but if you like your classics with spice and tattoos, this may be the place for you. Live music in the evenings. Very vegetarian and vegan friendly (poutine!). Limited gluten-free options. (Yelp)
West Bank Diner – All-day breakfast (no pork products) with a mild African twist. Vegetarian friendly. Gluten-free options. (Yelp)
