Off-Campus Dining: There are a number of good places down the hill, although they can be a bit pricey.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: You have many places to eat: Gilbert's, Simon's, Skillman Cafe, Marquis, Upper, Lower. They all have pretty decent food (as far as campus dining can go), but after about a month or two, it all begins to become mundane. That's where local restaurants like Campus Pizza, Cosmic Cup, Subway's, and Wawa come in handy.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Good but Expensive – Campus Pizza has amazing pizza but is really expensive. It's also a wonderful hangout spot that's literally across the street from campus and a lot of athletes hang out there in the evenings and sororities like to have parties there with karaoke sometimes. Wok 'n Roll has great Chinese food but for delivery you have to be willing to spend at least 15 bucks, and for a college student it's not too wise to do it more than once in a long while. On-campus food can get tiring (but is greeat!) so off-campus dining is good just to mix it up a little, after a while.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Dining Options Off Campus – There are very few fast food restaurants off campus. The only ones are McDonalds, Subway, and Dunkin' Doughnuts. There are a few pizzerias and cafes, but besides that, you would need a car or take the LCAT shuttle bus to go to any fine restaurants. The cost is average, and the best ice-cream can be found at Purple Cow Creamery, which offers student discounts.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of Options Close by – The food at Lafayette is not bad, it's just repetitive. After sophomore year, students start eating more frequently off campus. That includes many Italian restaurants a few steps away from the entrance to campus, and some higher scale dining options at the base of the hill.

Considering the size of campus, the number of off-campus dining options for Lafayette students is quite varied. Campus Pizza is barely a three-minute walk from the quad, and is known to have the best pizza around. It also doubles as a party venue for many off-campus occasions, like Greek life events. Three doors down is Cosmic Cup, a dimly-lit café with a cheerful staff and bustling crowds. Lafayette students frequent this haunt for its fair-trade coffee and specialty drinks. This is also a good place for the locals and the college students to mingle. A few blocks away is Morici Restaurant, which delivers to campus and has a great variety of pasta dishes. The menu is also affordable, and it’s not rare to see groups of college students sitting at the long tables, celebrating birthdays and graduation.

There are more dining options down the hill, in downtown Easton. Pricier options include Sogo, a sushi restaurant, and Sette Luna, which is past the circle. Dining places more affordable on a student's budget include Quadrant Book Mart & Coffee House, students’ resounding favorite brunch place. However, for those students who have alternative eating lifestyles, most menus do not cater to kosher, vegan, or vegetarian needs.
