And so, we have reached the end of Rhetoric and Civic Life.
It has been a pretty good year, but I know I am ready for it to end.
But, before you go, how about one last restaurant suggestion? This way you’ll be able to start off the next year right! Or, if you are like me, have an idea of where to eat while you are stuck here all summer lol.
For my last suggestion, I want to talk about a place called Irvings Bagels.
This place is located right on E College Ave, across from Old Main. Since it is so close to the center, it is a great place to meet up with friends from different housing areas! The address is 110 E College Ave, State College, PA in case you wanted to put it in Google Maps. However, it is not a very hard to find cafe.
The outside appearance may make it seem small, but it is actually quite large on the inside. There are almost always seats available, but in case they are crowded you can always go downstairs where they have more tables!
The interior of this cafe it pretty cozy, yet does not feel overcrowded. The wooden floors give it an almost homelike feel, as well as the couches and books that can be found on the downstairs floor. While I am no interior designer, I feel as though the color scheme really helps the place feel more open and inviting.
The food tastes pretty good, and the service is fast as well! When I went, I ordered a Grilled Chicken Pesto sandwich, and I only had to wait about maybe ten minutes for it to be made. If you factor in the detail that they actually had to grill the chicken, it really wasn’t that bad of a wait time!
Although the name of the cafe, Irvings Bagels, may suggest that they only serve breakfast, this is not true! As I told you earlier, I was able to purchase a sandwich, but even that does not set the limitations of this place. They also serve a large variety of yummy sandwiches, soups and salads, along with great smoothies. Here is a link to their menu: http://www.irvingsstatecollege.com/instore-menu/
I highly suggest giving it a look.
Another cool thing about this cafe is that they also cater! So, if you are having an event and really want to have some good food at a fairly inexpensive cost, definitely consider Irving’s Bagels!
I hope you all found this informative and have a wonderful summer! I most likely won’t be continuing this, so I just wanted to take this moment to say goodbye. Its been real.
