More great eateries

There are two excellent Indian restaurants in town: one just a door or two away from Prairie Lights bookstore (Masala Indian Vegetarian Cuisine, 9 S. Dubuque) and the other--India Cafe, 227 E. Washington St.--a block or three due east of the Ped Mall. I also love The Bread Garden, 224 S. Clinton, which is up the hill from the classroom building and to the right about 1-2 blocks. It's a cafeteria-style place featuring yummy home-made soups, sandwiches, and salads, along with desserts 2-die-4; you'll find many ISWF folks there at lunch time.

I found another one!

The Pita Pit, near Atlas on Iowa, has awesome, fresh pitas with good protein in it. You choose from a wide range of fillings. Good for a quick bite, which is often all I got here at the Summer Writer's Program!! So much to do...you know what I mean.

Re: I found another one!

just another vote in favour of the co-op. :-)

i lived on co-op food and java house coffee my two weeks there. a sandwich and fizzy water and piece of fruit will cost just over $3 at the coop. nice and cheap, vegan and organic. yay.

also, if you need laundry detergent, take an empty container to the coop and get laundry detergent in bulk. it cost 11 cents for enough detergent for two loads of wash. can't be beat.

z'marik's next to prarie lights has nice bowls, varying from pasta (which i didn't try) to asian.

brown bottle was also good.

warning about cottage inn: they sometimes use lard in their pastries. i learned this from getting really sick on what was supposed to be a vegan pastry. it contained some type of animal lard. so if you're veggie, i'd steer clear of their baked goods.
