American Restaurant
“A family-friendly restaurant on the Delmar/U City Loop. They bottle their own soda. Definitely get a root beer float if you go!”

Grocery or Supermarket
“I love Winslow's home! It's kind of a posh foody bakery / cafe / restaurant. You walk up and order and they bring the food to your table. It's average pricing, not super cheap, and smaller portions than you might imagine. But that's because they grow their own food at their farm. Everything tastes very wholesome! There are vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free options. The bakery items are delicious. The cafe is ok. It's small but I've never had an issue finding a table. There is both indoor and outdoor seating. It's also a really cool gift shop!”

“Another place that started as a food truck, they serve up Korean-Mexican infused tacos at a fast casual price. Try a steak, chicken, and spicy pork taco for 8 bucks! Check out the Delmar area for more great spots to grab a drink, look at 2nd hand shops, or see a concert. ”

Café
“Is there nothing better than finding the best take out place in your city and then further finding out that they have almost every popular version of Eastern Asian drink you could desire? No. This is a simple pleasure and it now belongs to me. I usually get the Anko Bean Milk Tea with - yes, yes indeed! - pudding. ”
