The chomp: Pascal's Coffeeshop

With finals coming up and temperatures rapidly dropping, sometimes what us students need the most is a nice, relaxing place with some good food for long study sessions. Panera Bread, Starbucks and Dunkin' Donuts can get noise, which can often cause a dilemma for students wanting to find a quiet place to study. Pascal’s Coffeeshop, located on 112 NW 16th St., provides just that.


The chomp: College cooking tips

We’re often bombarded with a ton of food options as the school year begins. This is especially true for first-year students who are amazed at how much food is available in the dining halls. However, soon the barrage of free pizza at welcome events is going to slow, leaving students, especially those without a meal plan, wondering, “Where do I go from here?”


The Starving Gator: Super-sized subs

Hogan’s will always hold a special place in my heart because it was the first restaurant I fell in love with in Gainesville. Years before I became a student, my uncle– a proud Gator alumnus and an avid Gator football fan– told my family about this great sandwich shop he found in Gainesville. All it took was one bite of one of their sandwiches and I was hooked. To this day it remains one of my favorite restaurants in Gainesville and one of my regular places to head for lunch. 


The Starving Gator: Starbucks' secret menu

Have you ever been standing in line in Starbucks and heard someone order some unusual drink that is definitely not on the menu? Maybe they show their phone to the barista at the register and then the barista starts furiously typing on the register, creating what seems to be a pretty complex order. You, my friends, have just witnessed someone ordering from the Starbucks Secret Menu. With over 100 different recipes and growing each and every day with new recipes from Starbucks baristas and customers, this website is sprawling with interesting and unique recipes to try out. I have not had the pleasure of trying every item on this menu, but I do have some personal favorites. A word of warning though: Please don’t try to order any of these drinks by name only– instead show them the recipes which can be found on the website.
