    I have a joke.

    Why did the hipster burn himself?
    He drank his coffee before it was cool.

    Dough Co calzones, nothing better at 2 AM when you're stoned off your ass.

    Siena Cafe, for that delicious hangover TexMex Breakfast at any hour. Breakfast all day, fuck yeah.

    Voodoo Doughnuts, I only ever get them on tuesdays (coffee shop near my first class on Tuesday has them), or when I'm out near downtown (it is full of juggalos so I do not usually like to go there). So delicious.

    The grocery part of that Thai restaurant I mentioned is weird as shit. I mean they have normal stuff like 20lb bags of rice and crazy asian carrot soda and whatever

    But against the back wall they have two chest style freezers - which are completely and totally without organization - and they are filled top to bottom with random frozen food items with (presumably) thai writing all over it.

    I found a package of some kind of frozen giant bugs. Like huge fucking cockroaches or something - I don't even know what they were. Like six of them lined up in this packaging like you would find chicken breasts in the supermarket.

    The local 24 hour (on weekends) breakfast joint here closed a month or two ago. Now the only place to get breakfast at 2 am here is IHOP, and that's lame.

    Yes, that is actually it's name.
    It's an fairly awesome Asian Fusion Restaurant/Bar thing. No bookings, so you can rock up any night of the week, and while you wait you can have some of their insanely awesome cocktails at the bar.
    Once you're seated, you'll probably be able to see and watch you food being prepared - the kitchen is kinda open plan, and they have strategically-placed angled mirrors above the work bench, so you can see them garnish and spice your meals. The food is good, the service above average and the prices completely reasonable.
    I absolutely love it.

    Dough Co is okay but more than once I've gotten a calzone from them that was way undercooked. Like, unmelted cheese and shit. Still, for late night grub there's not much else that's good.

    Voodoo doughnuts is amazing but their store only takes cash and I never have cash on me when I go there. I really want to grab some from the fishbowl but I'm never on campus early enough on tuesdays to get any :(

    in Eugene I really dig Laughing Planet even though it's a hippie hangout. The food is really good and they do a lot of different ethnic food but manage to get it all right.

    Also Sweet Life Patisserie is the best fucking place for deserts in the world oh my god it is so fucking goooooooooood

    sup UO buddy. The only reason I ever have time to grab the doughnuts on tuesday is because I have billiards as my first class, so I just sit in The Break and drink coffee and eat doughnuts and play pool.


    I still haven't checked out a load of restaurants here yet, what with the stupid meal-plan because I live on campus. Getting so tired of that food at this point, though.

    24 hour breakfast places are my absolute favorite places to eat. Doubly so if they have pancakes and/or waffles, which most do.

    Oh yeah, that would make it pretty hard. I don't go out to eat often because of budget constraints but there's definitely good eats in Eugene. Seriously though, it's really far from campus but you need to see Sweet Life at least once. It is one of the best goddamn dessert shops I've ever been to. That sounds like an awesome first class, by the way. Super jealous.

    EDIT: Also, Yes to marth. Breakfast is the best meal at any time of day.

    A small, tiny Italian style eatery where everything is made from basic ingredients and is owned an run by an enthusiast. I no longer have the patience for bullshit short cuts and reheated nonsense food.

    Honestly, I'm too poor and too good of a cook to eat at restaurants. Maybe once a month I will sit down at a place and order some food. I'd rather spend my meagre pay on good ingredients.

    Fuck off and die.

    The best meal I ever had was at Local 127 in Cincinnati. It's Cincinnati's only redeeming quality. If you're ever forced at gunpoint to go to that butthole city, eat at Local 127.
