There are many options and types of food offered at Conestoga, specifically in the Doon campus where my classes are. Whatever you are feeling, whether its healthier options or you are just looking for something to fill a craving, it's available somewhere on campus.
Starting in the Recreation Centre, (and personally my favourite spot) it's the Pita Pit. A fun fact about the Pita Pit at Conestoga is that it is not a part of the franchise, so all the money you spend at the location goes back to the school and student activities. Since it is not a part of the franchise, there are daily deals on different types of pitas! My personal favourite is the chicken caesar pita which is a daily deal on Mondays.
In the smaller cafeteria at Doon, known as the ‘Cozee Corner’, there is a Pizza Pizza that appeals to almost all college students, with different types of pizza and dips that you can buy. Along with Pizza Pizza, there is Subway for people wanting a more personalized option that’s not Pita Pit. You are also able to use giftcards at Subway, but you can’t at Pita Pit. There is also an area to purchase snacks and drinks and a smaller cafeteria area for you to sit.
In the main cafeteria at Doon, there are several options. There is Bento Box which serves packaged sushi and other Asian dishes using the freshest ingredients. If you’re not feeling sushi, maybe Smoke’s Poutinerie will suit you better. We are fortunate enough to have a franchise on campus and its attached to Grill & Co, which serves burgers, fries, and breakfast. In the same location, we also have what’s called a Create Station which is a stir fry and pasta bar that offers made-to-order meals everyday. You will also find a self-serve Pizza Pizza and Starbucks as well as On-the-Go options that offer salads, wraps and sandwiches. You can also find a variety of soups and baked goods all in one spot.
I can’t forget that we have a Tim Hortons located in the Student Life Centre. It is always busy there and I recommend ordering through their app, this way they will prepare the order for you so you don’t have to wait in line. A fun fact about Conestoga is that at the Doon campus, we have a “Timmy Cam”. It is a live webcam feed showing you the how long the line is before you walk over. You can access it anytime (on campus networked computers) when you search Timmy Cam on the Conestoga College website.
Last but not least, our student run on-campus licensed bar and restaurant called The Venue. The Venue hosts all kinds of events during the day such as trivia and live music. They have daily deals on drinks and food and it’s a great stop between classes if you’re looking for more of a restaurant sit-down feel.
All of our food services at Conestoga are yummy and we have something to suit everyone's palate.
