Got a lunch break but not enough time to head to your favourite city spot? No worries, Ryerson’s downtown locations means there’s tons of options close by! Here is four spots within five minutes of campus that are perfect for a quick and cheap lunch!
Okay, this one is technically ON campus, but it’s always worth highlighting their variety of options, which includes the friendly fiver! Pizza, build-your-own-bowls, the grill (and more) all make this on-campus spot a great cheap spot for a quick grab-and-go lunch!
The Eaton Centre is famous for its variety of shopping options, but right below it is the real attraction, the Urban Eatery. With countless affordable options this over-the-top food court can be your perfect spot for a lunch that will satisfy you every time.
Loblaws (Maple Leaf Gardens)
Coming from a small town this store still amazes me. The former home of the Toronto Maple Leafs (Toronto’s NHL Hockey team) has now been transformed into a Loblaws grocery store. Attached to our Mattamy Athletic Centre, this place has tons of lunch options: a sushi bar, panini’s and a Nutella cafe are just some of the highlights!
Panera Bread is the ultimate comfort food and will give you a great bang for your buck. If you aren’t familiar with this chain, then you definitely should be! Just across the street from our Student Learning Centre this place has quick but really tasty soups, salads and other homestyle goods!
