Have you been that student who has no idea where to go off campus for breakfast, lunch or dinner? Is your family visiting you and looking for a nice brunch spot? Are you and your friends wanting to celebrate the end of the semester but have no idea where to go for Happy Hour?

No need to fear, Campus Philly is here with the ultimate Campus Eats Guide. We asked students from Philly-area schools to name their go-to places to eat—and after tons of research, we have compiled the best restaurants for you to check out. The best part? It’s based off your school so you won’t have to travel far. Ranging from grand breakfast sandwiches to hot spicy tacos, there is something for every student!

Can’t find your school or have a great recommendation to add? Let us know and we’ll add it right away. DM us!
