The charcuterie restaurant and wine bar in the middle of the most college-y block in the city might seem a little out of place, but it’s a breath of fresh air for those of us who have been shopping for a good grown-up neighborhood spot. Salt and Board serves a rotating selection of wines and craft beers, as well as sandwiches, toasts and salads made with fine meats and cheeses. There’s also—of course—the charcuterie board, which includes three cured meats paired with three cheeses that will likely send you into a salty, fatty, blissed out food coma.

Satellite serves up coffee (the Best Coffee, according to Best of Burque Restaurants polls) and tea (make sure to order a London Fog), as well as burritos, sandwiches and pastries. This is a good choice if you’re hungry for a quick bite or need a gift for your beverage-loving friends: We recommend the too-cute travel mugs.

The location still bears traces of its former life as a Chinese restaurant, but Talking Drums is devoted to the varied cuisine of Africa. One co-owner, Alex, mans the front and is always eager to explain the many exotic choices on the menu, from fufu to moin moin. The other, Toyin, works the kitchen to produce the authentic and tasty entrées themselves. Visit the in-house market for all of your West African and Carribbean shopping needs.

This place has awesome staff and a delicious menu featuring some of the most amazing island food this side of the Atlantic. Make up for never taking that Caribbean cruise by dropping in.
Winning Coffee continues to be a University staple. In addition to delish java, this comfy joint offers a full breakfast menu including eggs, quiches, breakfast burritos and bagels. It also has a fairly extensive lunch menu consisting of daily soup specials, salads and sandwiches. The joe and grub are reasonably priced. The people-watching, especially on the streetside, is incredibly entertaining and 100 percent free.
