Tour of The Richard Stockton College: Stop #1, Au Bon Pain

My creation

If I had to lead tours of incoming freshmen and transfer students around the school to coerce them into choosing Stockton, Au Bon Pain would be our first stop.

Psuedo-Gourmet Bakery on campus? YES PLEASE! Eating at college is usually a chore. Being a stuanch flex-itarian doesn't help either. Bringing food from home isn't an option; I'm usually there for two 12 hour days a week.

The only other options are pizza, fried chicken, EXPENSIVE salads or bad sushi. Si, I usually just get a bread bowl filled with vegetarian chili from Au Bon Pain AND after 6pm all of the pastries are 1/2 price. THE BEST.

Looks like I'm going to live on a diet of soup and bread punctuated with fancy baked goods for the next two years, eh?

Oooo, that looks so good! ^_^ I have troubles buying food due to multiple allergies/ intolerances so I used to bring a packet of two minute noodles to uni and then just "buy" a cup of hot water from the coffee shop (they usually gave it to me for free). It was cheap, but I also felt like I was going to get scurvy so I'm glad I didn't have to do that everyday! ^_^

You sound like a character from a Dickens novel, eating gruel out of a bread bowl. (It hurts my heart, Robbie.) If you ever need a Clif Bar or something more substantial, find me.

oh that looks so good! at my school there were just crappy chains on campus, and all serving food that was even worse than their chain fast food counterparts. i would have loved an option like that.

Better than what I remember eating in college. The cafeteria used shorting as frosting on a cake.
