Top 5 Places to Eat Near Sheridan College in Mississauga
Sheridan College students -- you've been back to school for about a week now and are slowly getting into the swing of things. In the rush to prepare yourself for the academic year ahead, you might have forgotten that school is fun and your campus is awesome. You have a ton of tasty and affordable food options within walking distance from your classroom, so now is the time to Eat All The Foods while your metabolism is still mighty and strong.
Here are the top five restaurants near Sheridan College.
5) Eve Cafe
If you want to breakup your shopping trip with a cool in-store meal, it might please you to know that newly opened Square One department store Simon's is home to a quaint little resto. The cute eatery boasts a French Canadian-inspired menu with a few multi-cultural menu items, such as pork banh mi ($11). The open concept resto seats about 50 people inside and even offers a sweet little patio (take advantage while the weather is still warm!). If you want to get some work done off-campus, the cafe offers laptop and phone charging areas. You can also grab some coffee or tea if you need a caffeine fix.
4) Bliss Dessert Cafe and Bistro
Formerly known as Spin, Bliss Dessert Cafe and Bistro is conveniently located on the ground floor of the Limelight condos on Living Arts Drive. Although this place is ideal for a decadent ice cream fix, it also offers some savory dishes that are good for breakfast or lunch. If you want to stop by for breakfast before class, you can order three buttermilk pancakes ($6.99), an egg crepe with bacon ($12.25) and more. If you're looking for lunch, try the shrimp and chicken crepe for $14.25. If you want dessert, well, the options are endless.
3) Basil Box
If you head over to Square One, you will find a ton of tasty options. Like, a ton. If you're in the mood for a uniquely customizable rice or noodle dish, however, you might want to head into the original section of the food court to try Basil Box. The brand offers diners a ton of Thai and Vietnamese ingredients and allows them to assemble their own box. You start with a base of spring mix, chilled rice noodles, short grain brown rice or long grain jasmine rice, add veggies (corn, sauteed peppers, green beans or charred sweet potatoes), add a protein (chicken, shrimp, steak or tofu) and a sauce (tamarind, peanut, sweet chili lime, Sriracha or penang curry). You can top your meal off with crispy shallots, crushed peanuts, spicy chillies and more.
When I lived in the Capital Condos on Living Arts Drive, Mediterranean Village (which has since become an Osmow’s location) was my go-to shawarma joint and I miss it every day. Also conveniently located on the ground floor of the Limelight condos, the quick-service resto boasts Wi-Fi, friendly service and a ton of affordable dishes. If you're in the mood for a quick lunch, you can get some falafels, a chicken shawarma wrap, or a beef shawarma plate. Good shawarma perfects the college experience; so take advantage of this little gem.
1) Smoke’s Poutinerie
Smoke's Poutinerie, the quick-service brand that offers diners a plethora of satisfying poutine options, opened up on campus just last fall -- so you really, really don't have to go far to enjoy some cheese curds and fries. Now, Sheridan students with a hankering for a pierogi poutine will no longer be denied the privilege of dining on a delicious (and uniquely Canadian) delicacy in the halls of their learning institution. If you want a less traditional dish, you can try a pulled pork poutine, a chicken fajita poutine, a nacho grande poutine and more.
