Cary St. Market and Deli, a good change of pace

A bit out of the way for most students, this eatery is home to food that feels home cooked. You can pick exactly what you want for everything you order, and what you can order ranges from chicken, to macaroni and cheese, to sandwiches to wraps.

OPTIONS
Meat choices: rotisserie chicken is always available. Pork BBQ, turkey, meatloaf and others rotate. Burgers are cooked upon request.
Sides: mashed potatoes and macaroni are usually available. Assorted vegetables rotate.
Wraps: wheat, white and spinach with your choice of many different deli meats. Plenty of toppings and dressings as well.
Sandwiches: just like ordering a wrap, just say your meat and cheese and whatever toppings and dressings.

WHERE
101 S. Belvidere St. – the corner of Cary St. and Belvidere

HOURS
Monday-Friday: 10:30 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Saturday-Sunday: closed

IF YOU HAVE A DINING PLAN
Swipes for everything, all the time.

BUSY TIMES
As a given semester progresses, more people realize how great the Cary St. Market is and as a result the lines get longer during peak times. Busy times fluctuate due to how many people the location can handle over a short period of time. If a couple large crowds rush at after their 11:50’s let out, the lunch rush will be significant. Some days are quieter and some afternoons get hectic.

QUALITY
Excellent. People agree the burgers are the best of on-campus on-meal-plan options. The cornbread is top of the line, and you will never feel like things are dry, but some choices may be over-seasoned.

RECOMMENDED OPTIONS
It’s a nice change to be able to make your own sandwich or wrap however you want it, so I recommend taking advantage of it.

TIPS
The cool thing is that yo can order things exactly like how you do it at Bleeker, even for the specialities. So if you want chicken and pepperjack, just go over to this place and do it up. You can also
