With the new semester in full swing, now is a good time to review all the different places to eat on campus. The new building in Nador 15 offers two different choices. The catering company, Marsbeli, recently opened a restaurant in the 2nd floor right outside the library with a view of the Daube down the street. If you want a full-fledged, delicious meal then this is your place to be.
The restaurant offers a range of soups and mains along with a variety of side dishes that make up a great lunch. You can also opt for the daily menu which is more cost effective. The cafeteria-style service also offers coffee, fresh smoothies, cakes, and sandwiches for a quick snack. This restaurant is slightly more upscale and slightly expensive than the other options on campus but offers the CEU community a 10% discount on all purchases.
A second option is the cafe at the ground floor of the Nador 15 building. Although perhaps not ideal for a meal, the cafe provides a good selection of beverages to choose from along with a variety of sandwiches and other snacks. If you’re looking for a quick coffee during a break in class or just want to meet a friend for coffee without leaving campus, then this is the perfect place for you. The cafe is open to the public, but the CEU community is once again entitled to a 10% discount.
If these two options are not for you then you can still opt for the dining options at the old campus building in Nador 9. The ground floor dining hall provides a three-course meal, including a soup, for 960 HUF, which is a pretty good deal. It can be crowded during lunchtimes, so there is often a line, but service is usually very fast. This cafeteria is a great option for anyone looking for a good meal on a budget. (And aren’t we all?)
Last but not least, the Student’s Cafe is in the basement of the Nador 9 building with an impressive selection of snacks. You can go for a warm or cold sandwich, or you can simply get a slice of pizza. All of these come under 400 HUF so this cafe is perfect for students. It also has chips, chocolate, nuts, fruits, and other snacks to help us get through the day.
CEU's campus has quite a few dining options to choose from, so give them all a try!
