The Michigan Daily, Thursday,
By SETH FLICKER and
Afternoon Delight: 251 E.
Liberty St. Is it a glorified deli? A
cafeteria gone amuck? Whatever it
is, Afternoon Delight is one of Ann
Arbor's most unique restaurants.
Whether they're serving muffins
and made-to-order omelets or create-
your-own sandwiches, Afternoon
Delight does it with a feeling of
fun. Guaranteed to make you smile.
$5 to $10.
Angelo's Lunch: 1100
Catherine St. If you have an eight
o'clock class, Angelo's is worth
getting up at 6:30 for. It would be
just another place to get eggs or
pancakes, if it weren't for Angelo's
homemade breads. They've got an
assortment of it, but the raisin
bread is the best. $5.
Ariel: 330 Maynard St. If
you're into Middle Eastern food,
then Ariel's has it all. From falafels
to chipatis to something called a
complete protein sandwich with
alfalfa sprouts, Ariel's serves it. Go
for lunch and remember to ask for
extra humus. $3 to $5.
The Bagel Factory: 1306 S.
University St. The factory has the
best bagels in Ann Arbor even
though it is one of the only bagel
stores in Ann Arbor. The
experimentals are great and .the
sandwiches are delicious, but what
really makes the place stand out are
the fragels - deep fried cinnamon
and sugar covered bagels. Perfect
student food. $5 to $7.
Bill's Coffee Cup: 201 E.
Liberty St. This place is a real
greasy spoon diner for sure. The
without getting munchies from the
Brown Jug. So the food is not so
hot, but the atmosphere is great.
Pretty reasonably priced. The
service is horrible, but that's all
part of the charm. $5 to $10.
Count of Antipasto/Good
Time Charley's Village Bar
and Grill: 1140,S. University St.
Believe it or not, Charley's does
have some of the best Italian food
around. The chicken dishes are best
and the portions are generous. $5 to
Cottage Inn: 512 E. Williams
St. It's on the best place to take a
date list for sure. Really fine Italian
food at very reasonable prices. The
Mediterranean pizza is a must-try as
well, but on weekends the wait can
be daunting. $10 to $12.
Donburi: 215 S. State St.
This restaurant is one hot place
with some of the best oyako, gyoza
and teriyaki around. Not only is it
delicious but it's cheap, too. Check
it out for sure. $5 to $7.
Drake's Sandwich Shop:
709 N. University St. Walking
through the front door of Drake's is
like taking a sentimental journey
back to the '20s, but why not? The
decor of the restaurant hasn't
changed since then. Drake's offers a
variety of sandwiches, cakes,
deserts, and malted milk shakes and
also has an large assortment of
candies from gummy bears to
Droste's chocolate. Don't forget to
try the specialty - homemade
limeade. And don't forget at Drake's
you have to fill out your own
orders and pick up your food at the
counter. $3 to $5.
Frank's: 334 Maynard St.
Greek restaurant? Well, I don't
know about that. What I do know
about, though, is that Frank's has
the best French toast in town, and
pretty good eggs as well as a
pleasant atmosphere. One of the
few places you never feel
uncomfortable being alone. $5 to
The Full Moon: 207 S.
Main St. Forget about that
overcrowded bar part. The Full
Moon has great Mexican food.
Even though it may be a little
pricey for a student-budgeted lunch,
it's sill worth saving up for. $7 to
The Gandy Dancer: 401
Depot St. Looking for a seafood
restaurant where passing trains are a
common diversion? Look no
further, the Gandy Dancer fits the
bill. Located in the old Ann Arbor
train depot - a historic landmark
- the Gandy Dancer honor's its
past by maintaining its original
appearance and function as much as
possible. The food is as delicious as
the restaurant's atmosphere is
charming. $10 to $15.
Grandma Lee's: At the corner
of Liberty and Forth Streets and
Pantree of Ann Arbor: 330 E.
Liberty St. These are two of the
only 24 hour hot spots in town.
Take advantage of them. Pantree
has the best nachos in town, I'm
convinced. Though expensive,
Pantree is a great place to go at four
in the morning. Grandma Lee's just
opened up this past year and will
definitely succeed because they
never close. Grandma Lee's has a
much more relaxed and pleasant
atmosphere than the Pantree. Try
their brownies. $5 to $10.
Half-way Inn: East Quad -
rangle. Another great breakfast
spot. This University "cafeteria" is
a far cry from the conventional. The
Half-way has great eggs and turkey
sandwiches and you can even use
your meal card. It also has an
excellent jukebox and great people
watching. $2 to $5.
House of Sandwich: 209 S.
Fourth. Inexpensive, delicious,
great service. How could you go
wrong? A really good place for
Hur's Campus Cafe: At the
corner of Williams and Thompson
Streets. Why this place isn't packed
is beyond me. It has amazing
Korean food and fabulous vegeterian
and Korean steak subs. $3 to $5.
Joanne's Food: At the corner
of State and Packard Streets. The
name says it all. Food offers
everything from falafels to $1.99
breakfast specials. $2 to $5.
Krazy Jim Blimpy Bur -
gers: 551 S. Division St. Voted
the best burger in town for the past
five years in the Daily's Best of
Ann Arbor poll, Blimpy Burgers is
sure to please even the most picky
burger fans. The burgers come in a
variety of sizes and with a choice of
many different toppings and buns.
Remember, no meal at Blimpy
Burgers would be complete without
an order of fried mushroom caps.
Metzger's Black Forest
Inn: 203 E. Washington St. This
German-American restaurant is the
oldest in Ann Arbor, and if age is
any indication of the quality of a
restaurant, the people at Metzger's
have got to be doing something
right. The restaurant serves up
German specialties like sauerbraten
and Beef rouladen and American
cuisine like meatloaf. But go just
to check out the atmosphere; you'll
feel like you're in Europe. $10 to
Middle Kingdom: 332 S.
Main St. A fantastic place to take
mom and dad. It's not the best
Chinese food in the country but it
does have some lucious sze-chuan.
Service is top-notch too. .$10 to
Pizza Bob's: 814 S. State St.
This Ann Arbor institution doesn't
look like one. Pizza Bob's is only
7 ft. wide, and you feel like you're
eating in the cook's lap. But,
nonetheless what the cook is
celebrate. The restaurant grants the
"birthdayee" a free diner. Great
special, huh? Well, if that's not
enough to get you down there,
maybe the food will. If you're into
anything that swims, Real
Seafood's got and makes it good.
$10 to $15.
Red Hot Lovers: 629 E.
University St. and Le Dog: 410
Liberty St. Red Hots and Le dog are
the hot dog champions of Ann
Arbor. Hots specializes in a myriad
of toppings and cheap refills on
pop. Le Dog is inexpensive and
easy to stop off at. Believe it or not
the owner is also a gourmet chef
and specialty orders like duck a
l'orange can be got for way cheap
though they must be ordered a day
in advance. Hot dog lovers rejoice!
$5 to $7.
Seva: 314 E. Liberty St. Are
you a vegetarian? Then here's the
restaurant for you. But you don't
even have to be vegetarian to enjoy
Seva's completely meatless entrees.
You just can't help but feel healthy
while eating veggi delights like
brocholi-peanut stir-fry, pasta with
marinated artichoke hearts, and
tempe burgers. $5 to $10.

food is mediocre, but the setting is
ideal. Don't ask for a table. There
are none. $5.
Brown Jug: 1204 S.
University St. A night of drinking
on the town is not complete
Continental: 315 State St.
For daily, inexpensive soup and
sandwich specials, the Continental
can't be beat. Not far from the
Diag, Continental is a frequent stop
for University students at lunch
time. The fare ranges from the
traditional cheeseburger to a veggi
sandwich in a pita pocket. $5.
Specializing in Sze-chuan, Hunan, and Mandarine cuisine

thing to be said for the MUG is
that it has a variety. From salads to
pizza to muffins to Chinese food,
the MUG has it all. And anyway,
there's no way to avoid it. $3 to
Parthenon Gyros Rest -
aurant: 226 S. Main St. One of
the best Greek places in town. The
gyros are very edible. A great
alternative to the typical dinner. $8
The Pico Deli: 1106 S. Uni -
versity St. Here is Ann Arbor's
smallest restaurant. At best maybe
three people including the cook can
fit in it, but nonetheless Pico's

rolls and other Chinese specialties.
