BEST BREAKFAST:ANGELO'S )
It's hard to cure that Sunday morning headache after
a fun night out, but Ann Arbor prescribes something bet-
ter than Advil and coffee - breakfast at Angelo's. With its
savory pancakes, fluffy-as-can-be French toast and mouth-
watering, world-famous raisin bread toast, Angelo's is a-
tasty remedy for those in need of hangover and hunger:
recovery. Though the line is often out the door, this fine
dining establishment is worth the wait. Its atmosphere-
is inviting and diner-like, the staff is friendly, the prices
won't kill your budget and the food is top notch. And for-
those who aren't always down for sugary sweetness in the
morning, there are sandwiches, eggs, salads and more.
There's even a take-out coffee shop for those on the go.
Tucked away on East Catherine, Angelo's is an Ann Arbor
gem too tempting to pass up.

BEST OUTDOOR STORE: BIVOUAC r

The term "bivouac".usually refers to some kind
of makeshift camp. But in Ann Arbor, it most likely
refers to the store on State Street that is so ingrained
in the life of the student shopper. Michigan is known
for its unpredictable weather - hailstorms, three
feet of snow, violent thunderstorms and the occa-
sional sunny day. It's best to be prepared for these
conditions, and Bivouac supplies any outdoors-wear
need with its abundant selection of North Face,
Patagonia and Mountain Hardware. In addition to

the ever-popular North Face wardrobe staple, the
store also offers a range of gear, like sleeping bags
and backpacks, for those who love the outdoors. But
Bivouac is -not just for those more rustic types. It's
also a great place to pick up some stylish workout
clothes or even a dress to wear to the bar. Not only
is Michigan's weather unpredictable, but'a student's
shopping needs are too. Bivouac is the perfect one-
stop shop.

BEST GROCERY STORE: MEIJER
Granted, both of Ann Arbor's Meijer locations are a bit
of a drive, but the payoff is worth it. Both stores have a
far wider variety of foods and lower prices than similar
superstores, with the added benefit of non-food depart-
ments like housewares, clothing, sporting goods and
kitchen wares. Big-box stores can be a turn-off to some,
but the convenience of getting everything in one place fits
the busy schedule of a college student - so long as you can
bum transportation. And really, you're still supporting
a local company, as Meijer is based in Grand Rapids and
about half of its locations are in Michigan. There are also
more checkout lines than in other stores, and that includes
more self-checkouts in case you only need a few things.
Overall, it's the lowest price and the widest selection in
town.

BEST CHEAP EATS: BTB

BTB is worthy of so many superlatives, but
nothing can rival its price. Cooking is always the
wallet-friendly alternative to eating out, but three
square BTB meals a day would challenge any bud-
get shopper to find a cheaper regiment (a vegetar-
ian burrito for $3.75 seriously outweighs all other
options). What's more, if the basic BTB burrito isn't
enough, the menu drifts from the hippie-friendly
vegan plate to the deep-fried steak chimichanga

with extra steak (yes, this is a real option). Panche-
ro's and Chipotle may rival the quality of BTB, but
with such low prices, it's nearly impossible to jus-
tify purchases anywhere else. The establishment
is also open 11 a.m. to 4 a.m., so even late-night
foodies can get in on the cheap eats. At almost any
hour of the day, BTB will have the cheapest meal
around.

BEST JAPANESE FOOD: SADAKO
Of all the sushi restaurants in Ann Arbor, one stands
above the rest: Sadako. It's a sushi lover's dream come true,
with the calm, casual atmosphere making it the perfect place
to stop in for dinner with friends or bring family members
when they come to visit campus. The delicious miso soup
and salad with ginger dressing are the perfect start to what
is always a fresh, quickly prepared meal. And for those din-
ing with friends who don't eat sushi, there's an entire menu
of Japanese food, which includes teriyaki and noodles. In
terms of price, nothing is too expensive and the service is
always fast and friendly. Takeout is usually ready in a snappy
15 minutes, a waiting time rivaled only by the super-speedy
Jimmy John's. Be sure to treat yourself to Sadako's amazing
sushi before a study session - fish is a great brain food - or
whenever you just feel like it.
