Looking for a place to eat in downtown State College? Try exploring these 5 restaurants! As a State College townie, I have had my fair share of Penn State restaurants, and these are by far some of my favorite places and orders.

Playa Bowls

My personal favorite is the Nutella Acai Bowl (a classic), but I also love the Valentine's Bae Bowl and the green Lola Bowl! Each one gives a nice refreshing taste and is packed with fruity flavor.


I always order the Pesto Caesar Bowl from Roots. This bowl contains leafy greens, tomatoes, and chicken all topped with a special pesto caesar dressing. The Apollo Bowl is another delicious option!

Yallah Taco

I personally love the nachos from Yallah Taco downtown. They are easy to share with a group and make for a great snack! Yallah Taco also sells the most delicious burrito bowls, adding some competition to Chipotle.


This sushi restaurant sells some of the best Dragon Rolls I have ever tasted! If you love sushi, give this restaurant a try.

Sower's Harvest Cafe

The French Toast at Sower's is truly to die for in the morning! Paired with fresh coffee, this meal allows for a great start to the morning.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
