Some great places to eat!

Richies breakfast kiosk is a favorite quick stop for Temple students.  Located on campus just seconds from the train station, this is the place to go for a zesty breakfast burrito or an infamously delicious iced coffee on the way to class!

There are few sit-down, full-service restaurants in the area but The Draught Horse on Cecil B. has a great ambiance with its Temple sports memorabilia decor and decent beer selection.

Getting Around

Getting around the city is easy and convenient, with the Cecil B Moore subway stop located conveniently at 1700 N.
