La Verne offers a variety for restaurant goers
Posted March 19, 2007

University of La Verne college students are eating more than just Davenport these days.

The city of La Verne has many restaurants to offer considering its small size. In La Verne you can get some great food choices ranging from Mexican to Japanese to everything in between.

According to students, the top five restaurants in no particular order are: the Bowl House, Aoki, Warehouse Pizza in downtown La Verne, and The Bagelry and Casa Garcia Grill.

Students enjoy being able to get good food without having to go too far.

“The food (at The Bagelry) is really good,” said Josie Faus, a sophomore speech communications major. “I always get the turkey delight on the jalapeño bagel.”

Faus first started going to The Bagelry with her grandparents who live in La Verne. Faus remembers the Sunday morning bagel trips she used to make with them. Faus now likes to go with friends every now and then.

Podges offers students great tasting sandwiches and smoothies; whereas, the Bowl House offers a variety of teriyaki bowls.

For dinner students choose restaurants with a bit more substance like Café Allegro, Shogun Restaurant, La Paloma and T. Philips Ale House.

 “I really like going (to Café Allegro), I like Italian food and it tastes like it is homemade,” said Sandra Ortega, a sophomore biology major. “The food is excellent, but the service could be better.”

La Paloma may not be the picture of what a Mexican restaurant should be, yet it is doing something right with its good food and great service.

Students not only enjoy eating at T. Philips, but it is also a popular hang out. Students enjoy the atmosphere and the wide variety of beer choices.

No matter what time of day it is, lunch or dinner, Aoki Restaurant and Casa Garcia are a couple of student’s favorites.

“The prices (at Aoki Restaurant) aren’t too bad and the food is good,” said Samantha Dauz, a sophomore liberal studies major. “The people are very friendly they have good customer service.”

“It’s (Aoki Restaurant) easy to get to from campus,” said Natasha Lo a sophomore business administration major. “I love sushi I always get the combination plate with tuna rolls.”

Casa Garcia Grill is a small family-owned Mexican restaurant decorated with paintings by the famous painter Diego Rivera.

“I really like the atmosphere and the food is very authentic,” said Ashley Joseph a junior psychology major. “The waitresses are very nice.”
