Top UW-Platteville Restaurants

College students need a lot of fuel. Whether it’s coffee, cheap food, mixed drinks or far too much Mountain Dew, you’re going to need something to get you through those long nights in front of the computer with a book on your lap.

This is especially true of UW-Platteville students, whose Mechanical Engineering and Business Administration majors make up a sizeable portion of the student population. When you’re not learning how to run a startup or redesign equipment (and when you’re not searching for houses for rent in Platteville, WI ), use these great places to refuel between study sessions.

  1. Owl Cafe

College isn’t all about sleepless nights. Sometimes you’re up bright and early (we’ve all experienced those dreaded 8 AMs), and when that’s the case you’re going to need breakfast fuel! Enter: the Owl Cafe. A no-frills diner with quality breakfast food and great coffee, the Owl Cafe is the perfect place to escape from the hustle and bustle of campus. Check it out on those bleary-eyed mornings when finals are fast approaching and brain-food is a must.

  1. Asian Cafe

The name says it all! Regardless, we could go on and on about the Asian Cafe. It’s the perfect firestorm of college essentials: great food at cheap prices with unbeatable specials. Students are especially fond of the lunch specials, which are cheaply priced and always come with a free cup of soup. If you’re tired of eating at the same old dining hall for lunch every day, check out the Asian Cafe. You won’t be disappointed!

  1. Brothers on 2nd

We’ve got lunch and breakfast covered, but that still leaves a very important food group out of the loop: beer. Okay, so maybe it’s not its own food group, but when you’re in college it comes pretty close. Brothers on 2nd will provide you with all the beer (and mixed drinks) you need to have a great night out on the town with friends, but it’s also great for its food, too. People rave about the pub-style burgers, so give one a shot when you’re in the mood for quality comfort food!

  1. Badger Brothers Coffee

We know what you’re thinking: aren’t badgers a UW-Madison thing? Not anymore! Platteville is home to Badger Brothers Coffee, a specialty coffeehouse with delicious blends that can’t be found anywhere else in town. It also serves great pastries, snacks and cakes, which are a staple of any collegiate diet. Every student needs a coffeehouse to call home, so if you’ve got a weekend free, venture out to Badger Brothers Coffee and claim it as your new weekend study space!

While we think all of the places on this list are incredible, it’s up to you to find your favorite eateries in Platteville. Don’t worry, we trust you — if you’re smart enough to get into the programs at UW-Platteville, you’ve definitely got the brains to find the best restaurants in town!
