16 Amazing Places Every Student In Northampton Needs To Eat This Year
1. Zapato Lounge
Kicking it off with Zapato, this place offers affordable meals and an amazing selection of tapas, burgers, and a vegan-friendly menu set in a cosy cafe environment. The ultimate stress-free break from uni deadlines.
2. Mu Mu
A personal favourite is Mu Mu, just the name is enough. It has a very young feel to it, playing chart and dance music with their speciality of juicy burgers cooked to your choice and gorgeous pizza. Not to mention lush milkshakes and cocktails. Pre-drinks, anyone?
Following Joe Wicks & Lean in 15?…then you can still enjoy Mu Mu this January! 🌽🍓🍏 Joe's Cajun Chicken Burger available from 6pm tonight! (Tuesday 3rd January) and for the whole of this month! Grilled Cajun chicken breast, crushed avocado, tomato, gem lettuce & natural yogurt served with a half portion of sweet potato fries! 🍠🍟 #leanin15 #joewicks #thebodycoach #mumukettering #mumunorthampton
3. Market Tavern
Often overlooked and from this Instagram alone it definitely deserves more credit. It’s perfectly placed in town and has posh looking (and tasting) food and 2-4-1 cocktails from 5pm-8pm Fridays.
4. Mandarin Buffet
“Did someone say buffet?” A Chinese-inspired restaurant that you really can’t get enough of (no seriously it’s all you can eat). If you fancy lunch in the week its £8.50!
Karmana serves amazing vegan dishes with an awesome natural juice bar. If you’re ever wanting foody pleasure that’s guilt-free and a bit different, Karmana is definitely a place to visit.
6. The Smoke Pit
Meat lovers, this is your place. With American inspired BBQ food, The Smoke Pit has an amazing atmosphere and friendly staff. One of the pricier places to visit so perhaps save this for when the student loan kicks in. #Treatyoself.
7. Magee Street Bakery
Bread, cake and coffee lovers, this is your stop. It’s a massively popular local stop which you have to try even if it’s just once for their amazing scotch eggs and delicious cakes.
8. Bread & Pullet
Who would have thought a British tapas restaurant would be so popular? Perfect for sharing food that is very affordable and a unique experience.
9. Franks Hamburger House
What is better than a delicious burger restaurant with crispy sesame seed buns and more variety than you can think of? One that delivers, of course. That’s right, they deliver. Embrace the lazy student life without judgement.
10. Dapper Sandwich Co
A great stop for lunch if you’re ever on the welly road, from classic BLTs to the more adventurous belly pork with green salsa and dipping gravy.
11. The Plump Partridge
Artizan styled restaurant with some of the best-looking food we’ve ever seen. Honestly, just look at their website, or better yet stop by. They specialise in lunch offering wood fired pizzas and amazing coffee and tea.
A Turkish delight based in the centre of town. Packed with plenty of food on skewers and mixed shish. You can’t really go wrong.
13. Cookies & Cream
Moving onto dessert, Cookies & Cream is in its infancy and has the most mouthwatering desserts. If the Instagram doesn’t capture your attention we don’t know what will. Waffles and ice cream galore!
Rivalling Cookies & Cream, Kaspas is perfect for sweet tooth fans and the ultimate place to take a mandatory picture of your food before eating. The presentation is gorgeous and the whipped Ice cream is to die for.
15. Papa Cino’s
Couldn’t forget the authentic Italian Papa Cino’s. If you’re after the ultimate Italian experience from Gnocchi *drools* to Calzone and Tiramisu this is your place.
Finishing on a spicy option, Chiquitos is a very student friendly Mexican chain restaurant with generous portions of burritos, enchiladas, and cocktails. Best of all, there’s 25% off all food any day any time for students. Need I say more?
