143 Marshall Street
Cosmos, a kitschy '50s diner, is a Marshall Street gem hidden behind a pizzeria facade. While most eateries on The Hill cater to a specific taste, Cosmos serves everything from loaded cheesesteak sandwiches to mocha-flavored malts to pizza omelets.

Strong Hearts Cafe offers earth-friendly comfort food that’s kind to animals and humans alike. The 100 percent vegan menu satisfies the strictest diet, without disappointing a hearty appetite or ravenous sweet tooth.

802 S. Crouse Avenue
Whether it's game day or Wednesday afternoon, it seems like there is someone always in Varsity chowing down on a slice of cheese pizza or a famous steak sandwich. Everything from chicken wings to salads, the Hill would not be the same without the famous Varsity restaurant. Game day for basketball or football is always a popular choice (especially on the recently rare occasion when the SU football...
