food & grocery: Frugal Friday at Revive - bagels, salads and yogurt parfaits are all thrifty options
Fresh fruit, bagels with cream cheese, a wide variety of pastries, breakfast sandwiches, and many beverages (coffees, tea, sodas, and smoothies) are also available for less than $5 each. Many of these are provided by local businesses, too, from Mighty Good Coffee, Barry Bagels, Zingerman's Bakehouse, and the Pastry Peddler.
There's even a "create your own salad" option, starting with a base of $2.95 for greens and dressing; then you can choose from a wide variety of fresh options (priced individually) — vegetables, cheeses, proteins, nuts, fruits — to make your own unique dish. Revive is very vegetarian- and vegan-friendly and also serves beer and wine, which are 50 percent off from 3-6 p.m.
So stop by this bright, friendly, welcoming spot conveniently located on Central Campus to revive and refresh yourself with a treat or a beverage or a light meal. You'll be so glad that you did!
