Lunch in Providence, RI near Brown?

Slightly inexpensive, if possible. Going to visit Brown with my mother and would love to get a bit of a taste for the local restaurant scene!

  1. There are alot of restaurants on Thayer Street, right near Brown. You could google Thayer and probably find a list.

    1. I am a huge fan of East Side Pockets on Thayer St. They have the best gyros around There is a little bit of everything on Thayer, you can't really go too wrong. Geoff's on Benefit is in walking distance and has awesome sandwiches. I would say one of those!

      1. If you are in the mood for a sandwich, George's Deli (167 Ives Street) is fantastic and very inexpensive. I'm also a fan of East Side Pockets, though it gets very crowded (I find it overwhelming sometimes) at lunchtime.

        1. Not sure if they are open for lunch, but we love Andrea's and Tortilla Flats...and while I haven't been in YEARS, Spats used to be good. Hope that helps!

          1. mmm, gyros sound good. Thank you guys!
