Sure, there will be vendors selling delicious food at 80/35 this weekend. But if you’d rather sit down to a meal at a table — or escape from the outdoors — here’s where to go. These spots are broken down by how much time you have until setting out to see the next band on your ‘must-see’ list.
If you have 15 minutes
Go to: Ritual Cafe, 1301 Locust St.
For: Located just outside of the festival grounds, Ritual Cafe is a worldly spot for coffee and vegetarian grub. The cafe will be serving wraps this year, which will make grabbing lunch or an afternoon snack a snap while walking to the next show.
If you have 45 minutes
Go to: A Dong, 1511 High St.
For: Delicious Vietnamese cuisine. A couple of blocks away from all the action, A Dong offers a few minutes of peace away from clamoring crowds. A bowl of hot pho would feel great on your parched vocal cords (we get it — you love Mumford’s!), or choose from dozens of other rice, noodle and meat combinations.
If you have an hour
Go to: Centro, 1003 Locust St.
For: Pizza. Centro’s coal-fired, brick oven pizza is perfectly thin, perfectly crispy and perfect for sharing with your friends. Try one of their specials (margherita, The New Yorker or the Quattro Formaggi for starters) or create your own. Soups, salads and sandwiches are also available. If you wake up early on Saturday, stop at Centro first for brunch and a build-your-own Bloody Mary bar.
If you have lots of time (or just want to watch from the bar)
Go to: Americana, 1312 Locust St.
For: A comforting menu with a modern twist, including salads, pastas and burgers. The food will be a perk to the view you’ll get of 80/35, since Americana is located directly across from the festival grounds and features floor-to-ceiling windows. Enjoy your meal with a few $3 PBR tallboys, the bar’s festival special.
