A Student’s Guide to Eating Out on a Budget in Port Elizabeth

Some of the reasons us students eat out at restaurants are for a quick break, to unwind at the end of a long week or an exceptionally long day, when there’s no time or energy to cook a meal because there’s always something to get done, or to catch up with friends.  At the same time, it’s fair to say that we do so when there is no pressure of having to pay a ridiculous amount of money just to eat out. This is where these top three restaurant deals come in. They are just the fix!

Seattle Coffee
From their spacious Walmer Branch to the on-the-go branch in Summerstrand on the way to school, Seattle Coffee is perfect for both coffee and non-coffee lovers alike. The cafe has a point system, recording each purchase you make when you enter your phone number. Your 11th drink is free, ensuring that all your visits don’t go to waste.

This is for all the pizza lovers who also appreciate a restaurant with great decor and ambience too! Every Monday at Bocadillos is half price on all their pizzas, with a variety of choices for meat-eaters and vegetarians as well.

The Bru Bar
The Bru Bar is a great place for both drinks and great food. Mondays at the restaurant offer a 2 for 1 pizza special while Thursdays are for their buy 1 get 1 free for burger special.

These are just some of the great restaurant deals that P.E has to offer. So whether you’re a little low on cash or not, there’s always an opportunity to save but still enjoy some time out!
