It’s finals time in Athens and that means it’s time to lock in. All of the learning centers and libraries are gonna be filled to the brim so you need somewhere else to turn to. Here are some great off-campus study spots where you can get a quick bite.

Bubble Cafe

Bubble Cafe is a boba shop located downtown, so it should be easy to find transportation. Their food menu might even be more impressive than their drink menu. Finding a seat should not be a difficult task, but it might be a little loud to your liking

Taichi Bubble Tea

This is another boba place located downtown if Bubble cafe isn’t for you. There is tons of seating here and it is conveniently located right by the arch, so you can get here through a quick trip on the bus. Taichi has poke bowls, sushi burritos, and ramen alongside their extensive drink collection

Hendershots Coffee

You may not have heard of this hidden gem, but it is the perfect place to study. The store is very spacious and unlike the previous two options, Hendershot’s has caffeine to restore your energy. Their food menu consists of croissants and beignets and they even have an extensive alcoholic drink menu if you want to lift your spirits after a productive study session (or the opposite. Whatever floats your boat). If you want something to do on weekends that doesn’t include heavy partying, they have live music on fridays. It’s by farm burger and a short walk from downtown.

Jittery Joes

Jittery Joes is a great alternative to its more overpriced counterpart coffee shop. This is an especially great place study spot because of its many locations and extensive menu. It’s a popular coffee shop so it might be a little loud for some people, but I would recommend it.

 1000 faces

This is another coffee shop with multiple locations, although there is only 1 in Athens. This is just your regular coffee shop. It’s located by the classic center so it’s not too far out the way. This is also an area with tons of seating so it should accommodate your studying needs.
