College is tiring, food is good, and the walk to the dining hall is just sooo far. You're doing everything you can to stay in bed. We've all been there, and I can vouch for you. Consider this article your one-stop shop to all things yummy and lazy.

1. CoreLife Eatery

Carly Perlmutter

If you're like me, you love all things sushi. Corelife Eatery's sushi-inspired poke bowls are my go-to delivery meal. My order: brown rice, tuna, avocado, lettuce, carrots, and pico de gallo (find my favorite homemade pico de gallo recipe here)! Mmhmm.

2. Sushi Osaka

As a self-declared sushi fanatic, I knew I needed to explore places with actual sushi rolls. While the sushi in Ithaca may not compare to what I'm used to back home, Sushi Osaka is hands-down the best place for sushi I've found here. What's more, it promises delivery in under forty minutes! I  love sushi and hate playing the game of patience. If you're anything like me, this is the ideal restaraunt for you.

3. Insomnia Cookies

Okaaay moving on from the sushi-related delivery options. Cookies! It's 3am, you just got back to your dorm, and you're not in the right place of mind to withstand a snack. Call Insomnia before you hit the pillow. It will taste 10x better than any cookie you eat during the day. Bible.

4. D.P. Dough

Another late-night favorite that I probably wouldn't enjoy as much during the day is D.P. Dough. From calzones, pizza, and mozzarella sticks, to brownies, cookies, and fried ice cream, D.P. Dough is ready and able to satisfy any and all cravings.

5. Chipotle

So original, right? I'm only including this one because I feel like I'd be hiding something if I didn't. Whether at home or in Ithaca, ordering from and eating Chipotle is undoubtedly a go-to. I really don't think you can go wrong with any order from here if you pick the toppings you like (although this order is my personal favorite).

6. Friendly's

I'm pretty picky when it comes to ice cream so I really never expected Friendly's to be my thing. And for the most part, I was right - it's not really my thing. However, I there's one item on the menu in particular that I wouldn't ever voluntarily pass up. Their Reese's-inspired fudge sundae. I don't even know what they do differently but something about their combination of chocolate, peanut-butter and ice cream hits different. So good it doesn't deserve to have the Friendly's branding associated with it.


I hope you took something away from this article and find yourself trying one of these Ithaca delivery options in the near future! Be careful though: after you do it a couple times, ordering out is probably going to become your best friend. 

I promise my descriptions of each spot does not do any of their food justice. All five of these restaurants, along with  others that I’ve yet to try (but will soon, don't you worry...), are available on both Grubhub and Uber Eats for delivery. So, whether you’re sick, tired, or neither, hit up my go-to’s and save me a bite. Happy eating!
