Crazy for College Hill Deli

With windows surrounding much of the building, College Hill Deli is always flooded with natural light. Located at 3407 East Douglas, it offers indoor seating as well as outdoor patio seating.

Ranging from Mediterranean and Indian dishes to hamburgers, the menu provides something for everyone. There are plenty of healthy options to choose from. One of my latest obsessions is the raspberry chicken salad, which pairs nicely with the homemade hummus. In addition, the desert case is always filled with cakes so beautiful they could serve purely as decoration.

Owner Ali Yassine knows no stranger, making every customer feel welcome and often knows them by name. He makes his rounds to chat with each table, making sure they love what they ordered.

College Hill Deli provides a perfect lunch or dinner spot, along with carry out and catering. It also serves as a place to study. Make it the next stop on your list of restaurants to try in Wichita.

A visit to Veritá 

Today I experienced Veritá Coffee Company for the first time and it did not disappoint. Relatively new and located on the west side of Wichita, the shop collabs with local businesses such as Beards Floral for succulent decor and serves pastries from Bagatelle Bakery.

The menu is simple, keeping it down to the classics with a few quirky twists including a root beer latte. They serve drinks using only whole Hildebrand milk, and while I am an avid lover of skim milk, I do appreciate the use of milk bottled within Kansas. I had a lovely 12oz latte which was complete with artwork. My mom and I shared a cinnamon roll while listening to the sound of vinyl records playing and watching the rain.

Anywhere with a barista who calls you by name multiple times throughout the first visit is somewhere worth trying. So if you find yourself on the west side, in need of somewhere to study or a new coffee shop to try check out Veritá.
