So apparently it’s not new (#freshmanproblems), but Joedega is making a comeback on College Hill. This aesthetically pleasing truck “proudly serves fresh, locally roasted coffee from small farms around the globe.” I’m in! Just in time for reading week, Joedega’s extensive menu of brewed coffee, espresso, lattes, and teas will keep you pumped up for some quality time in the Rock.
The truck, which is posting up on Brown and George today, promises to be a savior for all those who were missing the iced coffee from Providence Coffee Roasters. And if caffeine isn’t your thing (congrats!), Joedega has a promising smoothie menu! Go check them out and keep supporting the ever-growing plethora of food trucks on campus.
We know you’ve been missing something. It has been a long winter, and with the arrival of April comes
warm weather iced coffee season. And if you’re a coffee fiend like me, you’re probably most definitely wondering, “What happened to that lovely golden yellow truck on George Street?” Yes, I’m talking about Providence Coffee Roasters. Much to my embarrassment, this is still the ONLY truck I’ve ever patronized in Providence (I should probably try Mama Kim’s before my freshman year is over). It’s almost like I’ve subconsciously boycotted ever other truck in homage to PCR. I’ve stalked its (quite kind) Twitter (its last post was on November 8th), called its store, e-mailed Jevon, and still have yet to figure out WTF is happening on the Main Green. @Jevon Chan, if you see this, know you are missed and loved by coffee addicts across campus.
Lunchtime on Thayer between Waterman & George is a beautiful thing. Where else can you get a side of tacos for your bulgogi rice set? Well, tomorrow you can feast on your favorite meal on wheels and do some good for our community. Four food trucks— Thayer Street favorites Rocket and Providence Coffee Roasters, as well as Roxy Lobster and Jack’s Ice cream—are hosting a food truck extravaganza dubbed Truck-a-Palooza. From 1-4 p.m., these trucks will park at Roger Williams National Memorial and serve delicious nomz for charity. Ten percent of their profits will go to the City Meal Site food bank. Good food, good cause, and a good reason to leave the Hill.
