There’s just 2 weeks left before Oberlin comes alive again with some college students coming for the first time and others returning for the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th year. The International students arrive around Aug. 25th and by Tues. the 28th the First Year students arrive with all their gear followed by the upper classmen on Labor Day weekend. Just a word of advise to new college parents – if your son or daughter will be attending college at a small school, be sure to check out the area accommodations, plan your yearly visits, and make reservations very early! A very limited number of rooms are available at B & B’s and small hotels in college towns so the early birds get the best rooms, especially for Parent’s Weekends and graduation.
Yesterday was a beautiful Sunday here, very quiet after the guests checked out and before the new guests checked in, so we decided to go out for a late lunch. After much thought about where to go, it suddenly dawned on us that we hadn’t been to The Feve in Oberlin for quite some time. So the decision was made and off we went to town. And lucky for us, we made it just in time before the Sunday Brunch hours ended! We sat at the curvatious downstairs bar where we were greeted with quick service and absolutely fantastic food! Almost as good as the Hallauer House breakfasts! Joe had the shrimp wrap with these amazing tater tots and I had a noodle dish with lots of herbs and veggies and a spinach salad with a lite vinegrette dressing. Scumptiously delicious! The brunch menu changes each week and as they say on their website “this keeps the cooks excited about the menu and keeps you from getting bored!” They also have a regular menu, lunch and dinner, as well as a full service bar with wine and at least a half dozen or more imported draft beers on tap.
So parents and visitors, when you come to Oberlin, be sure to visit The Feve. The students know all about it-it’s a great college hangout so I’m sure they will guide their parents there, but if you’re visiting or just passing through Oberlin, this is a great place to get some great food at some great prices.
