There is an air of bliss at Panjab University. Precisely, the area in and around StuC is a place which you will never find empty, even on Sundays. Not only students of PU, people, both young and old, who have no association to the place are ardent visitors to the place. Now for most of you, the Students Centre might only sound like a regular canteen where people come to break free from their worries. However, StuC is actually is a lot more than that. Be it some festive celebration or a little discussion forum or maybe a fund raiser for an event, you will always see StuC as the venue.
Cafes at Stu-C, Panjab University, Chandigarh
Talking about food, every visitor here swears by the taste and quality being served. The food is affordable and there is a whole lot of variety to choose from.

The place offers outdoor seating as well. So on chilly days, you can easily spot young people basking in the sun and enjoying their meal.
Their fried rice and thalis are a show stealer. On certain afternoons, there is so much rush that one has to wait for a substantial duration to get his order served. Their cholle bhature and Manchurian are also one of the best. Since their kitchen is quite hygienic and coordinated, Raj Eatery is therefore a favourite of people who come to StuC.
The restaurant is open from 9 to 9 on all days. Locate this place at Shop No. 6 at Stu-C, PU, Chandigarh. Reviews suggest that their paranthas and sandwiches should be definitely tried. Mama Mia is quite pocket friendly too. Apart from the routine dishes, you could also try sprouts, juices and fruit chaat. Their green chilly cheese is a flavorful option too. Mamma Mia is a name to reckon with when it comes to food at StuC.
Talking about personal preferences, my visit to StuC is usually incomplete without stopping at Shake Club. Their shakes are mind blowing. The quantity is more than enough and one could fill his belly at the most affordable prices. You could try their Oreo Shake or Frappes and I assure you will never be disappointed. The fast food served here is also amazing. You could choose among a variety of sandwiches and grilled burgers. Panner Tikka Sandwich is my personal favourite. I suggest that you try out Shake Club out of various cafes at Stucee on your next visit to Panjab University, Chandigarh.

The shakes offered here range from Banana to Strawberry to kesar pista too. Other snacks at this cafe in Stu-C including spring rolls, momos and Manchurians will leave you asking for more. An average meal for 2 people costs Rs. 150 only, which I think is not at all on the higher side.
