Food on/near Campus
Most of the food vendors on campus are closed during the summer.
The Tim Hortons in SITE (STE) at the south end of campus and the Starbucks in Desmarais (DMS) at the north end of campus are both known to be open in May during previous BSDCan events; presumably they'll be open in early June, too.
The Pivik convenience store in University Center is also open during the summer; double-check the hours of operation.
Several establishments are immediately adjacent to campus:
ShawarmaOttawa is home to a very large Lebanese-Canadian population, and this has produced a disproportionate number of Shawarma restaurants. Ask your fellow conference-goers for specific recommendations. Ottawa-style shawarma is noticeably different from what you'll find in, say, München (Munich), Chicago, or Baltimore.
If the convenience stores don't have what you want, the closest major grocery stores are Metro (245 Rideau St., open 24hrs) and Loblaws (363 Rideau St.). There are several smaller and/or specialty grocers within walking distance.
