Takeout places to eat in Bethlehem

4

Editor’s note: This listicle has been expanded to include more takeout options in Bethlehem.

With the coronavirus pandemic, multiple businesses have changed their hours and adjusted service due to the lack of students still on campus — only 230 remain. 

Non-essential businesses have closed but, according to Pennsylvania laws, to-go, curbside and delivery sales are still allowed by food and beverage businesses. Some restaurants have even shifted to contactless delivery where an order is placed at the customer’s doorstep rather than making direct contact.

Here are a few of the restaurants located not far off campus that remain open in some capacity. 

The amount of dollar signs signify the affordability of the restaurant. 

Deja Brew

Deja Brew offers different sandwich variations, salads, soups, burgers, teas, coffee and assorted lattes. The food is prepared daily, and  it is now restricted to only take-out or delivery options. One of the workers said the restaurant usually receives calls for orders and has shifted to using Grubhub for delivery services. Because of its proximity to campus, right on Fourth Street, Deja Brew was one of the restaurants visited frequently by Lehigh students.

    BeanBath Cafe in Bath has an awesome menu selection including vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free all available at their drive-thru.

  2. I think a nice longer list of names with web sites would be a welcome thing for all of us who are stuck inside. There are many eateries in the city that offer take-out and even delivery. so how about a compressive list in the interest of the public.
