Waterfront Gourmet Cafe & Deli Has The Brainfood For Your Finals Week Studies

Caffeinated Drinks do More Than Wake You up

Boost Your Brainpower For Finals Week In University City

Finals week is approaching around the country; the dreaded week or so where all college and university students are focused on studying, exams and grades. There are tons of resources out there with study tips, but have you taken a moment to consider how what you use to fuel your body can directly affect your brainpower?

So often, finals week is plagued with sleepless nights and junk food. A common mistake many students make is to rely on energy drinks, sugary snacks and fast food to “keep energy levels up.” However, these choices are not only harmful to your long term health, but can also negatively affect your exam performance. Luckily, if you live in the 19102, 19103, or University City areas, Waterfront Gourmet cafe & deli has what you need to survive finals week with flying colors!

Five Brainfood Ideas For Ultimate Study Power

When you are busy studying for finals, the last thing you have time for is to cook a good meal. That’s where Waterfront’s Cafe & Deli delivery menu comes to the rescue! Our menu is filled with delicious and healthy foods that are proven to boost brainpower! And even better, you can order Waterfront deli delivery so you don’t even have to leave your dorm room.

  1. Eggs, containing B vitamins are great for cognition. Choose any one of our flavorful breakfast sandwiches to start your day right!

  2. Wholegrains give you a steady supply of energy throughout the day, increasing your ability to concentrate. Waterfront’s cafe menu is filled with delicious sandwiches on wholegrain breads.

  3. Tomatoes contain lycopene, a powerful antioxidant, which helps keep brain cells in top shape. Try choosing one of our cafe menu salads or sandwiches with tomatoes.

  4. Chicken & fish, rich in B vitamins and folic acid boost that brainpower, while the protein they contain will keep your energy levels high. Order one of our cafe & deli chicken or tuna sandwiches to fuel your way through long study sessions.

  5. Green leafy vegetables are rich in vitamins and antioxidants that fuel your body and nourish your brain. Grabbing one of our gourmet deli salads will satisfy your hunger and help you study.

We all reach for something caffeinated when we want to “wake up” but did you know that caffeine plays another role? Researchers at John Hopkins University found that caffeine has cognitive-enhancing effects. In their study, published in Nature Neuroscience, found that caffeine strengthens memory functions for 24 hours after consumption! So when you need a little burst of energy, Waterfront cafe’s gourmet coffees will fit the bill. Order online and get delivery through GrubHub, Uber Eats Postmates or Eat 24. No matter your favorite flavor, our selection of delicious coffees wake you up and help you remember all those facts for your finals.
