Presto Strange O Coffee Co. 

Presto Strange O is a mobile cafe that has been specializing in catering events since 2010. The truck makes appearances throughout Rhode Island and Massachusetts, and it has recently been growing in popularity on campus.

The trucks are headquartered in Warwick and soon a storefront will be open. The company is planning for the grand opening to be at the beginning of June. The locations of the trucks are posted weekly on the cafe’s Instagram (@prestostrange_o_coffee) and Facebook.

The menu consists of many options. It has the typical selection of coffee and teas for a cafe as well as specialty drinks that make it one of a kind. At SAGA’s (Sexuality and Gender Alliance) Queerfest, which took place on April 12, 2021, the options included lavender lemonade and cotton candy lemonade. Some specials they have offered in the past include a blueberry pancake latte, a cosmic brownie latte and a peanut butter cookie latte.

Championship Melt

Championship Melt markets itself as the only wrestling-themed, gourmet grilled cheese food truck in the world. Its grilled cheese selections start with the traditional recipe for grilled cheese: bread and cheese. The menu is full of family recipes that have been passed down through the generations and have added to the bread and cheese.

The sandwich prices range between $5 and $12. One of the sandwiches contains cheddar cheese, peanut butter, banana, hot sauce, bacon and a fried egg. Other sandwiches contain buffalo chicken, chili, apples and a variety of cheese choices. The location of the trucks can be found on the company’s Twitter @champmelt.

Rocket Fine Street Food

Rocket Fine Street Food is a food truck originating in Providence. Its menu includes burgers, hot dogs, egg sandwiches and pork. The company is heavily invested in using honest and quality ingredients and products.

It serves Yacht Soda, which has been made in Providence since 1915. Its beef comes from Niman Ranch, which ensures it raises livestock humanely. All of Rocket Fine Street Food’s menu items are made from scratch and are always fresh.

Menu items have unique names, such as the Fox Mulder burger, the Ron Swanson burger and the Roswell burger. The truck also offers veggie burgers, hot dogs and pork sandwiches. The food truck’s schedule can be found on its website
