Cheap eats are easy to find near Ryerson campus. Even if you've only got a few bucks to your name, these place have something on the menu with flavour and substance you can afford.

Here are my picks for the top cheap eats near Ryerson.

Chaska Express

Veggie kathi rolls are $7.99 at this location of an Indian street food brand located in the food court of the Atrium on Bay.
