What is more important than those exclusive merchandise and scoring autographs at San Diego Comic-Con 2018? The food and drinks, of course– which I am ALWAYS a huge fan of!

Want to know where to get the tastiest treats? Check out our list below!

Get your Captain America waffle on at Café 222 on Island Avenue: a malted waffle shaped like Captain America’s shield, topped with fresh berries and whipped cream.

For the Star Wars fans, check out Prohibition Liquor Bar on Fifth Avenue where you can order drinks called Never Tell Me the Odds (Redemption Rye,demerara, Averna and R&D house bitters), I Find Your Lack of Faith Disturbing (El Silencio Mezcal, watermelon cordial and R&D smoke bitters), or Let the Wookie Win (bourbon, lime, ginger and Fernet).

I also went to the DC Icons: Blockbuster YA Authors Meet Iconic DC Superheroes panel with Marie Lu, Leigh Bardugo and Matt de la Peña. The three writers had a great hour talking about their upcoming DC books, with Bardugo’s Wonder Woman: Warbringer novel coming out first on August 29.
