NIU Housing and Dining will open the East Side Café in time for the fall semester.
“In response to years of students’ input that they wished that there would be more food and drink options on the east side of campus, NIU is excited to offer a Starbucks at East Side Café to the NIU community,” said Richard Fritz, director of Residential Dining.
“Starbucks is a well-known company with a great reputation and drinks that are recognized and popular among the age group.”
The East Side Café will offer a wide variety of hot and cold beverages and NIU bakery items. Four types of coffee will be available:
- Veranda Blend (a light roast);
- Pike Place (a medium roast);
- Caffè Verona (a dark roast); and
- a decaf coffee blend.
Students and faculty members can use their Huskie Bucks, debit/credit cards and NIU flex dining dollars.
