BYU-Idaho Food Services will open a cafe in the Eliza R. Snow building at the beginning of fall semester.
The cafe will be located directly across from the Snow Black Box Theater on the first floor.Three other cafes currently exist on campus in the Thomas E. Ricks and Spencer W. Kimball buildings and the David O. McKay Library.
“We want to bring the food to the students in an effort to enhance their student experience,” said Ryan Young, a retail operations servisor for Food Services. “That’s all it’s about, just bringing them something they like at a fair price.”
Young said students who spend most of their time in the Snow building requested the new cafe.
“I spend hours in [the Snow building], and every few hours I get hungry,” said McKenna Rammell, a freshman studying music.
Rammell said the cafe would be convenient for her because she wouldn’t have to go home to eat or buy meals from the vending machines.
“I could get some fresh food. Right now, it’s like, ‘Well, should I buy a candy bar for lunch?’” Rammell said.
Young said Food Services is deciding on menu items for the new cafe.
“We’ve got a lot of sandwich places around campus. We want to make this a little more unique,” Young said.
Young said he expects the cafe to also serve people who attend productions at the Snow Black Box Theater.
Young said students who would like to suggest names for the new cafe, as well as menu items, may email him at email@example.com.
“Come talk to us. The door is always open. I’m open to any feedback that we can get,” Young said.
