Due to construction at the North Dining Hall, Café de Grasta in Grace Hall is now open extended hours; the new hours are 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday.
Café de Grasta offers hot breakfasts (made-to-order eggs, pancakes, waffles, bacon and sausage, as well as hot oatmeal, yogurt and fruit) and two hot entrees daily. Also available is an extensive salad bar, hot soup and hot or cold grab-and-go sandwiches, as well as made-to-order sandwiches and wraps. There’s usually a line at the popular wrap station, where staffers make more than 140 per day. Five flavors of coffee are brewed fresh all day.
“Overall, the most popular entrees offered currently are grilled cheese and tomato soup, the tuna melt sandwich, burrito bowls and the Reuben sandwich,” says Reggie Kalilli, assistant director of marketing for Campus Dining.
Gwen Mottl, the new sous chef at de Grasta, has introduced a number of popular entrees, including tilapia tacos, hot turkey or beef Manhattan sandwiches, fried chicken and baked salmon.
