Lunch at Bevier

Lunch at Bevier

I am not sure what took me so long, but last semester I discovered how much I love having lunch at our student-run Bevier Café.  It has quickly become one of my favorite places to meet friends  or colleagues for lunch on campus. 

Bevier Café, located in Bevier Hall, is staffed and managed by students in Food Science and Human Nutrition. It’s a laboratory for students to learn the ins and outs of a quantity food service operation.  I am excited about what the students are able to learn there, and I know I am supporting that learning when I go to Bevier to grab lunch. 

Most importantly, though, the food is delicious. And they offer a variety of entrees, soups, side dishes, salads, sandwiches, etc. every day.  I have tried dishes prepared in ways that I have never had before, thanks to the creativity of students experimenting with new recipes. I love their salads, which vary each week, and any time they have quiche on the day’s menu, I try to stop in. 

Admittedly, I go to Bevier Café for the food, but another great benefit is all the ACES students and faculty I bump into while I am there.  I have been able to catch up with researchers who I had been hoping to get in touch with just by chance run-ins during lunchtime at Bevier. The café has a really nice atmosphere, and lunch there feels like a nice break in the middle of the day. 

And for us regulars, we know that the coffee is good, you can get recyclable to-go-boxes, and not to forget our Bevier Café punch cards. 

I am looking forward to Bevier Café’s reopening from the winter break on Jan. 23. Want to learn a little more about what they do? What’s on their menu? Visit http://beviercafe.illinois.edu/index.cfm.
