Mercyhurst students will be happy to know that they now have another eatery to enjoy on campus.
Once again, the Café Diem, located in the first floor lobby of the Center for Academic Excellence (CAE), opened its shutters on Monday, Sept. 23, to those looking for an affordable treat.
Run by the Hospitality Management program, the Café will be open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will soon have evening hours.
Café Diem sells a variety of drinks including sodas, coffees, hot chocolates and teas. It will also serve sandwiches, wraps and salads. Typical snacks like nuts and candies are also being sold.
The Café Diem is unique in a few ways. It is run almost entirely by hospitality management students. Working for the Café gives students experience in management and provides a great reference for resumes.
Students on work study can also fulfill that requirement by working at the Café Diem.
The Café is also unique in its payment methods. Customers of the Café Diem must pay cash for their meals, however, management officials are sure that prices will be affordable for cash strapped college students and other customers.
The menu, whose details remained under wraps until the Café’s grand opening, is open to suggestions. Patrons are encouraged to submit requests and most importantly to stop by and check out its selection.
