WINTER BREAK: Count on Coffee, Food at a Few Places

By Dateline Staff on December 11, 2018 in University News

Some campus eateries and coffee bars have already scaled back hours or closed, and, starting this Saturday (Dec. 15) and extending into the New Year, your options will be fewer and farther between.

One of our campus mainstays, the Coffee House, will operate only three counters, Swirlz Bakery, Ciao (pizza) and TxMx Grill, Monday through Thursday next week, Dec. 17-20, then will be closed from Friday, Dec. 21, through New Year’s Day. Where to go in the interim? The Market (Memorial Union), serving Peet’s Coffee, will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. this Friday and through the weekend, and all next week, and again Wednesday-Friday, Dec. 26-28.

Scrubs Café in the Health Sciences District is also open next week, whereas food trucks will be here only through this Friday, then will not return until the first day of instruction, Monday, Jan. 7.
