The student-run café, Brewed Awakening, reopened in the Hospitality Center on January 24. Hours of operation run Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and Fridays from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Brewed Awakening has something for everyone, from iced and hot coffee to delicious sandwiches. They even offer matcha, which cannot be found anywhere else on campus. They also offer items that are allergen-free. Those with gluten allergies can try the snickerdoodles, and gluten-free bread will be coming soon. Dairy-sensitive options are also being provided, including oat milk and almond milk.
Breakfast selections to order are cinnamon rolls or iced coffee with vanilla syrup. For lunch, guests can try the turkey bacon sandwich. Recommended beverages are the house-made lemonade or the iced matcha latte with oat milk. Guests can also check out their wide selection of teas.
Brewed Awakening has special days to look out for, such as scrambled egg day occurring Fridays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. On Tuesdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., Brewed Awakening offers crepes. They sell crepes at $5 for one and $10 for three. Optional fillings to add begin at $1. Choices in fillings include Nutella, peanut butter, cream cheese, blueberry, strawberry, banana, marshmallow creme, and brown sugar. All crepes are made fresh for every order.
Valentine’s Day will also be coming out with limited-time goodies, from red velvet crepes to raspberry mocha lattes.
Brewed Awakening takes Penmen Cash, not to be confused with dining dollars. They also take credit cards, debit cards, and regular cash. It is affordable as well as delectable.
Opening next to Brewed Awakening is Pizza ’32. Pizza ’32 is a space for catering events. Clubs and organizations can begin booking the space for events.
Representative for Pizza ’32, Dawn Cerrato, said they “have the ability to customize space to meet the needs of the group.” Event planners work with the client to satisfy their event needs, like theme, amount of people and tables needed. Pizza ’32 also caters food from outside sources.
Due to COVID, services are limited to hosting 70 people maximum, and the dining selection is limited, but “the goal is to open all food options by fall,” said Cerrato.
