Finding the perfect crepe can be a challenge, especially on campus. In fall 2015, Cache la Crepes will offer a variety of treats in the basement of the Lory Student Center.
Cache la Crepes will be located next to Ramskeller and will serve crepes, smoothies, coffee, soda and ice cream.
Doni Luckutt, director of marketing at the LSC, said additions to the student center are a direct result of student feedback.
“We survey the students every spring to see what the student center is doing to meet student needs — what you all would like to see done differently and what you would like to have,” Luckutt said. “In our last survey, food was a reoccurring topic.”
Assistant Director of LSC Dining Services Geoff Valdez said he hopes the new shop will increase student traffic in the basement of the LSC.
“We are trying to get more bodies down here and let the students get together for whatever’s happening,” Valdez said.
According to Valdez, the construction of the venue is scheduled to be complete in April, but due to the approaching end of the year, it will not be open for business until fall.
The student center will also be opening another coffee shop in time for the next school year.
“If you walk by the theatre right now on the way to the Curfman Gallery, you’ll see kind of an open space, but it will be a Starbucks concept coffee shop,” Luckutt said.
