An underutilized lobby space in Fitzgerald Student Services Building was renovated and transformed into a contemporary retail café unlike anything on campus. “There’s nothing like this in Reno either,” says Russ Meyer, associate director for Housing Operations and Dining Services. “Students told us they wanted something fun, something, cool, and something they couldn’t get anywhere else in town. They also wanted real flavors, generous portions, and a good value. And they were adamant about no national brands. Designers created a 400-square-foot back-of-house space, a 700-square-foot servery; a 1,900-square foot circulation/seating area; and an 800-square-foot lounge. The menu features Forklift Burritos and Bowls (Chipotle-style made to order) and Waffler sweet and savory waffles and waffle sandwiches along with a Portland Roasting Company Espresso Bar.
