The Ready for the World Café is now open in the Hermitage Room on the third floor of the University Center. Open to students, faculty, staff and the public, the café serves lunch from noon to 2 p.m. each Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
Diners pay $10 for the all-you-can-eat buffet or $8.50 for a plate of food to carry out.
The café is operated by students in the advanced food production and service management class. ARAMARK, UT’s provider of dining services, provides the food and its employees do the cooking. Students provide the recipes and manage the employees.
The students chose the name Ready for the World Café because their project fits well into the university’s international and intercultural initiative, also called Ready for the World. The café will operate for the spring semester only.
