Farewell Broad Street Books

cafesign

As the school year comes to a close, so does Broad Street Books, Wesleyan’s bookstore for the past fourteen years. In 2003 we joined together with Wesleyan and Follett Higher Ed to create Wesleyan’s bookstore and cafe. The former employees of Atticus Books became the first staff of Broad St Books and Red & Black Cafe. For fourteen years we worked side by side. While the people who worked for the bookstore would change, the Red & Black Cafe came to know so many of their staff, through the busiest of times and the darkest of days.

Recently we have observed the professionalism and dedication of their staff as they worked to liquidate the stock and bring the store to a close. We wish them well in their future endeavors and always leave open the possibility to work together in the future.

As for what becomes of the Red & Black Cafe, we’re not going anywhere. Wesleyan is our home and we will continue to serve students and the entire Wesleyan community. Several ideas are being discussed as to what will occupy the space left by the bookstore. We have our fingers crossed and will make any announcements when appropriate.

Enjoy your summer,

Karen & Ed

Eggs Benedict with fresh Asparagus one of many Weekend Brunch specials

You’ve heard about it.  They have cookie dough.  Maybe you even ate there during WesFest.  But now you’re here, standing in line, with a crowd around you, and you hear one of the cashiers yell, “Can I help who’s next?”  

WesWings can be a little daunting the first few times.  Some will panic and just order a burger and fries or a chicken sandwich.  Our menu is pretty extensive and the choices are vast.

  • What kind of bread?
  • Regular or spicy fries?
  • What kind of sauce?
  • Here or to go?

To list just a few of the questions you’ll be asked.

So here are a few ideas to help you get the most out of our little dining establishment.

  1. Water is free, cups are not.  We charge 25 cents for a water cup so if you don’t want to buy a drink, bring your own mug.  We do this to reduce waste, not make money.
  2. To Go containers are free.  Our portions are big and delicious so why not bring it home.

What to order?
