Drinks-  Too many to list.

Our coffee is the best on campus and we have a huge selection of cold and hot coffees, espresso, chai etc..

Smoothies  We use real frozen fruits not some smoothie mix.  Start with yogurt, soy milk, almond mild or coconut water. Add strawberries, raspberries, mangos, bananas along with other mix-ins like spinach, chia seeds, wheatgrass or peanut butter powder. We have a great selection of specialty smoothies and everyday there is a special Smoothie Bowl The complete list of smoothies can be found here

Finally our specials.

We feature 3 or 4 sandwich specials every day along with our Grilled Cheese of the Day.  On weekends, our made to order omelet specials are amazing.  If you’re looking for something a little more civilized than our big sister, WesWings’ breakfast pail, then our weekend brunch is the answer.
