Cafeteria makes changes for new year
LCC added a cafeteria to the Gannon Building last year — The Gannon Commons — and officials are making a few changes to it this year, including the hours.
Subway will open at 9 a.m. on Aug. 20 and 21. From Aug. 24 to Dec. 11, the sub shop will be open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Einstein Bros will open Aug. 24 and will be open from Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Pizza Hut opens Aug. 24 as well and will be serving Monday through Thursday from 10:30 a.m. until 6 p.m.
The Grand Avenue Market provides pop, pre-made sandwiches and other “grab n’ go” products. It is open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday during fall semester, and 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Fridays.
The restaurant’s grill is open from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday to make specialized entrees.
Grand Avenue Market Chef Jamie Smith said even more changes are coming.
“LCC has seminars and meetings in the conference rooms across the hall that we will do more catering for,” Smith said.
Smith said students are enjoying the luxury of eating close to class instead of having to walk to other area restaurants.
“We’re getting pretty good feedback; they like the change and variety,” Smith said. “People always have suggestions of what they would like to see, and meal changes, and things like that.”
With many vendors to choose from, students including Sydney Kester have their favorites.
“(Grand Avenue Market) has a lot of options that are different every day,” Kester said. “I also really appreciate the fact that they have vegetarian options.”
