Student-run 800 Café To Serve Spring-themed Lunches

The 800 Café, a restaurant managed entirely by NDSU students, will serve two spring-themed lunches in upcoming weeks.

On Thursday, March 21, and Friday, March 22, dietetics students Johanna Christenson and Brooke Nell will manage their lunch themed, All-American Spring Barbeque.

The meal will begin with a berry salad accompanied by poppy seed dressing, followed by a California turkey burger served with chipotle mayo and green bean fries. The meal will finish with a modified banana split.

Then on Thursday, April 4, and Friday, April 5, dietetics students Leah Haak and Alyssa Wiegandt will manage their spring-themed lunch.

The meal will begin with a tossed salad with homemade poppy seed dressing, followed by chicken Florentine soup. Frozen chocolate mousse served with fresh strawberries drizzled in chocolate sauce will finish the meal.

The 800 Café is located in the Family Life Center room 312. Seating begins at 11 a.m. and the last seating starts at 12:15 p.m.

The dining experiences cost $8 per meal. Reservations are encouraged because seating is limited. To make a reservation, contact Ronda Klubben or 701-231-7487. Parking is available in the visitor’s lot on the NDSU campus.

The 800 Café will serve lunch on Thursdays and Fridays until April 26. Four-meal punch cards also are available for $30.

Café 800 allows juniors and seniors majoring in dietetics to operate their own restaurant for an entire semester, serving food with china and linen. It is part of the class, Foodservice Management I, instructed by Sherri Nordstrom Stastny, registered dietitian and assistant professor in health, nutrition, and exercise sciences.
