Shiny new espresso machines and the Starbucks sign are visible in Olin’s new Bauer Hall Cafe and amping up anticipation for the opening of the first Starbucks on the Wash U campus. The full-service cafe will be managed by Aramark and offer hot dishes as well as a salad bar, drinks, and snacks. New staff began training today.
Coffee is expected to be flowing in time for the first day of classes Aug. 25. Meanwhile, enjoy this video of the construction that’s been underway this summer to complete the Cafe and two more classrooms in Bauer Hall. Thanks to Diane Grimsley, senior project engineer at Tarlton for the behind the scenes tour.
