Fontbonne University’s newest campus hot spot, a coffee shop proudly serving Starbucks® Coffee, officially opened for business Monday, Feb. 12.

The Fontbonne Coffeehouse has taken up residence in the Taylor Library lobby and will serve Starbucks® coffee and coffee-friendly snacks and products. The full Starbucks® drink menu will be available. The café will be open Monday – Thursday, 7:30 a.m. – 7 p.m.; Friday, 7:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.; and Sunday,  1 – 6 p.m. during the regular school year.

In addition to the drinks served in the café, Starbucks® coffee will be available in Ryan Dining Hall and the DSAC Caf.

This new addition is made possible by a donation from Aladdin, Fontbonne’s on-campus food service provider.

“The coffee shop is a gift-in-kind from Aladdin to be used for a campus renovation project,” said Carla Hickman, associate vice president for student affairs.
