In The News: CrossRoads is UConn’s first meatless cafe

Susan Dunne, Hartford Courant

Each year, UConn’s Dining Services department queries students and employees about food preferences and sensitivities, to provide them with what they want and need. Ethan Haggerty, an official in the department, noticed something: “There are more and more vegetarians and vegans than ever before.”

On Aug. 30, the university opened the first dining space in its history with no meat on the menu. CrossRoads Café, in the Wilbur Cross Building where Wilbur’s Café used to be, is open to the public.

Haggerty, area manager for several campus cafes, said CrossRoads is not just for the plant-based crowd. He’s going after “flexitarians,” people who eat mostly vegetarian meals but occasionally eat meat or fish.

“They’re looking for delicious food and are willing to try plant-based options,” he said. “It’s all about giving people more choices.”
