Welcome to Uniquely Caffeinated Cafes

UC Cafes strive to provide the campus community an exceptional and convenient dining experience on a daily basis focused on customer service.  Our menus include a wide variety of drinks, soups, sandwiches, salads, and snacks designed to accommodate those with dietary and nutritional needs or preferences.

New for Fall 2020: UC Cafes (Beanery, Up & Atom, Bookworms, Chem, Wilburs) will accept Flex Passes as payment. The meal equivalency of a Flex Pass is $7.00 and can only be used once in a transaction. If you go over you will need to pay with cash, credit/debit card, Husky Bucks or points. There is no limit on the number of times you use a Flex Pass during the day.
