The popular Eagles Roast Café will soon be on the move to a new and more spacious location closer to the cafeteria.

According to café manager Jessica Grazier, they will move to a bigger and better space by October 15. 

I don’t mind [the new location], something new, more convenient. [If] anything it will bring more people because it is near the cafeteria”

— Evan Snyder

Since its grand opening last fall, the café has been a tremendous success.  According to Grazier, the café averages approximately 200 customers per day.

The café is currently open from 7:30 a.m – 4 p.m. and is staffed by students from the high school. Students can buy items before and after school and during their study halls or lunches.

The drink menu includes regular and decaf coffee, iced coffee with flavored creamers, specialty fresh brewed iced teas, hot tea, hot chocolate, flavored and regular bottled water, soda, Galliker’s lemonade and iced tea, and energy drinks. Food items available are cookies, pretzels, muffins, and chips.

Improvements at the new location will include much more space, including new stools, couches, tables, a Chromebook charging station, and two more flat-screen televisions along with several new menu items.

The cafe’s old location will be converted a “grab and go” breakfast station and will still be open in the mornings and perhaps for events in the evening that are held in the auditorium.

Junior Lauren Ross can’t wait for the new location to open.

“I like that it’s moving because [the new location] is more chill,” said Ross.

The new location is where the Eagle Inn restaurant was about 10 years ago when the vocational department had its own food service program.

The final move should take a day or less, said Grazier.

Most students are looking forward to the move.

“I don’t mind [the new location], something new, more convenient,” said sophomore Evan Snyder, “[if] anything it will bring more people because it is near the cafeteria.”  

However, not all students are happy about the move.

“I like the old location because it doesn’t take me too long to get there from most of my classes.  If its all the way down by the cafeteria, it’s going to take a lot longer to go to the cafe,” said senior Ava McCracken.

But no matter where it is located, students still love having the cafe at the high school.

“I love the café,” Snyder said. “Good food,” added sophomore Paige Webster.

I like the old location because it doesn’t take me too long to get there from most of my classes. ”

    as much as i love the cafe and as much as i’m looking forward to the move, there’s one thing i wish it had; the buffalo chicken dip. it used to be something you could purchase near the constantly-shut window near one of the entrances in the cafeteria. i miss my babies

    I love the cafe! I like the old location more, however. It’s easier to get there, get what you need, and be to class on time. The move is going to take away getting things in between classes. I love how spacious the new place is though!

    Although the new location is farther away I like the look of the new place! I’ve seen it walking to the cafeteria.
