Hot selections served earlier in the cafeteria!
Some days, your stomach won't wait until the clock says "lunchtime." To satisfy the early birds, the Food Court is now offering hot lunch items beginning at 10 a.m. The grill is unavailable from 10-10:30 a.m. each day as they transition from breakfast to lunch. But you can now still get hot items during this time, including:
- Cici's Kitchen (home style food)
- Piazza Italian Eatery items
- Hot soup
So stop in for something hot whenever your hunger strikes.
