Students Warm Up to Judd Cellar Coffee Shop
When students returned to campus in August, a hot cup of coffee was waiting for them in the newly transformed Judd Cellar Coffee Shop, which proudly serves Starbucks.
Once a laundry area in the basement of Eliza H. Judd Residence Hall, the stylish and cozy coffee spot has been a hit with students, says manager Holly Boyce of Sodexo (which operates all campus dining locations). “In the mornings, students meet here or do their schoolwork and business is very steady,” she says. “At night, though, it’s packed with students who want a fun place to socialize.”
SMC students who purchase a meal plan can pop into Judd Cellar for a coffee and muffin or fruit in the mornings on their way to class. In the afternoons and evening, the shop offers individual pizzas and sodas as a tasty and fast alternative to the more substantial fare available in the Burgess Student Center Dining Hall and Ellis Hall Sub Connection.
And then there are the coffee drinks, all of which are 100 percent Starbucks products – made from the same ingredients and recipes and on the same equipment as at your neighborhood Starbucks location. The Judd Cellar Coffee Shop offers a full range of Starbucks drinks, including holiday favorites like Peppermint Mocha and Chestnut Praline Latte.
While the location isn’t technically open to the public, visitors to campus are always welcome. The next time you come back to SMC, pop in for a tasty beverage!
