Café Laura: Penn State’s Student-Run Restaurant

Café Laura: Penn State’s Student-Run Restaurant

Have you heard about Café Laura, the a student-run restaurant on campus in the Mateer building? It’s open for lunch, from 11 am to 1 pm, and also offers themed dinners throughout the month. The restaurant allows for students to be involved in a restaurant-like environment, which helps them learn about managing and maintaining a food establishment with real-life experiences.

By Caitlin Wolper

The food they offer includes pizza, salad, soups and a special food item every day. There are also items available that come straight from the Penn State Bakery. Unfortunately, student discounts do not apply, and so you have to pay the full seven dollars for your chicken tenders. Sorry to all those who are used to cheap tenders at their Commons! But believe me: the taste is worth it.

The food is of high quality, and the ambiance of the environment is lovely. After you finish eating, students even come out to take your trays and plates away from you like at any other restaurant you would find here in State College!

By Caitlin Wolper

The food area is set up somewhat like the buffet-style commons. You ask for what food you want, and they put it on your tray. There is a separate section for the bakery items and coffee (Starbucks items are available).

All the employees are very professional and personable, and they are always willing to strike up a conversation as they serve you.

By Caitlin Wolper

What’s great about Café Laura is that you can use your meal points (or any other form of payment that works for you) to eat in a calm environment. It’s also a lovely place to take a date if you don’t want to spend a lot of money on a nice outing.

They take online reservations for their theme dinners from times varying from 5:30 to 7:30 pm on their site.

Café Laura will be going under reconstruction starting May 1. The renovations are aiming to help the restaurant function more smoothly and will allow for the students running it to keep up with the ever-changing restaurant industry.

Top 10 Foods of a Penn State Student

Graphic by Jessie Mayer

College students across the country have some pretty interesting diets, but Penn State students’ diets are perhaps even more unique than what you’d expect on a typical college campus. VALLEY compiled a list of the top 10 foods a Penn Stater eats throughout the course of a single week. Make sure you’ve tried them all!

10. McDonalds French Fries

Pretty much everyone has eaten their fair share of fries from the largest chain restaurant in the world, and after long night out, they’re a staple for Penn State students. Truly iconic in every way.

9. Au Bon Pain

VALLEY can’t even specify a food for ABP, and if you have ever seen the lunch line rush, then you know why. It’s everyone for themselves when it comes to this cafe’s food.

8. Irving’s Coffee

Maybe coffee isn’t technically considered a food group (although VALLEY thinks it should be), but this list wouldn’t be complete without Irving’s coffee drinks. The number of students that go out of their way to enjoy a cup of coffee may be considered crazy … or is it really just a sign of the famous Penn State dedication?

7. Chipotle Bowls & Burritos

With lines out the door every weekend, how could Chipotle’s bowls and burritos not make the list? Maybe the chain restaurant reminds students of their Chipotle at home, or maybe its food just really is that good—even if guac does cost extra.

6. Bagel Crust Breakfast Sandwiches

There is nothing like a great breakfast sandwich to start off your day. Bagel Crust definitely delivers in that department, and Penn State students know it. Whichever sandwich you choose, you simply won’t be disappointed.

5. Waffle Shop Omelettes

The Waffle Shop’s portions are always huge, but somehow the omelettes are always bigger than your head. Plus, having breakfast here is as classic as it gets in State College.

4. College Pizza

Every Penn State student has had a slice of College Pizza at least once in his or her life. The prime location may have something to do with it, but either way it’s a must.

3. Yallah Taco

Although you may have to face the cold in the winter while waiting outside for this one, it’s well worth it. Yallah hits on that Mexican fix that students want and also happens to be open until 3 a.m. on weekends—perfect for after a night out.

2. Canyon Pizza

Even though Canyon’s location change threw loyal customers for a loop, it’s still the cheapest pizza around and that alone makes it one of the best places for Penn State students to go.

1. Gumby’s Pokey Sticks

Similar to pizza, sure … but honestly so much better. Somehow making bread into strips and putting the sauce on the side is transformative, ultimately making pokey sticks VALLEY ’s number one!
