Ines Sanchez, a manager of Cypress Café.

Ines Sanchez, 26, Criminal Justice major, manager of the Cypress Cafe was happy to inform The Chronicle about their new changes and exciting news.

“I have been working at Cypress Cafe for two years now,” said Sanchez. “When I got here, we just changed our meals to Sbarros. That alone has been a success.”

This year has been a success for the cafe. As they add more healthier meals, their traffic has increased, according to Sanchez. Cafe management had a meeting with the Associated Students’ Food Committee, and students are pushing more for breakfast. So now the cafe is extending breakfast until it is all gone for the day.

“We are now trying to decide what we should bring in next,” she adds. “Associated Students does surveys on what they like and do not like about meals and we love the fact they are doing this because this will help us whether it is good or bad.”
