I was pleasantly surprised when I visited the cafe for the first time. It's an interesting feature of our new gym, but I think it's a nice touch. Not only does the cafe feature a range of coffee and tea drinks (they brew Starbucks here), but it also allows guests to choose from a variety of healthy meal and snack options. It also offers students who have classes in the gym the chance to grab some breakfast on the way to or from class in the morning, or a snack in the afternoon or evening. It's a great place to meet friends, perhaps before heading into the fitness center to work out, or to get some refreshments afterwards. And, as an added bonus, it provides a relatively clam and quiet area for students to study or have group meetings. Here are some photos to give you an idea of what you'd experience if you were a student here at UNC Asheville.
