Coffee shop a one-stop solution for students

Nov. 21, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- Since opening in 1998 the John Deaver Drinko Library has been a one-stop shop for students looking to study, check-out books or borrow movies. It's also home to a coffee shop providing students a chance to pick up breakfast or a snack on the go.

The shop also features a variety of snacks, salads and teas.

"The coffee shop has always had pretty much the same mix of coffees, lattes and cappuccinos over the years as well as baked goods," said Chris Wellman, director of Sodexo at Marshall University. "One of the things we've added to the Drinko Coffee Shop are 'Simply to Go' sandwiches and salads. These are made over in the kitchen in the (Memorial) Student Center. We also make the baked goods on campus."

It also serves Starbucks coffee.

"We brew Starbucks coffee at the Drinko Coffee shop, but it's a little different from the Starbucks," Wellman said. "We do try to keep the coffee selections compatible with each other. If people don't have time to get to the other side of campus they can get a similar drink here. We're running a similar promotion to what is going on with Starbucks with the holiday flavors. We have items like gingerbread lattes and crème brulee lattes which come out on the first of November."

Lunch options include a roast beef and cheddar sandwich on a Kaiser roll for $3.89 and a chef salad for $3.89. Among the baked goods are bagels ($1.29), scones (1.99) and gingerbread loaf ($1.99).

Coffee options include café lattes ($2.79 small, $3.55 medium, $3.99 large), cappucino ($2.79, $3.55, $3.90), iced coffee ($1.95, $2.45, $2.95.) and Tazo iced tea ($1.50, $1.95, $2.45).

The Drinko Cofee Shop is located at 1 John Marshall Drive, adjacent to the Drinko Library on the Huntington campus. It is open from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. from Monday through Thursday and from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday. It is closed on Saturdays and Sundays. Cash and all major credit and debit cards are accepted. Marshall Students can use Flexpoints and Herd Points. For more information, contact Marshall Dining at 304-696-2544.
