NMB FastLane Cafe - No Longer Only Gluten Free
Released January 13th, 2015 by Michael Baxter
As many of you know, FastLane Cafe in NMB took an unannounced transformation this year to a Gluten Free menu, and I’d like to thank everyone for giving me lots of feedback about it. After a bit of meeting to bring your feedback forward to higher authorities, they’ve agreed to stock both gluten free and non-gluten free foods to cater to a more all-encompassing market.
Look forward to some tastier foods at FastLane, but in keeping themselves as a gluten free destination on campus, they’ll still keep a variety of gluten free options. Also, keep a look out for a (possible) survey in the near future from Hospitality Services about what kinds of things we want to see from our little FastLane Cafe.
Hopefully, we can all work together to make sure that we’re getting the kind of food service that we want, and that Brown’s can be profitable enough to keep FastLane in business in NMB!
