Bert's Cafe Website

Bert's Cafe is on the first floor of the UGLI. They serve the usual coffee drinks (lattes, mochas, cappucinos) along with their signature specialty drinks (Michigan Mocha and Cramming Caramel are two popular options). All of their coffee is fair trade. They also serve a variety of baked goods, including cookies and brownies from Great Harvest Bread Company, croissants, bagels, muffins, and danishes.   For meal options, Bert's Cafe provides a number of sandwiches, burritos from Burrito Joint, and meals from Jamaican Jerk Pit. Come stop by to get some coffee or food and relax, study, or hang out.

Check Bert's Cafe's web site for hours; during parts of the academic year, they are sometimes open 24 hours a day.

The cafe is named after alumnus Bertram Askwith (LSA '31), who also funded the Askwith Media Library

The existing walls will be removed and replaced by an open lounge area with tables, chairs and couches. The café will serve beverages, snacks and health foods - a menu similar to that of MuJo Café, the coffee shop at the Duderstadt Center on North Campus.

In a ribbon-cutting ceremony that featured balloons, blue and white tents and protesters, University officials dedicated a new café in the lobby of the Shapiro Undergraduate Library yesterday afternoon.
