Coffee Shop

Enjoy our espresso bar

Charles and Sharon Olson Commons and Café

Ice teaCommonly known as the Coffee Shop, the Café is a convenient location on campus to enjoy an espresso drink crafted by our own trained baristas. We offer a rotation of freshly baked pastries in the morning, and add cookies and other snacks in the afternoon.

Take a few minutes to beat the winter chill by sitting around our fireplace; gather with your friends for a board game; or chat with the baristas as they perfect your drink: all at once relaxing and engaging, the Café is quickly becoming a central part of the community at Luther.
