Sun Catfe open for business

By Edgar Gonzalez, Staff Reporter

The Suncatfe which is now open is a new place that will offer students more resource to get food on main campus said Norma Cervantes, Suncatfe department manager.

It is open Monday-Thursday from 7:30 am to 6:00 pm and Fridays from 7:30 am to 3:00 pm and is located between the SSC and MS building,

“What we sell here is pretty basic but we do have a lot more variety than the SRC building café and we are still bringing in new food,” she said.

Some of the new food choices that will be offered in the Suncatfe include hot dogs, corn dogs, and pizza, she said.

They do not cook any food but the food comes in freshly pre-made, Cervantes said.

“Dion’s for example brings us food daily and they are made fresh in the Dion’s down the street and brought to us fresh every day,” she said.

Most of the variety of snacks offered at the SRC café will be served at the Suncatfe but there are some exceptions such as the Starbucks specialty drinks which are exclusively sold there, she said.

“I would encourage students to come and check it out and keep visiting since they are bringing in new products on a regular basis,” Cervantes said.

The style of this building is very nice and it is much more accessible to many students in MS, KC, and the rest of the buildings located around this area, she said.

“We are also hoping to get more frizzy drinks which is similar to an ICEE I would say with different flavors,” she said.

The Suncatfe’s opening date was delayed since some of the machines and equipment did not arrive on time, Cervantes said.

“The new store makes it very convenient for students who have classes on this side of campus to get things to eat and I like that a lot since summer is coming up,” said Pre-Health Science major Jose Rascon.

The nearest restaurant is very far and it is a little inconvenient for students to walk there, he said.

“I’m planning to go to the Suncatfe very often now that the summer is about to start, especially for the drinks,” said Abraham Gonzalez Business Administration major.

  1. Getting rid of the cafeteria is the absolute worst thing CNM has ever done. For people with dietary restrictions, there is really no healthy options in these “convenience store” set-ups. We used to have wonderful, hot meals and it’s all garbage now. This has got to be changed, it’s really terrible stuff they’re selling students.
