John Arthur Café

Due to COVID 19 the John Arthur Café has closed for the semester.

Have you tried the John Arthur Café?

Located on the second floor of the Fine Arts building (FA207), the John Arthur Café has an outdoor patio and access from the Spine. It's a great place to hang out, catch up on work and grab a quick drink or snack.

All products are baked fresh daily — bagels are from Best Bagels in Town located in Endwell. Coffee is supplied from Mr. Koffee. We value freshness and quality in everything we sell.

Looking for a space to hold a meeting or a get together? The John Arthur Café may be reserved Monday through Thursday between 5 and 10 p.m.
