Amelia's Cafe reopens in Armstrong Hall

Lunch, snacks, Starbucks coffee and other drink options return to the College of Engineering's flagship building.

Amelia's Cafe has reopened for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic. It is offering its full menu, including Starbucks coffee. Salads, other sandwiches and wraps are plentiful, along with chips and other snacks.

"We're happy to be open, it's made a lot of people happy," says Anna, the Purdue Dining unit manager working at Amelia's. They were initially open 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, but have since extended hours to 4 p.m. to serve students leaving class at 3.

Amelia's is located in the basement of the Neil Armstrong Hall of Engineering, adjacent to the study area. It can be accessed via the staircase in the Kurz Atrium, on the west end of the building.
