Tonight at Southeastern the Mane Dish cafeteria will host “Late Night Breakfast” from 9-11 p.m. The purpose for Late Night Breakfast is for students to head over to the cafeteria to eat a hot and full course breakfast. Also, allowing students to take a break from reading notes, practicing math problems, or whichever way the students prepare themselves for finals.
“Late Night Breakfast is a very popular event that students look forward to attending every semester. It gives students a break from studying while being served breakfast items by faculty and staff who wish them luck with finals,” said Marketing Instructor and former Marketing Manager for Aramark and Southeastern Dining Services, April Kemp.
The Mane Dish will serve traditional breakfast foods including pancakes, biscuits, waffles, sausage, bacon, grits, cereal, milk, juice, and coffee. Meal plan holders will be able to eat for free and $6.25 plus tax for non-meal plan holders.
“I haven’t skipped a Late Night Breakfast yet and though it’s not healthy to eat late at night, it’s finals week so eating whenever you want is acceptable,” said Nursing major Holly Spadoni. “The cafeteria also vamped up their nutritional value in the food so it’s a lot better for the students to snack at the cafeteria rather than on a bag of chips and a coke, just go easy on the syrup.”
Last year, many students took full advantage of Late Night Breakfast because students were going back for seconds and for some thirds, before returning back to their studies. At the previous Late Night Breakfast, the line was down the staircase and wrapped around the corner on the first floor of the union. The students only experience this event once a semester and arrive at the cafeteria with empty stomachs then leaving with full ones along with some fuel for the brain to push through the rest of the week.
“The breakfast food is really good and for some reason breakfast food always taste better at night,” said Southeastern Dining Services intern Britni Vegas. “It is also enjoyable because you and all your friends can get together one last time before school lets out and just not worry about finals for about an hour.”
The Mane Dish will be open for regular dining hours. Tonight, dinner is served from 4-8 p.m. and following is Late Night Breakfast.
