Whether you like plain or flavored cream cheese is all relative, but you may want to head at the speed of light to the new Einstein Bros. Bagels.
Fort Wayne's first Einstein Bros. Bagels opens at 7:30 a.m. Sept. 9 on the ground floor of Kettler Hall at Purdue Fort Wayne, 2101 Coliseum Blvd.
Grand opening festivities will take place the week of Sept. 23. Details are still coming.
“I know many students are very excited to have Einstein’s Bagels here on our campus,” says Honey Aung Win, student body president, in a statement from the university. “When we officially announced they were coming to campus last spring we had samples from their menu, and the feedback we received was very good. The students are also excited because Einstein Bros. is new, affordable, convenient, and delicious for their dining experiences here on campus.”
“We are thrilled to partner with Einstein Bros. and we’re looking forward to serving the campus in a new way,” Eric May, food service director with Aramark Campus Dining, said, according to the university news release. “Aramark will continue to offer dining services in Don’s at Walb with daily specials, including Oath Pizza, and at Java Spot in the Walb Atrium, featuring breakfast and lunch sandwiches, salads, grab-and-go items, and Starbucks beverages.”
Einstein Bros.’ menu offers fresh-baked gourmet, specialty, and classic bagels; more than half-a-dozen kinds of regular or low-fat cream cheese; breakfast and lunch sandwiches; a wide selection of different sweets and snacks; fountain soft drinks, hot and iced teas, and regular and specialty Caribou Coffee drinks. This is also Caribou Coffee’s first Fort Wayne location.
“Einstein Bros. Bagels was selected by the Purdue Fort Wayne Student Government Association after numerous student responses asking for name-brand dining options on campus,” Krissy Creager, vice chancellor for student affairs, said in the news release. “Einstein’s is a great choice because its menu includes options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.”
Einstein Bros. Bagels is also included on the university’s meal plan. Hours will be 7:30 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 7:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Friday. It will be closed on weekends, holidays, and whenever classes are not in session.
