Café 1894 has moved with the times!

The appeal and potential for vegan and vegetarian food is expanding to include a much larger consumer base seeking healthier foods.

To this end Café 1894 has increased its offerings, all served in compostable packaging.

We have a delicious Vegan Polenta Bruschetta w/a Olive Tapenade, fresh rice paper rolls, moreish Spicy Tofu Taco Salad, scrummy Flourless Chocolate Torte and Gluten Free Citrus Tarts to name a few.

Café 1894 continues to deliver wonderful coffee from Common Good, a company committed to an ethical sustainable business.

There is also a larger variety of slices and cakes that cater to the gluten and dairy free as well as those with a hunger for the divinely sweet!

Hungry? The Shilling Club is changing

Welcome back everyone! We have been spending the holidays making The Shilling Club fresh and exciting for 2018.

We are currently rolling out a few improvements and are excited to show you what we have done. This all includes a fresh new menu, which launches on 12 February. To celebrate we will give 10% discount on all downstairs lunch bookings on Mondays, Tuesdays AND Wednesdays during February.

Watch our Facebook page for menu information.  https://www.facebook.com/TheShillingClub

We have already been trialling some new items – the Reuben Sandwich keeps selling out. Also look out for Buttermilk Fried Chicken and our soon to be famous lamb salad with feta, beans and beetroot.

Nitro Coffee is about to be your new morning wake up.  Pop in and ask us about it.

Hungry? Book now and we will see you real soon.

Introducing the UC Community Gardens!

New to campus, or been here a couple of years? Either way, you may not have realised that UC has a beautiful community garden, right here on campus!

Our gardens are your gardens too – they provide a relaxing spot to take a break, eat your lunch, or catch up with friends, right in the middle of campus.

Feel like getting your hands dirty? Want to learn more about organic gardening? Keen to meet some like-minded people? Come and join one of our weekly working bees! Spend some time in the garden, and take home some organic vegetables for dinner…

When: Every Friday afternoon, from 1pm-5pm (summer months) and 12pm-4pm (winter months).

Where: Okeover Community Garden, off Engineering Road.

Just bring some closed toe shoes, a drink bottle and a smile, we have the rest covered. Whether you’re already a keen gardener, or just starting out, we’d love to meet you!
