Make sure to check the lunch line order which will be posted on the left hand side of B110 (the entrance for the lunch line). This order is not set in stone and will change.

Because of the heat, the DeLaSalle Cafe will serve a cold sandwich bar, cold salads, and jello pudding today. Hamburgers will be available for purchase but the Cafe will likely not serve french fries or pizza because the heat produced by cooking those foods will add to an already hot kitchen. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
