Bon Appetit now offers late meal option at Barbara’s Place

Barbara’s Place has created a so-called night swipe for which students can use their meal plan after regular dining hours at The Spot.

The night swipe allows students to use their meal plan instead of their Leo bucks, Monday through Friday from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. 

Students can get an entrée, two daily special sides of their choice of fries, whole fruit, or a side salad and a fountain beverage.

“The late night swipe was a way for us to help us accommodate students, who may not be able to make it during our dinner services hours at The Spot that’s why they don’t cut into their Leo bucks or pay out of pocket so they will get a dinner meal,” Brianna Moger, Barbara’s Place supervisor’s cook, said.

Moger said that this year Barb’s will have weekly specials,  which are also available with the  night swipe. 

And she said she is open to feedback from students to make adjustments as necessary. 

Cori Navarro, sophomore psychology and theater major, said she likes the night swipe option since two-to-three days out of the week she is not able to get dinner at The Spot because of late classes. 

She’s glad to use her meal swipes, instead of her Leo dollars to cover the meals that she has missed.

Naty Castellon, junior kinesiology major, said that students with night classes in general  will benefit from the night swipe option.

“I think it’s a lot more convenient, I know from last semester I would prefer to have the late night swipe because I ran out of my Leo dollars really early in the semester,” she said.“I didn’t really buy any more meals from Barb’s or have many options so I feel like it would’ve been helpful.”

Jaycob Gomez, junior kinesiology major, said that the late night swipe is a way to get a good meal at a time when The Spot is not open which is very helpful. 

However, Gomez wishes that Barbara’s Place has more variety in the food, instead of having the same thing every day.

“I know it’s in its early stages but hopefully next semester or next year they can add many new items that the student can use,” he said.
