Nutwood Cafe, on the first floor of College Park at CSUF, could be closing The Grill this summer. The Nutwood Cafe grill currently offers a variety of food ranging from eggs for breakfast to burgers and grilled chicken for lunch and dinner.

“We are looking into adjusting what is offered at Nutwood Cafe with a rebrand of the store, which includes closing The Grill,” according to an email sent to the Daily Titan by campus dining.

The Nutwood Cafe also offers Togo’s sandwiches, serves Starbucks coffee and has a wide variety of snacks and beverages.

The Grill employees would be transferred to other campus dining locations but Crystal Newman, campus dining marketing manager, could not specify which locations.  

There are no official plans for what may replace The Grill but “more information might be decided in July,” Newman said in an email.

Joshua Fleischer, a communications major at Cal State Fullerton, is a regular at Nutwood Cafe. He said he visits the cafe at least once a week due to its proximity to his classes.

“I can walk in if I’m heading to class a little early, get something to eat, something to drink. They have snacks and all kinds of stuff,” Fleischer said.

Raul Reyes, an accounting major at CSUF, would like to see healthier food options replace the grill.

I would say maybe a Poke Express that would be a good option, something that gives you an option of tofu, or the substitute of meat itself,” Reyes said.
