Introductory word

Students and staff in the main faculty building may look forward to new assortment in the bistro on the ground floor in the new academic year.  The Faculty has terminated its cooperation with current tenant; UP Accommodation and Dining will provide the service from September. However, it will remain closed during summer months due to necessary preparations as well as the Spaghetti bistro on the 6th floor.

Accommodation and Dining management is going to open the bistro on September 1, opening hours have been a subject to negotiation. Customers, however, will certainly record larger variety of food. "We have to adapt to the existing conditions and respect certain limitations. But we can benefit from a great experience we have acquired running other snack bars and take advantage of the nearby faculty canteen as well. Our menu will include vegetable salads, which our very popular among our customers, fresh fruit salads; we will prepare yoghurt with fruits and homemade muesli, variety of soups and our boarders will be able to order a pizza that we bake in our canteen, "said Josef Suchánek, the director of Accommodation and Dinning.

Customers will be able to pay using ISIC and employee cards just as they do in the canteen.

We have chosen Accommodation and Dining Management because it has an extensive experience and as the university facility it is able to cope with customer fluctuations, depending on the academic year. We expect the new operator to ensure a wider range of refreshment that will desirably complement the offer of the spaghetti bistro on the sixth floor, "said Jan Zimova, the Secretary.
