Albert's (as in Kingsbury or Einstein) Cafe to Open in Kingsbury

Dining Services is continuing its plan to better serve UNH students with the scheduled Oct. 1 opening of Albert’s Café in the main entrance of the newly renovated Kingsbury Hall.

Home to the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, the College Road building is named for Albert Kingsbury, a professor of mechanical engineering from 1889 to 1899. But the café’s name works equally well for the college’s ability to conjure up images of the theoretical physicist Albert Einstein.

Albert’s will offer such “grab-and-go” food as ready-made sandwiches, subs and salads. There will also be breakfast sandwiches and bagels, with a microwave and toaster nearby for students to use. A reach-in cooler will be stocked with cold drinks and Peet’s premium coffee will be served.

“This is part of a larger initiative by Dining Services to provide more food service options to students,” says Rich LeHoullier, a dining area manager. “Students can get in and get out quickly between classes.”

The café will have a small area to seat about 12 people. Cash, credit cards and dining dollars will be accepted.

Initially, the café will be open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“We’re going to start off slow. If the demand increases, we’ll look at nights and weekends,” LeHoullier says.

Albert’s opening follows on heels of other Dining Services’ initiatives that have ramped up options for students and other members of the UNH community. Improvements have been made at the MUB food court and the Wildcatessen at Stillings Hall has been completely renovated, almost doubling it size and expanding its menu and small grocery items.
