Iowa State’s Hub recently re-opened after a nine-month renovation and has proven to be a popular destination on the Cyclone campus. The Hub features Heaping Plato, a Mediterranean concept and The Roasterie, a Kansas City-owned coffee company. To create an authentic taste and feel to the Heaping Plato Mediterranean concept, ISU Dining serves shawarma, a vertical spit-roasted meat that is carved while hungry students, faculty and staff watch and wait for their order. In addition to the renowned flavor-filled KC coffee, The Roasterie concept offers gelato on the menu.
Bakergroup worked with the design team to accommodate a high number of customers and to allow for quick and maximized service at this busy hot spot. Another popular feature of The Hub is the variety in seating options for those studying between classes or meeting friends for a coffee break.
