Your fiery passion and curiosity are reflected in the many fresh food options and endless coffee combinations. 

Capricorn: Bruin Buzz

The Bruin Buzz is possibly the most convenient coffee spot on campus, perfect for a Capricorn who values their time, especially in the face of major ambition. That being said, Bruin Buzz also reflects your more mischievous side with options not seen anywhere else on campus such as bottled kombucha and several exciting pastries. For the student on the go and unafraid to dream big, Bruin Buzz is a great pit stop during a busy day.

Aquarius: Bruin Cafe

A true humanitarian, Bruin Cafe provides a much-needed to-go service for busy students on the Hill.

Constantly testing new products and ideas, Bruin Cafe embodies the Aquarius energy of experimentation and the element of surprise.

Pisces: Kerckhoff Coffeehouse

Your dreamy and imaginative qualities are reflected in the indie playlists constantly playing in the background of Kerckhoff Coffeehouse. The wooden paneling and historical lighting transport students to a different reality much like how a Pisces seeks to coexist within reality and fantasy. Come to Kerckhoff for great vibes and a good time, all within a romanticized setting.

The many cafe options available on campus and on the Hill can be overwhelming at first. Hopefully this article will help you navigate and find your favorite spot to get your daily coffee from!
