Café Diablo opened its doors to students for the first time this year on the morning of Oct. 23. The student-run café sells baked goods made by the ROP Food Service class as well as hot drinks to wash them down and wake students up.
The baked goods, which included cookies, brownies, coffee cake and scones, are sold for 50 cents apiece. “We each get to choose what we make, so it does vary every year,” senior Krystle Phelps said.
A group of six students arrived at school at 7 a.m. to set up shop, and the class prepared the baked goods during class on Monday and Tuesday.
“Each group has to submit about six things to be sold, so my group made white chocolate macadamia nut cookies,” Phelps said. “We made 21 or 22, gave [up] six, and kept the rest for ourselves.”
“According to café workers, Café Diablo will most likely open once a month, but possibly more.
“I’d be definitely willing to do it as much as possible, but it all depends on how much we can get together,” sophomore Mikaela Manzano said.
Café Diablo has plans to publicize more in the future and to switch up the menu. “This year, if we can get people to like hot lemonade, we’re planning to serve that in the morning, too,” Phelps said.
