A la carte: Mary Jane's Cafe

MARY JANE’S CAFE, on the main floor of Brookens Library at the University of Illinois Springfield, has reopened.

The coffee shop had been run by an independent vendor who left in December. Now it’s managed by the university’s food-service system.

Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Friday.

Besides hot and cold coffee drinks, there are teas, sodas and fruit smoothies. Foods include soups, salads and pastries, such as muffins, bagels, cinnamon rolls and cheesecake.

Mary Jane’s is named after Mary Jane MacDonald, the first librarian hired at the school then called Sangamon State University.

The cafe was featured in a April 24, 2010, article in the State Journal-Register.
