The cafeteria complements the offer of the canteen with a variety of snacks, small snacks, coffee specialties and a large selection of beverages.

You can get a pot of coffee for only 0.99 € or a delicious latte macchiato for 1.25 €. With "specials", as for example "sweet and hot for a small price", it gets even cheaper. For only 1,50 € you get a pot of coffee or cappuccino including a muffin.

In summer a place on or under the awning is very popular. Directly in front of the cafeteria the whole area invites you to stay. Here you can talk, learn or flirt with each other. And if you want to have a barbecue in the evening, you can borrow the utensils for it, provided you announce this wish in advance (contact: website of the Studentenwerk Freiberg).
