Coffee Closet at Ruane's Den

Ruanes Den

This café, located in Harkness House, is a favorite spot to study, meet with friends or just grab a latte. Built with a generous gift from the Ruane family, it's a cozy, 1,500-square-foot coffee shop complete with comfy couches, wireless Internet and two large-screen televisions. The café serves baked goods, coffee, tea, cappuccinos, hot chocolate and their famous Nutella latte. While primarily designed as a student space, the café is also open to faculty, staff and campus visitors.

The Coffee Closet is only open during the academic year, beginning in August, and is closed during breaks.
