Campus Community Celebrates Grand Opening of Falk Café on 2
The Falk Café on 2 celebrated its grand opening on Wednesday, Feb. 15. Students, faculty and staff from all across campus attended a lunchtime cake cutting with Falk College Dean Diane Lyden Murphy.
In addition to cake, guests enjoyed complimentary coffee and tea throughout the afternoon, courtesy of Falk College, as well as opportunities to win a variety of gift baskets. Dean Murphy opened the cake cutting with a few words about the new café.
“It is perky, bright and high tech. We have a new grill and plenty of healthy food options for everyone, including kale,” Dean Murphy says.
Syracuse University Food Services’ newest café, the Falk Café on 2, is located across from the main Student Lounge on the second floor of the Falk Complex. The hours of operation are 8 a.m. – 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. It serves make-your-own salads and wraps; the Café also has a grill for sandwiches and hamburgers and many other items.

Freshmen Connor Monzo, Jimmy Camp and Austin Towns find that the Falk Café on 2 is an easy place to get their lunch because it is centrally located. When asked what their favorite food was, they all rated the chicken tenders high. Other favorites included the Buffalo chicken wrap and grilled cheese.
Dean Murphy stressed that she wants the café to continue to be student friendly and continue to improve with customer suggestions.
With the opening of the Falk Complex in 2015, it marked the first time in the college’s history—which dates back to 1917 when the School of Home Economics began as a course in the College of Agriculture and the first nutrition course was taught—that Falk College’s academic disciplines and administrative offices were housed in a central location. In 2011, Syracuse University alumni David B. and Rhonda S. Falk committed a gift that renamed Falk College and supported the move to the new Falk Complex.
