Library signs lease with Cafe Brasil for Global Village Cafe

The UC Santa Cruz Library has signed a five-year lease with Cafe Brasil to manage the Global Village Cafe.

The menu will be based on Cafe Brasil's "Amazon Juices" concept in Capitola, which includes juices, smoothies, acai bowls, hot sandwiches, salads, and rice bowls. Cafe Brasil will also serve Brazilian coffee and Kelly's French Bakery pastries.

In addition to purchasing new equipment for the GVC, Cafe Brasil is funding a counter reconfiguration project to add an additional cash register for express line and phone app purchases. Cafe Brasil anticipates opening sometime in December with a limited menu and expand to the full menu in January.

Cafe Brasil will advertise available jobs at the GVC through the UC Santa Cruz Career Center.
