Café Tempo announced that students can get a free soda by showing their valid JCCC student ID. Great idea because the only time I’ve ever been to Café Tempo is to redeem a free soda coupon they gave out last fall.
If the kinder, gentler Café Tempo’s prices can compete with the other campus venues like the food court, (Dining) Down Under, or Java Jazz, then they’ll get my business and probably that of other students as well.

To encourage students to patronize Café Tempo, through October 1, 2010, students who show their student ID will receive a free beverage of any kind (coffee, soft drink, iced tea, etc.).
Café Tempo at Johnson County Community College is changing with the times and keeping pace with the hurried life of students. Originally billed as an “upscale” eating establishment, the café catered to patrons of the Nerman Museum of Contemporary of Art, business people in the Regnier Center and college employees with an hour for a leisurely lunch.
Problem was students were in a rush and usually strapped for cash. So Café Tempo is lowering its prices and speeding up service while keeping the same great ambience and a modified menu of panini, tuna, club, brie and ham, and grilled cheese sandwiches; sunflower, cobb, mango, Tuscan and Asian chicken salads; soups; breakfast dishes; pastries and drinks. After placing their orders, café-goers will receive a pager to notify them when their order is ready. Students as well as other guests will be able to order and eat within 30 minutes.
The tasteful contemporary art-filled café shares space between the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art and Regnier Center – 55 seats in the museum and 55 seats in the two-story glass atrium connecting the buildings.
Café hours are Tuesday-Friday, 7 a.m.-10 a.m. breakfast, 10:30 a.m.-2 p.m. lunch, and 7 a.m.-3 p.m. coffee, pastries, desserts. The café will no longer be open Saturday. For more information, call Cafe Tempo, 913-469-8500, ext. 4993.
