Historical café to reopen doors in the Main Building soon
The Loza café will welcome everyone starting 9 February – the first day of the spring semester.
The interior will stay the same, with low reliefs of Nikolay Lobachevsky and Yevgeny Zavoisky, two world-famous scientists and alumni of the Univesity. The first syllables of their surnames, Lo- and Za-, gave the establishment its name.
General Director of KFU’s Food and Retail Department Luiza Khakimova notes that the eatery has been closed since mid-2021, having been hard-hit by COVID lockdowns, “The name remains the same, but the front office staff and the cooks are all new. In the summer, we plan to refurbish the kitchen and to renovate the dining hall, including new chairs and tables. There will be no major changes, though, because the building a protected architectural heritage object.”
The menu is also set to change. Apart from traditional dishes, such as borscht, chicken noodles, mashed potatoes, and salads, Caucasian meals will also appear. The latter will be added per the students’ and the employees’ requests. The additions comprise chashushuli, chakokhbili, kharcho, khashlama, and much more.
The open hours will be 8 am to 5 pm, Monday to Friday.
