Café de Novo to replace Law Refectory Café

The change in vendors is due to the university's refusal to renew the Refectory Café's contract.

DURHAM, N.C.—Café de Novo has been announced as the replacement vendor for the space that will be left vacant by the soon-to-depart Law Refectory Café.What do you think?

The new café will be operated by Sam Clowney and Chris Holloway, the partnership behind McClendon Tower's Pitchfork Provisions and Bella Union as well as French Family Science Center's La Dolce Vita. Holloway also ran the kitchen of Faculty Commons until it closed as part of the West Union renovations. The change in vendors comes after the University declined to renew the Refectory Café's contract—a move met with some outcry from the community.6
