Breakpoint Café Fully Open in Iribe Center

By Maryland Today Staff

The new Breakpoint Café, which quietly opened over the summer in the lobby of the Brendan Iribe Center for Computer Science and Engineering, is now offering a full menu.

Dining Services’ latest eatery on campus offers omelet burritos, breakfast and flatbread sandwiches, rice or sweet potato bowls, and fresh salads, all made to order. Customers pick from a variety of proteins and cheeses and finish off their dish with items from the cold bar—much like in a fast-casual restaurant. Those in a morning rush can choose from two breakfast sandwich express options daily.

Breakpoint Café was named by computer science major Ashwath Krishnan ’21 in a contest sponsored by the College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences; it references a term for pausing computer code while debugging.

The café is open in the building’s atrium 7:30 a.m.–4 p.m. weekdays, switching from breakfast to lunch at 10:30.
