New pizza, sandwich eateries open in Arntzen Hall

Two new eateries, Engrained and Topio's, opened in Western Washington University's Arntzen Atrium on Monday, Oct. 3.

Engrained, according to the University Dining Services website, is a fast-casual café designed to be an educational food experience surrounding sustainability with a focus on what is made, the ingredients used and how they are handled. Engrained focuses on healthier eating with a commitment to locally grown food and environmentally friendly practices.

Topio's features Old World-style pizzas with old school ingredients such as real mozzarella and provolone, crushed tomatoes in the sauce and hand worked dough.

More information on these eateries and the other restaurants and eating options on campus is available on the University Dining Services website.
