Updated: ‘Grate Chee’ To Replace Diversions In The HUB

It’s official — Diversions in the HUB food court will be replaced by a new grilled cheese and tomato soup restaurant, Grate Chee.

If you’ve never noticed Diversions, you’re probably the reason it’s closing. The gelato shop and bakery opened with the new HUB food court in time for fall 2014 classes.

Your grilled cheese Thursdays just got so much better. Follow along for more details as the story develops.

Updated April 18 – Diversions is closing because “Crepes, gelato, and desserts did not sell well over lunch,” said HUB Dining Associate Director Vince Raco. “Customers have asked us for more comfort food options, and grilled cheese and tomato soup are often mentioned.”

Because they couldn’t expand the space, HUB Dining needed an alternative that would complement the other lunch options in the food court but still fit into the Diversions space. Grate Chee is a Penn State Foodservice concept, not a chain restaurant. This likens it more to Blue Burrito than to the other HUB options like Sbarro or McAlister’s, which have locations across the country.

Grate Chee will be open for the fall semester, although the menu has not been finalized. “We will be using bread from the Penn State Bakery, a variety of cheeses, and at least two soup options, Cream of Tomato and possibly a Tomato Basil Raviolini,” Raco said. Grate Chee will also have a daily feature specialty sandwich available.
