University Cafe Is now Bopjib

No coffee, just full-service authentic Korean

by Sabine Bickford

From the February, 2019 issue

The University Cafe on Church St. is now going by Bopjib. Owner Cassandra Knisely took over nine months ago. She says she's kept the restaurant and menu nearly identical, but the old name just wasn't working for her. "I really didn't like 'University Cafe,'" she says. "People would come in and ask for coffee ... [or] people would think it was fast food!"

Knisely worried that they were missing out on those looking for authentic Korean meals in a full-service environment. She hopes the new name, which translates roughly to "rice house," will end the mix-ups.

Bopjib, 621 Church. 662-7162. Mon.-Fri. 11 a.m.-9 p.m., Sat. noon-8:30 p.m. Closed Sun.     (end of article)
