Aladdin Reopens Pete’s Retreat at Northeastern Junior College “Offers Beloved Locally Brewed Memoria Coffee Beverages”

Aladdin Campus Dining is excited to reopen Pete’s Retreat, a trending café offering a variety of must-have favorite menu items including locally loved and Veteran-owned Memoria Roasters coffee beverages now served on the Northeastern Junior College campus in Sterling, Colorado!   “We’re thankful to our dining partner Aladdin for supporting local and veteran-owned businesses like Memoria, and to create a space where the community on and off campus can enjoy freshly brewed beverages and delicious food, “says Northeastern Junior College President Mike White.

A grand reopening celebration will be held on Thursday, January 18th at 7:30 a.m. with complimentary samples, gifts, and more!

Until the grand reopening, Memoria Roasters, a beloved brand in the Sterling community, could only be purchased by the bag.  “We couldn’t be more thrilled to be the first retail dining venue in Sterling to offer freshly brewed cups of hand-crafted Memoria Roasters coffee beverages, produced locally with zero preservatives and artificial flavorings!  Memoria Roasters is the perfect companion to Aladdin’s menu items, prepared fresh with local ingredients,” says Aladdin Campus Dining Food Service Director Staci Marx.

Students and the community off-campus can visit Pete’s Retreat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner where they will enjoy breakfast sandwiches and burritos, flatbread pizza, quesadillas, wings, and mac and cheese bites – along with a wide variety of Memoria Roasters hot, iced and frozen coffee beverages.  Dine-in or take-out is available, including Memoria Roasters bagged coffee. Students who are on the school’s meal plan can use their flex points towards Pete’s Retreats purchases.

New seating with a capacity of 50, Pete’s Retreat also offers the perfect ‘retreat’ experience for students to study, dine, and even socialize with various games including ping pong, foosball, or trying their luck on the pool table!  Several flat-screen TV monitors and a new sound system also allow gamers to connect their gaming stations.

Located in the Hays Student Center on campus and available to the public, Pete’s Retreat is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Our Barista Team Members, including Jodi Dutton, Sara Dutton, Anna Kauffman, and Robbie Lefevre, are happy to serve you!
