In Blanchard’s southwest corner, the long counter with the Uncommon Grounds logo is gone. The glass pastry case which previously contained cookies and cakes has disappeared, and the ice cream window is there no more. Instead, two brown sofas and a thin brown rug fill the floor space against the southern wall. The trash bins and the café seating area are gone, and in their place are cushy modern armchairs for student lounging.
