Pinnacle to Become Something Called Uni Cafe

Written by

It hasn’t always been easy for Pinnacle.

Today, Pinnacle’s legacy begins a new chapter: not really being Pinnacle. Shane Ferro checked in with some Pinnacle employees who told him that construction is starting this week and will take place this week and continue over winter break. The Space Formerly Known As Pinnacle is now under new management, and something called Uni Cafe will open next week.

  5. saddest day  

    in my 4 yr columbia career......
    y even bother sticking around haha

  6. So sad  

    They came first for Floridita, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a drunkard.

    Then they came for JJ's Place, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a freshman.

    Then they came for Pinnacle, and by that time no one was left to speak up.


    this is a tragic day for the columbia community.

    Despite all the late night memories in Pinnacle, THANK GOD THIS PLACE IS CLOSING. so disguisting

  9. Doesn't it seem...  

    like these guys will get pwned by Starbucks

  10. what...  

    Why are so many people sad that Pinnacle is closing? It was the dirtiest, sketchiest, most disgusting place ever.

    The question that is still unknown, though...

    Will there still be $2.25 soft serve?????

  12. a little clueless

    The only two things that I ever had at Pinnacle were tea with milk and sugar and their soup. So I don't know so much about it being disgusting or not. That said, Pinnacle was the only place within Columbia's immediate vicinity on Broadway that served tea deli-style and for less than two dollars. So .. I mourn. Here's to hoping that this Uni Cafe will still have cheap, comforting tea...

      you had their soup... sooooo you should be well versed in the disgustingnes of Pinnacle. Unless you had the soup INSTANTLY after it was put out, you probably had a nice filmy crust right on top of it. bleh.

    I wish i could tell the people at pinnacle just... i guess just how hard it is to change who you are, and even more than that, to change how people perceive you.

    Pinnacle was horrid, I don't know why you guys are upset.

  21. Bagels  

    It's all about the bagels. I don't care who owns it, but I need a place in pinnacle's location that serves bagels.
    For all this talk of sketchiness and vermin, I feel like that mainly affected their pizza, which, granted, was disgusting. But their bagels never failed me, and I don't know how I'll live without my morning pinnacle bagel, timed perfectly so that I've finished it by the time I arrive at my class in Knox.
    And I can't wait until the end of winter break to get my bagels.
    Oh pinnacle, RIP. you were the pinnacle of happiness for my morning.
