Our cafeteria serves breakfast, lunch and dinner every day and is open to our patients, families and visitors. Snacks, beverages, sandwiches, salads and desserts are available throughout the day at reasonable prices. We have a set menu every day with additional items cooked to order. Our cafeteria is cash only; an ATM is available at the Boyer Pavilion located next door at Temple University Hospital. In addition, vending machines are available in the cafeteria with a variety of beverages and light snack options.

To have a meal with your child, you may purchase your meal in the cafeteria and bring it to your child’s room. If your child is able, you may bring your child with you to the cafeteria. Please let the nursing staff know if you are interested in taking your child to the cafeteria.

Please make us aware of any food allergies or sensitivities that you, a family member or guest have so we can safely serve you.
