The Bistro

The Bistro is Adventist Health Castle’s cafeteria, located in the hospital’s lower level and open to the public.

In keeping with the traditions of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, The Bistro emphasizes good health.

Several features distinguish The Bistro from the cafeterias in most hospitals:

  • Although some of our dishes are made with dairy products or eggs, no meat at all is served.
  • We emphasize fresh foods. At every meal, there is always a selection of cooked fresh vegetables, fresh fruit, and a salad bar.
  • We take pride in not using dishes that are pre-prepared. Nearly all of our entrées are made from scratch. As much as possible, we use individual ingredients, not pre-packaged combinations.
  • Although not all of our dishes are moderate in fat and sodium, we always offer something that is.
  • We always offer at least one entrée that is strictly vegan—containing no dairy products or eggs.

We know that not everyone is attuned to a healthful way of eating, and we do offer snacks and beverages in the cafeteria for everyone, but we encourage the public to come join us for a nutritious and economical alternative.
