Delicious, Fresh and Healthy Food View Menu
Pacific Gardens prides itself on the quality of its dining experience. It is just like going to a fine restaurant. We use the freshest, high-quality ingredients. We often receive compliments from both residents and guests on how delicious our healthy chef-prepared meals are. We serve three meals a day, and like any fine restaurant, there’s always a daily special as well as seventeen alternative options. The menu reflects available seasonal fruits and vegetables. Food is seasoned using herbs and spices. We have a courtyard garden that our chefs use for the freshest herbs possible. The menu is planned and created a week in advance. The daily menu always has a meat and vegetarian selection. Two soups are made daily from scratch. Heart healthy choices are indicated on the menu. Healthy snacks, coffee, tea and water are available all day.
