How does dining work?

Each morning we provide a complimentary Fresh Start Breakfast to our residents. Served continental style, it’s the perfect way to start your day and catch up with your neighbors.

Since schedules and appetites can change by the day, we provide flexibility in your dining service. Each month, you’ll receive Bistro Bucks, which are credits that can be used in The Walnut Café for grab-and-go items, such as soups, sandwiches and salads, or at our sit-down, Chef-prepared dinners.

The Walnut Café is open to the public and we encourage you to invite your friends and family to join you. Please note that Bistro Bucks will only apply to resident meals.
