Cafeterias and Dining

Eating well during your hospital stay will contribute to a quicker and better recovery. Carson Tahoe's Five Star patient menu is served daily to our patients.  The restaurant style menu is geared towards increasing food variety and to bolster patient satisfaction. We also provide a large selection of comfort foods to help enhance our patient's stay.

To ensure that patients clearly understand how to order their menu, a Diet Host/Hostess visits patients to explain the menu system, collect food preferences, and assist with menu selection. Menus requiring dietary restrictions related to your condition are carefully monitored to ensure menu accuracy.  Accommodations for special requests such as vegetarian and Kosher diets are provided.

Carson Tahoe offers several dining locations open to visitors and the general public. The Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center houses the full-service Sage Café, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, and now has a 24-hour Starbucks coffee stand in the main lobby. The Midtown Café is located at the Carson Tahoe Specialty Medical Center (formerly Carson-Tahoe Hospital) and is a great place to visit for breakfast or lunch.
