The RGH Cafe offers a blend of local families' recipes for home-cooked foods and diets prescribed by the physician. Our primary purpose is to provide a well-balanced, nutritious diet for each patient. Menus are planned in accordance with the approved diet manual of the hospital. The RGH Cafe provides meals for patients three times a day, and has healthy snacks available at any time. Providing a nourishing, well-balanced, properly controlled diet is our highest priority. We will make every attempt possible to consider patients' likes and dislikes. If you are having food brought in, please check with the charge nurse to make sure it fits within the diet your physician ordered.

The RGH Cafe strives to promote patient health and well-being by providing quality nutrition and education. A Dietician can provide consultations or instructions on diets or nutritional needs (i.e. diabetic, gluten-free, low-fat, low-sodium or low-cholesterol diets) and is also available for outpatient education by calling 575.356.6652. (A physician referral may be required.)

The public is welcome at the RGH Cafe, which is open daily. Menus are posted monthly and generally follow the regular patient menus with some variations. Patrons may choose from an a la carte menu seven days a week. There are hot and cold items for lunch and dinner, and a salad bar on Monday and Wednesday. While meals are only served during our meal times, cold food, such as sandwiches, desserts, ice cream, yogurts, and salads are available throughout hours of operation.
