Dining & Nutrition

Our cottages, villas, and apartments are well equipped with modern kitchens, but one of the best aspects of life at Abernethy Laurels is that you don’t need to cook unless you choose to!

At Abernethy Laurels, we offer a variety of dining options with menus developed to accommodate resident preferences and which are overseen by a registered dietician. Our team of chefs come to us with extensive training at top-ranked culinary institutions.

Enjoy a deli sandwich along with your favorite cup of soup in our Bistro. Located in the Community Center, the Bistro is a spacious, well-lit dining venue that serves up an array of culinary delights in a casual atmosphere. If you’re looking for something a bit more intimate, the Laurel Woods Dining Room offers fireside dining in a cozy environment with seasonally changing menus. Laurels Woods is open every day of the week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s our pleasure at Abernethy Laurels to offer a delightful dining experience that’s both tasty and good for you!
