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 put forth a variety of dining options with menus developed in concert with resident preferences and 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 are 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 Dining Room is open every day of week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our goal at Abernethy Laurels is to offer you a delightful dining experience that is both tasty and good for you!
