The hustle and bustle of people from all walks of life. Long lines. Blue scrubs. White coats. Beepers. Hand sanitizer. Defibrillator stations positioned throughout the area.
It is no secret, to those who know the furrylittlegnome, that she loves hospital cafeterias! She visits the Eat Street Cafe at the Massachusetts General Hospital, in Boston, on a semi-regular basis. If she is not stopping there after a doctor’s appointment or operation, a friend of the gnome is gleefully accompanying her down the stairs to this dining facility after work or over the weekend.
Here, at the main dining hall at the MGH, there are choices galore! Whether you want a slice of pizza, chicken tenders, a grilled-cheese sandwich, something from the salad or soup bar, a turkey dinner – it is all available! The dessert station is well-stocked with ice cream, sundaes, brownies and cookies.
There is one down side. The café posts the calories to their entrees.
Although furrylittlegnome is partial to the MGH, she has to admit the best hospital cafeteria breakfast she has had belongs to The George Washington University Hospital in Washington, DC. Bright and spacious, any breakfast item imaginable is available here – not to mention a Starbucks!
