When you first think of retirement communities in Pennsylvania, you likely don’t think of food. That’s just one of the services that make us different.
There’s food for the soul and there’s food for the body. As one of the best retirement communities in Pennsylvania, we bring you both with beautiful surroundings and quality cuisine that our residents rave about—unlike a nursing home or an assisted living facility in Allentown. Our dining rooms offer gourmet selections served in elegant settings, every day. Treat your family and friends to a casual meal in our Bistro or wow them in the private dining room for a special occasion.
Here, we provide residents with a variety of healthy, freshly prepared meals served restaurant-style. Our recipes incorporate fresh ingredients and locally grown produce as well as regional flavors and resident favorites. The menu selection allows residents to choose items based upon their dietary needs and personal preferences.
At each meal residents can choose from several featured entrees as well as an alternate choice of baked seafood, breast of chicken or a vegetarian selection at dinner. For an added splurge, residents can order from our Elegant Entrees menu any night of the week to treat themselves to lobster tail, filet mignon, lamb chops or scallops.
A salad bar of fresh vegetables, fruits and salads is always available. Fresh bread and rolls are baked each day by in-house bakers with an impressive array of delicious desserts prepared daily.
The Bistro is available for residents to enjoy at their leisure. Our dining team prepares hearty soups, fresh salads, burgers, build-your-own sandwiches, grilled specialties and delicious sides, even breakfast entrees served any time. The Bistro is ideal for treating guests to lunch, catching up with neighbors or enjoying a quiet moment with a light meal and a good book.
Residents and their friends and family enjoy occasional Sunday brunches often featuring omelet, waffle or carving stations. Fresh fruit, cookies, juices, coffee and tea are available for you and your guests throughout the day and evening.
You may even see our culinary team out in the community giving a cooking demonstration at places like the Lehigh Valley Active Life center. They’ll show how to prepare simple, yet delicious meals for one and of course offer samples to give a little taste of Country Meadows.
“For my mother’s 92nd birthday, our family all gathered in the Country Kitchen to celebrate and enjoyed the Elegant Entrees menu. The room was all prepared for us, and the staff was wonderful. It was such an enjoyable experience not only for our mother, but for our entire family. We felt we were at a restaurant without leaving the building.”
~ Daughter of a Resident
The meal is only part of the experience. In addition to dining with their friends at their table, our residents enjoy socializing at happy hour with their neighbors. And, our dining team hosts themed dining events throughout the year designed by resident direction.
But don’t take our word for it—come dine with us. Contact us any day of the week to schedule a time for you and your friends or family to join us for a meal in our dining room or neighborhood-style Bistro plus a personalized visit. And bring your appetite.
