VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System
Patriot Café is now Open!
Veteran Canteen Services' newest PatriotCafe is now open at the VA West Los Angeles Medical Center. VCS and VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System leadership hosted a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on June 28 in celebration of the Grand Opening.
"The new PatriotCafe offers Veterans a fresh, modern and comfortable dining experience," said Associate Director for Operations Jennifer Worley. "Our engineering department and VCS partners worked extremely hard to make this project a huge success and I know our Veterans and their families will enjoy their newest dining option."
Veterans, staff and visitors can enjoy a variety of food selections including sushi, handcrafted sandwiches, a chicken station as well as fan favorite meals like hamburgers and French fries. The renovation also includes updated light fixtures, wood laminate flooring, oversized murals, and new table and chair furnishings.
Veteran's PatriotCafe is located at 11301 Wilshire Blvd., first floor, Building 500, L.A., CA 90073. Patrons can enter through the café's exterior door or room 1460, across from the PM&R offices. The café is open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday.
PatriotCafe makeover is the first of a two-part renovation project for the VAGLAHS Canteen Services area. The second phase, which began June 28, focuses on the PatriotBrew concession stand area. Once completed, the PatriotBrew's new space will serve guest from two registers offering Starbucks coffee, expresso beverages, pastries, muffins and light snacks. PatriotCafe is scheduled to open in Oct 2019.
