Coffee Kiosk
The CHOC Coffee Kiosk (Starbucks) hours of operation: 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, located in the Holmes Tower outside of the cafeteria.

Lounges
Each floor has a parent lounge. This is a place for families to relax. Restrooms for parents and visitors are located in the lounge.

Patient Meals
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided at regular times and some snacks are available on each unit as well as on request. Meals are ordered by filling out our daily menu which is designed for different ages and dietary needs. It is available in English and Spanish. Please ask to speak with a dietician if you have special nutritional or cultural needs. Families may bring in food from home for their children, but must follow a strict food safety policy and must also check with the nurse. The food must be labeled with the patient’s name, dated to ensure freshness and will be discarded after 3 days.

Meals for Parents
Parent guest trays are available for a fee of $5.00 per meal. Parents may choose from our regular menu or cafeteria menu. This service is available only on the medical and surgical floors and oncology. Due to hospital regulations, we are not permitted to extend this service to parents in our PICU, CVICU and NICU. These parents are allowed to order a meal but it cannot be eaten in their child's room.
