Experience dining like never before.

We’ve been busy in the kitchen. Creating and maintaining the finest dining experience you’ll find at any Austin retirement community is a front-burner priority for Westminster. Every detail matters. We put pride and imagination into creating bold recipes and varied menus, along with expert preparation and presentation to bring you highly nutritious, spectacular selections every day and evening.

We start with the finest food products, including fresh meats and produce. Every item on the menu is made from scratch, and menus change each week. We welcome resident recommendations as well. Our staff dietitian recommends best nutrition practices. We offer healthy choices to accommodate varying dining requirements, such as gluten-free options. We have more than 30 sugar-free dessert options. Our pastry chef is sure to delight your pallet with a variety of baked goods straight from our kitchen.

We are proud and honored to say that Westminster’s Food and Beverage Department has a great reputation with Residents, families and guests of the community.
