Changes are on the menu for the Shands at UF cafeteria and other food service areas

Shands at UF’s Food and Nutrition Services team is renovating the Shands at UF north campus retail food court, the 1329 Building cafeteria, and the Shands Vista and Shands Rehab Hospital cafeteria.

Plans for the Shands at UF cafeteria include a revamped dining area; high-speed, credit-card-capable cash registers; a sushi station, where orders will be rolled fresh; an Austin Grill Tex Mex station; and an Italian station with a wood-burning oven. The cafeteria also will feature traditional hot entrees and comfort foods, with value pricing specials each day. The four-phase project is scheduled to be complete in December.

The 1329 Building cafeteria also is undergoing a retail rejuvenation that will feature a “chef’s case” concept as well as a deli case with made-to-order sandwiches. These changes are expected to be complete in January.

Shands Vista and Shands Rehab Hospital cafeteria diners will see some renovations as well to improve dining options for staff, patients and visitors. These renovations also will be complete in December.
