"A daughter picks her mom up and takes her to the neighborhood café
to enjoy a wonderful visit complete with a freshly-baked
scone and aromatic chai tea."
You may be thinking this typical outing sounds like a scene right out of your local bakery- but think again! At Provena St. Anne Center, going out for breakfast, coffee, or lunch is as easy as walking down the hall. The café, which opened in February 2008, now serves the ministry seven days a week, during the day and evening, meeting the needs of patients, residents, family members, employees and the community. The cozy café with enticing scents and a light-hearted ambiance has emerged as a popular spot for patients, residents and their family members to socialize. Walk through our doors to become part of the experience!
Technology and shopping go hand in hand at the Internet Café and Gift Shop at Provena Heritage Village. A daily gathering place for residents, families and staff, it is the ideal spot for coffee, tea, soda and snacks.
Gift and convenience items are on display for sale and Internet ready computers are available for use anytime.
