Dining at Mariandale

The Center at Mariandale’s professionally-trained chefs prepare buffet-style meals for guests on retreat, from world cuisine to traditional foods. Many of the vegetables we serve are grown here at center’s kitchen gardens. Fruits, meat, and other foods are often sourced locally, from the Hudson Valley. Coffee, tea, and cocoa are available all day in the dining room.

The center’s meals provide a balance of nutritional foods that are carefully and mindfully prepared and selected. We regret that special menus for individuals cannot be created, though we can offer vegetarian options with 14 days’ advance notice.

Those who come for retreats with severe food limitations, or who require vegan or gluten-free meals, may supplement our offerings with their own special items. A guest refrigerator and microwave are providedmailto:mariandale@ophope.org on the Ground Floor.
