Creating a warm inviting bistro brings in staff and guests.

A visual and culinary focal point of Bryden Bistro is the brick oven. Before the renovation, cheese pizza was the only option; the new options include pepperoni, Hawaiian (ham and pineapple) and spinach and artichoke. The chicken and bacon ranch pizza is very popular, says Baker.

Not all retail options are available to patients, including items from the brick oven pizza. However, patients can order pizzas from room service that are appropriate for their dietary needs, such as ones made with whole wheat dough and low-fat cheese.
