Amtrak debuts new Café menus on Northeast Corridor and long-distance trains

Amtrak’s new Cafe items include a Smoked Turkey & Havarti Cheese Sandwich.

Amtrak has made travel on its Northeast Corridor and long-distance trains such as the Capitol Limited, Cardinal, and California Zephyr a little tastier by introducing new items to its Café menus including reduced prices for select items. In response to customer feedback, Amtrak now offers more high-quality and fresh items for its breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus — with a significant increase in vegan and hot food offerings.

“Making changes to our menu based on customer feedback reflects Amtrak’s commitment to enhancing their travel experience, as passengers know we are listening to their requests for improvement,” said Amtrak Vice President Operations & Customer Services Robert Jordan. “In this time of rising costs, we are proud to offer our customers high-quality items on our menu at reduced prices.”

Some of the new or reduced-price menu items customers will see onboard include:

  • Breakfast: Bialy Egg Sandwich, Bacon & Cheese Egg Bites, and Seasonal Fruit with Mango
  • Lunch & Dinner: Smoked Turkey & Havarti Sandwich, Vegan Asian Noodle Bowl, and Blue Corn Vegan Tamale
  • Snacks: Fresh Vegetable Crudites, Beef Jerky, and Pistachios
  • Beverages: Pomegranate Juice and new hot and iced coffee selections

Prices have remained the same for most of Amtrak’s food and beverages items; however, the sandwiches and salads on all Acela and Northeast Regional trains have been reduced between $.50 and $1.50. For more details and to browse the full menus, visit
