Food at Brookhaven Lab

There is no evening or weekend food service available on-site. Food Options

Staff and visitors on site have access to food for purchase—some freshly prepared, some frozen—24 hours a day, seven days a week at BNL's micro-market. The micro-market is located in the Research Support Building (www.bnl.gov/guv/map.asp) (Bldg. 400). There, anyone on site can purchase beverages and food, including sandwiches, salads, soups, and frozen and prepackaged meals around the clock. After making selections, patrons pay at the self-checkout kiosk, which accepts cash as well as debit and credit cards.

Vending machines (including sandwiches, salads, beverages, coffee, ice cream, and microwaveable foods, as well as a selection of toiletries) are also located in the Post Office (www.bnl.gov/maps/point.php?Lat=40.86776&Lng=-72.88106) (Bldg. 179). A small eating area and microwave oven are also provided at both of these locations.

Overnight guests can prepare these items in the dorms and apartments, where they have access to full kitchens.

For guests arriving on-site when the cafeteria and Starbucks Café aren't open, the Housing Office and the Guest, User, Visitor Center also provide a list of restaurants in the local area that will deliver on-site without charging extra fees.

Guests planning to be on-site without vehicles for more than a day or two can also take advantage of the Lab's shopping shuttle service, which runs on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings, dropping off and picking up at Southport Plaza Shopping Center in Shirley. There, they can buy groceries at the Stop & Shop supermarket, and other necessities at Kohl's department store and more than 30 other stores.

Detailed information about the cafeteria, micro-market, vending machines and other on-site services can be found in the online guide (www.bnl.gov/staffservices/foodservices.php) to Brookhaven National Laboratory.
