Welcome to Hindu Temple Canteen!
The Temple Canteen:
With the grace and blessings of Sri Maha Vallabha Ganapati, the Temple canteen was started in 1993 – mainly to prepare “naivedyam” (food offering) to the deities in accordance with agama sastras. The authentic South Indian food at the canteen was a great appeal to devotees as well, who enjoyed the traditional flavor and taste of idli, dosa, pongal, upma, sambar, chutney, etc., Thanks to the encouragement of devotees, the canteen grew rapidly and moved in 1998 to the current, spacious location in the community center.
Temple Canteen is Open for Indoor Dining, Take-Out & Delivery (UberEats /DoorDash/GrubHub).
