Best to pack some sandwiches and apples and fresh fruit and drinks on your Amtrak ride. The prices of the food and drink in the Cafe car are Highway robbery, only over the rails so I guess yoy could say they are train robbery prices.

I once paid Amtrak's high prices for a sandwich and snapple on my train ride from Oakland to Bakersfield and I vowed never again.

I recently rode Amtrak from New Orleans to Lafayette and I enjoyed some fruit cups and an apple on my ride. I was very hungry and would have very much have enjoyed getting a sandwich and a drink from the cafe car, but I didn't want to let them rip me off.
