Current Food Service Aboard Pacific Surfliner?

Apparently you can get food at the Surfliner’s Market Cafe, but some items are unavailable during Covid. I’m guessing all-important coffee and tea are among these items? And that they’re not provided in Business Class either, removing a key reason to upgrade?

What is the current state of catering on these trains? Thanks.

In the Surfliner cafe car, many of the fresh food items (salads, fruit cups, some sandwiches) are gone, but otherwise most of the menu items have been around, like your microwave pizza and hamburgers. Local microbrews are still available. Sadly, the jalepeno cheeseburger dropped off the national menu a few months ago.

I don't travel business class on this route, so I can't speak to that.

Thanks, and coffee/tea availability?

Thanks for asking, I was actually curious, since I was eyeing a trip to San Diego in the near future. I have a $77 voucher from last year and can't think of any way to spend it besides treating myself to business class.
