Don’t worry — you’ll still be able to order your favorite alcoholic beverages, whether it be a White Claw, IPA, or margarita.The White Claw slushie first started appearing on TikTok in April.

For breakfast, travelers can now opt for an egg sandwich on a bialy or some bacon and cheese egg bites made popular by Starbucks.

And for a light lunch or dinner, you can pick between two new vegan options: an Asian inspired noodle bowl or corn tamale.

If you prefer a heavier meal, there’s always the smoked turkey and havarti sandwich or a cheese stromboli.

Looking for a light snack? Settle on the crudities, cheese and cracker board, or beef jerky.

And luckily for travelers’ wallets, unlike most restaurants, cafes, or grocery stores, Amtrak’s menu prices aren’t increasing.

Instead, meals will now be cheaper. The cost for a sandwich and salad on Amtrak’s Acela and Northeast Regional trains will be slashed between $0.50 to $1.50.

For most other food items, the price will remain the same.
