Why is the galley the most popular area? Because that is where the food, snacks, and refreshments are stored and prepared. Get the day started with a fresh brewed pot of coffee. Need a quick stack? Heat something up in the microwave. Looking for something with more substance? Cook something on the stove top or in the oven. Need to rehydrate after a long hot day, poor a cold drink from the refrigerator. A proper galley contains all the tools necessary for meal prep, storage, and has your unique style.
