Located at the Great Lakes Campus, Lobdell's serves as a working laboratory for the Great Lakes Culinary Institute's culinary and baking students. Lobdell's is open to the public for lunches, dinners, cocktail hours, special events and morning coffee and sweets in the fall, spring and summer semesters. Every semester offers different events that are advertised in our e-newsletter, so sign up for email announcements here.
