• About Capstones

    Capstones is Lambton College’s campus restaurant, and it is an applied learning environment utilized by the Culinary Management programs. Capstones allows students to gain knowledge and experience in the food industry as the restaurant morphs between three separate settings, showcasing their skills throughout the year.

    Capstones can be adapted to create multiple service delivery situations where the students develop practical skills and real-world training required to becoming a successful chef or food-service manager. Capstones strives to provide gourmet food options at an affordable price. The public is encouraged to be a part of our student's experiential learning process by visiting Capstones and enjoying the professional service and culinary magic created by our students.

    Capstones utilizes flexible food settings, throughout the three educational terms showcasing that good food can come from a variety of food service models: Café, Bistro and Fine Dining. Our students showcase their most recent skills by offering unique menus and experiences, depending on the time of year you visit.
