Lemon Tree Restaurant

The Lemon Tree provides real world, science-based experiences to students in the Quantity Food Production class, a capstone course for dietetics and hospitality, management and tourism undergraduate students. During the semester, students rotate through a series of work stations, gaining hands-on experience as they learn the various roles involved in operating a restaurant.

The Lemon Tree is located on the second floor of Erikson Hall and serves lunch each Tuesday and Thursday at noon sharp. The Lemon Tree costs $14.00 and MUST be paid with credit card. NO CASH will be accepted. Check out the Spring 2022 Menu.
