The health, safety and well-being of the Lincoln Land Community College community are our highest priorities. In light of the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Bistro Verde is currently closed to the public. Keep an eye out on the LLCC Culinary Arts and Hospitality Program Facebook page for fall updates!
In the LLCC Culinary Arts program, part of a student’s learning experience is to run an actual working café that is open to the public. Hospitality degree-seeking students manage the dining room, while culinary arts students prepare all the orders. Baking and pastry students provide breads and desserts.
During the spring semester, we offer a full-service dining experience with meals prepared and served by LLCC culinary and hospitality students. Reservations are strongly encouraged.
Dine with us to become part of a student’s education while enjoying a from-scratch lunch. Bistro Verde is located right inside the Workforce Careers Center building on LLCC’s main campus at 5250 Shepherd Road in Springfield.
Visit the Culinary Institute page to learn about dinners hosted in Bistro Verde through LLCC Community Education as well as non-credit cooking and baking classes.
