Visitor Center and Cafe to close Aug. 20
Due to the construction of the new Visitor Center at Ford House, the current Visitor Center, including Cotswold Cafe, will close on Aug. 20, 2017.
While the new state-of-the-art Visitor Center is under construction, we will have a temporary welcoming space for guests inside the historic Garage in the Gate Lodge. Tour tickets will be sold there, and it will also house the Museum Store in the interim. Temporary parking lots have been constructed nearby.
Our Cotswold Cafe chef and servers have so appreciated your patronage over the years, and hope you will visit for lunch before we take a break! A new restaurant will open in 2020 in our new Visitor Center, and the new location will feature a gorgeous view of Lake St. Clair and more seating options. Cotswold Cafe has prided itself on providing a refreshing atmosphere to enjoy fresh entrees, sandwiches, soups, salads, daily specials and delectable desserts. We expect the new restaurant to bring you a wonderful atmosphere when we open the new Visitor Center! Through August 20, 2017, Cotswold Cafe hours are: 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. To make lunch reservations, please call 313-XXX-XXXX. (Edit: This phone number was removed as the Cafe is no longer open.)
