Meals at the Observatory

Food is always an important topic and here we have good and bad news. The good news is that you may have any food that you would like while you are at the LBT site. The bad news is that you must buy it before you come up to the site and prepare (and clean up!) the food yourself. The observatory provides basic facilities, including refrigerators, stoves, microwaves, and a coffee maker. Pots, pans, plates, and utensils are also available for use. The observatory also provides coffee and sugar. If you are not into cooking, the frozen breakfasts, lunches, and dinners have improved over the years and this, plus your drinks and snacks, would make your buying quick and easy. We also have an outdoor propane grill but I warn you that on cold nights the grill can be miserable to deal with.

All food you bring must be labeled and stored in the proper location and removed when you leave the observatory.
