The Lafayette Grande Banquet Facility is located in Downtown Pontiac, Michigan in a historical landmark. Built in 1923 as the Masonic Temple Lodge No. 21, Traveling Chef Catering bought this neglected building from the City of Pontiac in 1997. The intricate craftsmanship of fine details has been restored to the original grandeur. Truly, making the Lafayette Grande Banquet Facility a unique experience and unlike any other venue! Certainly a hidden gem in Oakland County, Michigan!

Lafayette Grande's Traveling Chef Catering provided dinner service for our wedding at The Crofoot Ballroom. The team from Traveling Chef as great and the food was amazing. They also provided linens and chair covers for us and everything went very smoothly. Our guests are still commenting on how great the food was. We got quotes from many other caterers that were double or triple the price we got from Traveling Chef. We attending a menu tasting and knew that their food was just what we wanted.

Lafayette Grande went above and beyond for our wedding and we couldn't be more pleased with how everything turned out on our big day. First of all, the venue is quite unique and beautiful-it's an art deco theatre that's unlike anything else in Michigan and they are constantly doing renovations to improve the decoration and structural integrity of the building. The food was good and as a bonus, they let us bring in some appetizers from a restaurant with whom they have worked with before, and our own desserts and cake. They were so easy-going, polite, and accommodating with all of our requests.
We chose Lafayette Grande because it was a beautiful venue, the food was consistently good, and we could have our ceremony and reception all in one place. They really enjoy what they do and you can tell because all of our interactions were so productive and pleasant. They geek out on making a wedding special and unique-so if you want to think outside of the box, this is the place for you! We had a concert for our ceremony and a dessert room and they both turned out better than we envisioned. Our guests raved about the beauty of the venue, the fact that everything was in one place, the food, and how smoothly everything went. Overall, it was a very positive experience for us!

Great off-site caterer!
We were in the market for an off-site caterer at a venue which did not have a full kitchen, only a small prep kitchen. After a caterer that we had been talking to for months backed out on us, we were nervous about finding someone else who could cater at our venue without a full kitchen. The Lafayette Grande's Traveling Chef Catering exceeded all of our expectations! They assured us that they could keep our food warm until dinner, as they were, in fact, the first to ever cater at our venue. We loved that they offer a monthly taste test, where we could try many different dishes and figured out what we liked and didn't like. Each month featured different dishes, so by the time we had to make our selections, we had tried most of their menu! They have an excellent menu- we received so many compliments on our food! They also set up a great food display with an ice sculpture for our cocktail hour. We also used Lafayette Grande's services for our bar. They also offer a late-night snack, which we were initially undecided about, but happy we finally went with it. People loved it! From start to finish, Lauren, Ryan, and everyone at Lafayette was helpful in answering our questions, reassuring us, and giving us the best wedding reception!
