Do I have to go through my life eating poor quality food? No! That is why we are here!
How far will you deliver? Currently, we only operate in western Washington, and are limited to the Puget Sound Area. Preferably the greater Seattle area, but areas like Falls City, Mt Vernon, Enumclaw, and the Olympic Peninsula can be feasible. Please call to find out.
How many (or few) people will you feed? Between 4 and 25 people for a sit-down meal, and up to 100 for a buffet.
How much is this going to cost me? Prices vary greatly depending on several factors. Do you want just appetizers, desserts, or a full dinner? Do you just want food, or do you want service to accompany? Do you want a buffet, or an individually plated sit-down meal? Anywhere between $10/person for simple items, and up to $100/person for complex meals. Call to inquire.
How do we compare to other caterers? Our food is custom-made by hand for your event using only fresh, top-quality ingredients. Many other caterers serve already prepared food that they purchase in bulk. There are certainly caterers available that charge less. You can also find caterers that charge more, due to a higher profit margin. But nobody offers better quality food for less money.
Will you provide rental items? We are full-service caterer and provide all items needed to make your event a success.
Do I have to get a meal? Can I just get a cake or single entree? We make plenty of cakes for Weddings, Birthdays, Anniversaries, and more, without catering the meal. We can do individual food & dessert items, depending on availability. Please call to inquire.
Can you accommodate special dietary requirements? Yes. We can do Kosher, Parve, Halaal, Vegetarian, Vegan, and exclusions for allergies & personal preference. Please let us know in advance. If you need us to identify foods that contain nuts, wheat, spice, etc., we can, but again, please let us know in advance. (Kosher & Halaal are both style-only. Our kitchen has not been Kosher or Halaal certified)
How do I reserve a date? Give us a call. A non-refundable deposit of $150 guarantees the date of your event. This fee will be applied as a payment towards the cost of your event. Payment of 1/2 of the total cost is due 14 days before the event. The balance is due at the end of your event. The non-refundable deposit is necessary due to the fact that we turn away other business to reserve the date for you.
How far in advance do I need to reserve a date? First come first served. The deposit is the only way to reserve a date. Some customers reserve as far as 1 1/2 years in advance, others have called a week prior. Availability varies, especially depending on the season. Call now to inquire.
