You dream it, we’ll create it!
Eating is more than just flavour and taste. It’s about visual appeal, choice, quality of service and the environment where it is consumed. Contract catering is also about value, efficiency and management. Delivering excellence consistently and providing a service that meets the demands and expectations of everyone who experiences it are challenging goals, but it is our specialty. Pricing may change according to number of guests attending & kitchen accessibility of venue. We are a full service caterer and can assist with rentals, floral arrangements & planning.
Hor D’oeuvres are great for any size event or party. Regardless of whether your event is indoors or outdoors, Hor D’oeuvres can be a great catering choice. We have an extensive Hor D’oeuvres menu to choose from, or we can create special items just for you. We have three main options for how to serve Hor D’oeuvres: passed by servers, buffet-style, or set-up in themed stations. When serving heavy Hor D’oeuvres we recommend either buffet-style or Hor D’oeuvres stations. Passed Hor D’oeuvres are a great addition to formal dinners, and traditional buffets.
- Cocktail parties
- Open houses
- Exhibit openings
- Cocktail hour during wedding receptions
Buffet-style catering also works great for any size event or party, regardless of whether it is located indoors or outdoors. Buffets offer a full-dinner catering option with less staffing needs than a plated and served dinner, but they have the flexibility of being as formal or informal as you wish. To increase the formality of a buffet dinner, we offer the option of adding a preset plated salad. Or for less formal events we can provide heavy Hor D’oeuvres buffet-style. We have three options for buffet-style events. We can simply drop-off the catered items, we can set-up the buffet for you, or we can provide a full-service buffet.
- Open house
- Dinner parties
- Corporate lunches & Dinners
Plated & Served
Plated dinners are ideal for smaller more intimate formal gatherings, however we can create an unforgettable plated meal for any size event. Plated dinners generally work best at inside venues that have a full kitchen onsite.

For corporate events we can provide any of the services above, and you can either pick up your order at our location or we can deliver it to you. We can handle any size corporate event. We also offer box lunches, which are great for working lunches, conferences, staff development days, and much more.
