“Recommended by a good friend and in the area…ideal. I searched the IG page and website and saw preselected brunch packages…sold! And she delivered. The food was good. Service was great. Cups never empty. All around appreciated the turn around on information, the level of communication and the delivery of service. I would certainly acquire catering and recommend her to friends and family."
