The Cafe Mediterranean’s Catering “Dream Team” to the Rescue!

There’s nothing more gratifying and exhausting than preparing a fabulous dinner party, a grand Sunday brunch, or any lavish celebration. For those who know what this means, the thought alone already evokes a feeling of near-to-sheer panic!

Whether it involves feeding a large group of guests, or just a handful of friends, much though and creativity goes to planning and then executing a successful event, while satisfying a range of picky palettes, creating the perfect atmosphere and to meeting one’s own stringent expectations. There is never enough time without a hitch, or worse, without personal sacrifice in order to put all the finishing touches. You don’t have to wait for a 9-1-1 moment – the Cafe Mediterranean’s catering “dream team” is just a call away!

The first thing to consider is the food – the cornerstone of any successful catering business! Cafe Med’s catering services started when, soon after they opened 18 years ago, people were coming in with their Pyrex dishes, asking them to make Moussaka for a dinner party, or Hummus, Falafel and practically everything on the menu. Gyros were a favorite request for mid-afternoon meetings. Eventually, we decided to go into catering for small groups. Today, a great part of the business is devoted to catering.

Next to consider is expertise. Cafe Med’s on-site full-service catering includes cocktails (Eastern and Western Mediterranean, Vegetarian/Light Dinner), lavish dinner menus (Eastern and Western Mediterranean, Vegetarian), fun “Make Your Own Gyros,” sumptuous desserts (per person or by-the-tray) such as the legendary Baklava, and of course, a wide range and fine selection of wines to pair with your menus of choice.

With every catering booking, you get an entire catering that is on-site from setting up to packing up, including professional serving and kitchen staff, a creative stylist to decorate from the entrance to the dining and party area. So whether it’s a dinner for two or 250, within the city or out-of-town, Cafe Med’s stalwart catering team will definitely deliver more than you expect, and with genuine and infectious smiles that add pleasure to their impeccable and delightful service!

The Mediterranean lifestyle is all about enjoying to the full through fresh, healthy meals shared among friends and family. At Cafe Med, one can pause to taste, smell and enjoy – a tradition inspired by Mediterranean culture. So the next time you plan a party or gathering, leave the dirty work to Cafe Med’s catering “dream team.” At the end of it all, what will be remembered by all is how your effervescent self-hosted yet another enchanted evening, and the best part is… you even get to comment on all the gorgeous photos, of the party of the year!
