About

2022 Couples' Choice Awards Winner

After 25 years of catering within Central Virginia and over 1,200 events, Chef Shawn has decided to take a step back from his catering services. We have served and celebrated so many of life's milestones with our clients and have truly enjoyed each and every one of them.

Our team over the years has been phenomenal and played a large part in the rewards we have recieved. We would like to also give a special thank you to our Catering Sales Director, Sue Dickau, for all years of wonderful service for both Blue Ridge Cafe and her clients. She is truly extraordinary and a valued member of our team.

We will continue to offer on-site catering events in our newly-remodled banquet rooms in addtion to pick-up and delivery services. A new catering menu for these offering will be released soon.

As the chapter of our off-site catering services comes to an end, Chef Shawn and his team are excited for the next chapter and focusing on expanding Blue Ridge Cafe and our on-site event services.

    Excellent service and food

    Sue and her team did a fantastic job! They were easy to work with from the beginning and went far to provide accommodations for our guests. The food was delicious and service was top notch. Highly recommend!

    The best there is!

    From day 1 Sue (and her team) was all we could’ve asked for and more in a caterer. She was efficient, informative, and communicative. Took care of everything from menu requests to rental changes the second we asked and is such a sweet person! Sue and the chef have been catering together for over 20 years and it made me so confident that they’d be able to handle anything that came up with no problems. On top of all of that, the food was exceptional!! We loved it and got tons of compliments from our guests and Sue and her team even packed up all the leftovers for us to enjoy the week after the wedding. Really added to the value of what we got for the cost of catering. I really hope Sue keeps catering for years to come because she’s the best there is!!

    Blue Ridge Cafe & Catering's reply:

    Thank you, thank you for such kind words. It was my/our pleasure and we were honored to be a small part of your joyous day! Best to both of you!

    Blue Ridge Cafe and Catering Wedding Reception

    Fantastic food and presentation. The food was well prepared and delicious. The wait staff were friendly and did a great job seeing that all the guests had everything they needed, even extra napkins. The church hall was cleaned to perfection after the reception by the wait staff. I would gladly recommend Blue Rigde Cafe and Catering for any event.

    Blue Ridge Cafe & Catering's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind review. It was a pleasure being a small part of your BIG day! Wishing the two of you much happiness.
