    Extraordinary!

    Christa and The Bread Garden are amazing! We worked with Christa to plan the food for a wedding. The food was delicious and the service was extraordinary! I highly recommend The Bread Garden for any catering event!

    Amazing catering from Bread Garden!

    Our guests loved the food. Christa was so helpful, even helped me with a to-go tasting as we were trying to choose caterers during Covid-19! They were even able to accommodate our vegan guest. The staff was experienced and didn't need any guidance for set up!

    Above and Beyond

    We had a great experience working with Bread Garden to plan our day - from a champagne toast after the ceremony, to cocktail hour appetizers, to dinner and finally our cookie tower, they went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we wanted! They even offered wine service during dinner which was such a nice touch for our guests. We absolutely loved the food and everything was hot and delicious when it hit the table even though we opted for a plated meal for our guests. They are truly flexible and will work with you to do things the way you want. BG is also EXTREMELY accommodating when it comes to dietary restrictions, so I highly recommend them if that is a concern for you or any of your guests. Thank you to Christa and the whole BG team for being amazing!
