    Amazing catering company 10/10

    The best catering company out there! If we could give more than 5 stars we definitely would. Never thought I鈥檇 meet someone more organized than me but Christa might be that person. :) She is extremely on top of the ball, very responsive, and definitely someone that you can trust to perfectly execute your catering event. She also spent extensive time answering all my questions during our tasting and via email and response time was always very fast. Every minute detail was accounted for, down to ensuring what color serving platters or type of disposable plates we wanted for apps/desserts.

    We got so many compliments on our wedding food to the point where people were still talking about the food a week later! Sometimes food isn鈥檛 the most memorable thing from someone鈥檚 wedding day but definitely something that we and our guests will remember from our wedding day. Both sides of our families have amazing cooks so our whole family is honestly very picky when it comes to food so it is a HUGE compliment to say that there were no complaints and everything was cooked to perfection! Would recommend for catering to anyone and everyone planning a wedding and have already sent a few referrals Christa鈥檚 way :)

    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!
