Best wedding caterers ever

If you鈥檙e thinking of using Bread Garden for catering, THIS IS YOUR SIGN!!! I hired them for my wedding, and it was the most delicious wedding food I鈥檝e ever had, and a majority of our guest have told us the same. Not to mention their service, attention to detail and coordination with our venue exceeded all expectations.

They are also very careful and considerate when it came to providing delicious options for vegans, peanut allergies, gluten intolerances, and more

We loved working with Christa, who answered all of our questions quickly and in detail.

Awesome service and wonderful food

Bread Garden catered our daughter鈥檚 wedding for 250 people on Saturday July 29. Their service was top notch and the food was excellent. Presentation and service on the buffet line was smooth, organized and timely.
The planning process ahead of the wedding was also smooth and easy. Christa was always responsive and helpful. We would recommend to anyone planning a wedding!

Excellence in catering our daughter's cocktail hour at her wedding

Bread Garden was a dream come true for hiring a caterer for our daughter's wedding. We are not local, so the prompt communication and informative recommendations were a blessing. Even a last minute addition of an item for delivery was executed smoothly. The food and wine was exquisite. We were in Iowa City for a week and found ourselves eating and shopping at Bread Garden daily. Even if you are not in need of a caterer, please make time for a trip to Bread Garden. It's a treat!!!
