Fantastic food for our wedding!

We booked Johanna's Catering in conjunction with the Roanoke Bungalow and the food was amazing. The passed appetizers were a perfect starter and the main courses were delicious. The Seared Salmon, Teriyaki Glazed Beef Short Ribs and the Chicken Marsala were excellent. Great portions and everyone loved it.

The best meal my guests had while in the OBX

I hired Johanna after our first caterer was giving me the run-around. I had NO IDEA how easy and effortless the process could be. Her whole team showed up, professional and confident and then they didn't need any direction from me (the bride).

The food was RAVED about (even our vegan attendee said it was amazing and appreciated having elevated, unique alternatives). We had attendees from over 900 miles away attendees and I was determined to provide them with the best meal they would have while in the OBX. Thank you Johanna and team for making that possible!

Everything was amazing, down to the desserts. We chose to use their hummingbird cake as our wedding cake (honestly I had decision fatigue and the $50 for the cake was unbeatable). And it was well worth it! We later found out it was vegan and gluten free which was the "icing on the cake" (pun intended).

A few weeks later, and I'm still thinking about that crab stuffed flounder...
I think the cafe is currently closed to focus on catering, but I hope it opens back up so if we come down for our anniversary every year, we can have it!

Delicious taco bar!

We selected the taco bar option from Johanna's Catering (Cafe Lachine) and all our guests LOVED it! Johanna and her team were super easy to work with all along, answering all our questions promptly and always giving us detailed info. On the day of, they arrived right on time and everything went seamlessly. There was more than enough food for our guests and everyone raved about it!
