    Just perfect service and attention to detail.

    My wife and I were married at Rosewood Farms in Elkton, MD on July 18th 2021. I went to the University of Delaware for 8 years getting my doctorate in Electrical Engineering, so I was familiar with Caffe Gelato’s great desserts and romantic atmosphere after multiple trips with my wife to be over the years. When we first decided on our venue we really had nothing to go on but their recommended vendor list, so we reached out to the 5 or 6 listed caterers to see what options and pricing they may offer. Although there were several fantastic restaurants, Caffe Gelato stood out for the sheer size and selection available at the price point possible for my wife and I. From the very beginning they expressed their flexibility and want to capture the special mood and feel of our individual wedding vision and asked what special types of food and drinks they could perfect for us to make our day special. After a wonderful tasting dinner with a few family members we were set on Caffe Gelato. My wife and I were planning our whole wedding from our new home in San Diego, CA despite our wedding venue in Elkton, MD close by to where we met and grew up. Despite our original planner and point of contact moving on from the restaurant, we received 5-star support, communication, and planning from the owner himself, Ryan, and his wonderful staff Glenda, Morgan, and Leslye. They immediately gave us a call to let us know that had seamlessly transitioned the plan and had their new coordinator reach out to us to confirm all of our details would be perfect (Leslye is the sweetest and so responsive with any questions you may have.) Despite our nerves and the chaos of post pandemic wedding planning, Caffe Gelato delivered a flawless rehearsal dinner for our guests and made our day stress free and beautiful from my wife’s catered breakfast the morning of the wedding day, to the final dessert tables. They even had the time to carefully place custom cookies with each of our guests at their place setting with only a days notice of final table arrangements. I could not recommend Ryan, Glenda, Morgan, Leslye, and the rest of Caffe Gelato more for any couples looking to make sure their day is both stress free and delicious. Ryan was able to make our wedding, and he might have been the best dressed guest at the venue. He and his staff were lightning quick to attend to any needs we had and made the venue look stunning. Thank you Ryan!, and best of luck to the many happy couples that decide to use Caffe Gelato in Newark, DE for their big day.

    Top notch service and catering

    From start to finish, we were amazed with the Cafe Gelato team, their hospitality, and offerings. Our venue recommended Cafe Gelato, and I have to admit that I always thought Cafe Gelato would be out of our price range and I was so pleasantly surprised when they were well within our budget. I loved that so much was included or could be added to the package which made planning easier for us (glassware, dinnerware, linens and even cocktail tables). I was also surprised when they were able to cater our wedding in Chestertown, MD located about an hour from their restaurant. The tasting experience was the best, the service, the abundance of food, and having our tasting in the private wine room was so fun, we left so excited for our wedding day and knew our guests were going to be so pleased! Even with a change in their event manager just a few days before the wedding, everything was flawless and absolutely amazing and more than we ever expected! Ryan German, Cafe Gelato’s owner, was even there to make sure everything went smoothly- our wedding was small, only 50 guests, so we were really honored that he came to oversee the day- it is just a testament to the excellent customer service Ryan has cultivated among his team. There was a huge team there on our wedding day, multiple servers, multiple bartenders, a large kitchen staff, and every single team member was so helpful and courteous- one bartender ensured our dog had plenty of water which we thought was very thoughtful and above/beyond! The bar and cocktail hors d’oeuvre display were beautiful, breathtaking, so classy, and Cafe Gelato brought all of the beautiful platters and displays. And last but certain not least, the food! Amazing! Everyone loved it!! There was so much food and all of it was so delicious! We opted for the gelato and cookies instead of a wedding cake and it was an excellent choice, our guests really enjoyed it! What we also love is that we can visit the restaurant and relive some of the wedding dishes and even see some of our favorite servers who were at our wedding! Thank you so much to Ryan, Leslye, Glenda, Emily and the Cafe Gelato Team!
