    Delicious Food, Great to Work With, Fabulous Value

    Ruth was wonderful to work with. Our guests couldn鈥檛 stop talking about her cakes! We also received several comments about the food, specifically the sweet potato biscuits and chicken and waffles. One of the coolest things about working with Ruth was that she was open to new ideas and generally very easy to work with. She is extremely responsive and detail-oriented - she communicated with our venue and made sure that everything was ready far in advance. Choosing Ruth meant there was one less thing to worry about since everything was so easily figured out, and the food was exactly what we hoped for for our wedding!

    Catering By Teatime's reply:

    Thank you Rachel, right back at you with how easy you both were to work with. And I loved how I got to make not one, but TWO wedding cakes, one for each of you!! Wishing you both the very best, Ruth

    Hands down, the Best Caterer in town!

    It is hard to put into words how incredible Ruth and her team at Catering by Teatime were. During our cocktail hour, we had a variety of foods which were both stationary and passed. They delivered a flawless buffet and our guests wouldn't stop raving about the food as well as the presentation. We had several consultations with Ruth and it was apparent she truly knows her trade. Our venue allowed us to bring in outside liquor and she was spot on the amount to purchase for our guests. As a surprise during our first consultation, Ruth shared with us she would also provide the wedding cake which is a wonderful gift and a huge savings. Not to mention, one less vendor to coordinate with. Ruth and her team adhered to the timeline perfectly and we had nothing to worry about. We knew Ruth had everything under control. Catering by Team really knows how to put the customer first and we felt so special during the whole process making our Wedding even more memorable for us as well as our guests.

    Catering By Teatime's reply:

    Heather, I cannot tell you what an honor it was to be part of this wedding. I have known your family for many years, the reception was like a giant family reunion. Thank you for including me, Ruth

    Wedding of our dreams with food to remember!

    We all know we've been to weddings where we are thrilled for the couple but the food was cold or less than desirable. That was NOT our wedding! We barely had any food left to take home at the end of the night! We had a diverse crowd for our interracial and inter-religious wedding (Hindu & Catholic) full of both meat eaters and vegetarians and Ruth handled it like an absolute pro. We were especially grateful that Ruth accommodated us by allowing for a few particularly niche, ethnic dishes from an Indian restaurant to be served alongside her excellent food. Ruth made mulled wine, a weird request I had, for our Christmas wedding that was SO good. Ruth also baked our gorgeous cake with vanilla raspberry and a chocolate coffee tiers - one for each of us - that was a total hit. Everyone especially raved about the chocolate! Having the cake included in the catering was just excellent and was one less thing I had to worry about.

    The staff were incredibly professional and pleasant and my guests even had a great time with them! The bartender was so fun and rocked out to the music with my brother at one point (still at her station). There wasn't a single person who didn't have a drink when they wanted one or left hungry. But the greatest part of this company is Ruth herself, who could not have been kinder, more accommodating, and just all around wonderful. It was so difficult to do absolutely everything during COVID but the catering was literally the easiest part of planning my wedding thanks to her. I didn't have to worry about a thing. My friends and family complimented the food for months after and still mention it to this day. I would hire Teatime a thousand times over!

    Catering By Teatime's reply:

    Thank you so much for such a lovely review! Your wedding was so much fun, blending the Indian food and Teatime menu made for such a great feast. I know the pandemic threw a couple of curve balls our way but in the end we rocked the house! I wish you both the very best, Ruth

Teatime Delicacies and its guru, Ruth NcBean, is one of the best kept secrets of the catering business world. The staff is professional, they produce scrumptious food and the presentation is impeccable. The inclusion of wedding cakes makes them it much easier for the couple as well. I am always impressed that the staff is so knowledgable of the venue and set up needs for each event. Many catering firms with whom we have worked dispatch a less than adequately informed staff regarding the venue. This never happens with Teatime Deliccaacies and it makes all the difference for an easy flow to the event.
