    Catering by Teatime is the BEST!!

    Where do I start. Ruth has been so supportive through our COVID postponement and was the absolute best when it came to making our day unforgettable. She is very responsive, reasonably priced, and her food is delicious! She even went out of her way to make a difficult cake with edible flowers for us that was a dream!! I would absolutely recommend Ruth and her staff for you event!

    Fantastic Caterer

    Ruth did the most amazing job catering our wedding. She was kind and responsive to our needs. She was completely understanding and flexible when we had to cancel our 2020 wedding and reschedule for 2021. Ruth’s food was delicious, and we got so many compliments through out the night about how great everything tasted. Lastly, all the amazing food and service came at a completely feesible, budget friendly price. Overall I would definitely recommend Tea Time to anyone looking for delicious food.

    This is the best catering company, ever, thanks to the attention to detail and overall professionalism of Ruth MacBean. On two separate occasions in August 2016, she was able to put together two very large events, with involved many last minute details! She handled each challenge effortlessly and was able to provide just the right mix of appetizers, drinks and overall desserts. She is a Rock Star and you can not go wrong with letting her handle all of the catering, so that you can focus on other details with any event!

    Thank you Melinda,
    Catering in the Great Hall of the Department of Justice was indeed an awesome experience. A stunning room in one of the great Washington DC historic buildings. It was great fun!

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.
