    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.

    Great to work with!

    Ruth and her team were amazing to work with, from planning to the day of the wedding! She was always responsive, attentive, and clear in her communications. Beyond that, the food was delicious and everyone loved it!

    We originally had our wedding planned for 2020, but of course things moved around. My husband and I are so thankful Ruth was able to be so agile and flexible with all the changes that come with moving a wedding due to a pandemic.

    For the cost, Ruth truly went above and beyond to make things amazing for us on our wedding day. We highly recommend!

    Thank you Grace, it was great to finally celebrate with both you and your family. The weather turned out to be spectacular, and the dancing was so much fun to watch!

    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!

    Catering By Teatime's reply:

    It was truly a delight to work with you and your family, and that party was an absolute BLAST!!!!! Glad you added a picture of the cake, it was spectacular. Best to you both, 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.
