Delicious food and amazing team!

Beth and her team at Emily's Cafe are amazing. They are responsive and easy to work with. We received so many compliments on the dinner and the cake. The team that worked our wedding (I'm blanking on their names, sorry!) were an absolute delight and some of them were even dancing a bit :) Highly recommend booking Emily's Cafe for your wedding.

Absolutely Delicious! Emily's is Wonderful

I'm so grateful Emily's Cafe & Catering catered our wedding. Emily's food is delicious, classic and we are still hearing from our guests that it was the wedding dinner they've ever had. Emily made our lives so easy in the planning process, she went above and beyond for a year leading up to our wedding and made our day extra special with small creative suggestions she made along the way (cupcakes!). Thank you Emily!

Amazing from start to finish ! Could not be happier !

Emily and her staff were such a pleasure to work with, all very helpful and so organized. We had 235 guests all outside in Amwell NJ. The set up looked stunning. Emily helped guide us with selections along the way to create my daughters perfect wedding day. Our guest raved about the appetizers as well as dinner selection we choose. We also had her help with bar selection /service. We are so glad to have had a wonderful experience with Emily and would highly recommend her over and over!!!

We got the chance to work with Emily and company at wedding at the Prallsville Mill in Stockton last year and they were amazing to work with. Dinner was spectacularly timed and was excellent. As a DJ I get to sample food from a lot of different caterers and the Chilean Sea Bass was out of this world! Emily was always very friendly and courteous and everything went amazingly well. Highly recommend.
