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!!!

Food that you will never forget

Food is one of the most important parts at your wedding. Make it count. Emily's does this and never disappoints! They left all of our guests asking where the food was from. Happy and full bellies had by all!

Highly recommended!!

Emily and crew were fantastic! They set up all the decorations beautifully and with very little direction needed. The food was absolutely delicious as well! They made clean up after the evening so easy and efficient. I would definitely recommend Emily's Cafe & Catering for all of your catering needs.

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.
