My 'Go To' neighborhood catering spot

I've ordered catering from First Slice twice now, one small event and one large, and we've been blown away both times. Nicole is so easy to communicate with, offers excellent recommendations specific to the event/guests/travel/preferences etc, and the food and desserts are SO good! Our family's favorites include the quiche bites, beef taquitos, empanadas, and of course their blueberry cream cheesecake bites! You will be really happy with your catering order from First Slice and your guests will too!

First Slice was incredible!

We hired First Slice to cater our wedding and had the best experience working with them. We first reached out to them because we liked their mission and they were in our neighborhood. Nicole was so helpful and friendly throughout the entire planning process which included rescheduling our wedding multiple times due to COVID. We had several meetings with her including a tasting where we literally couldn't decide what to get because everything was delicious. The whole team was super professional and adjusted to our changes with no issues. Our friends and family keep talking about how good the food was weeks later. I'd hire them again in a heartbeat!
