    Couldn't ask for more!

    Working with Helga's Catering was an exceptional experience from the moment we set up a tasting all the way through the wedding and clean up. All of our guests loved the food and the staff was very organized and friendly. They made our big day even more amazing.

    Delicious and Easy

    We had such a great experience with Michael and the team at Helga's catering. Their food was delicious (we had their Greek meal with a few tweaks like swapping out for a family pierogi recipe for cocktail hour and got a lot of compliments), and their prices are so reasonable. It's clear that Helga's has been catering events for a long time-- we felt like we were in great hands throughout the planning process and the event.

I was the wedding coordinator on behalf of a couple that hired Helga's Catering for their wedding. I was very impressed with their level of service. They not only provided food but were in charge of all set up, break down, linens, dishes, etc. They drew out a floor plan prior to the wedding, which was very helpful for myself and the bride/groom. They were also in charge of clean up and I don't mean just breaking down the tables and clearing out. They vacuumed, among other things, and made the room look as though we were never there. Additionally, they arrived 30 minutes before the vendor start time, to begin set up, eager to get everything started. Of course, the food was great too!

Event Details by Edelina Event Details by Edelina Wedding Planners

Helga's is wonderful to work with; they stay in constant contact with the customer and with coordinators; very accommodating in terms of changes and specialty requests; wonderful, gracious and helpful staff with "can-do" attitudes, you really can't ask for more! Did I mention the food is also delicious?
