    Highly recommend!

    I cannot say enough good things! My husband and I decided to work with Palate Pleasers to cater our wedding and it was the best decision!

    Most importantly, Amy (the executive chef) made the menu so personalized to us.

    She helped put together an incredible meal that matched our personalities perfectly. Because I am a vegetarian, she suggested a caprese salad with a tomato carving station. I repeat, a fresh tomato caving station. My friends and family could not stop talking about it. My husband has a big sweet tooth and loved the idea of an ice cream bar with all the homemade toppings. It was delicious.

    The company is also family owned and operated. One of my favorite parts of the entire wedding planning process was driving to Annapolis with my mom to meet with Amy Daniels and her family. They had so many creative ideas and made the entire process fun!

    It was supposed to be a 15 minute stop by but we ended up chatting with their team for more than 90 minutes. You can tell they love the work that they do... and it shows!

    Great food at an affordable price. Highly recommend!

    The wedding cake was delicious!

    My partner and I had done several wedding cake tastings, and Palate Pleasers was the best! Their italian buttercream was the right balance of sweet and light, and the cake flavors tasted fresh and pure. They were very flexible to help us design our cake (2 flavors with 2 different fillings) and even how to coordinate the proportions based on the number of guests. They were also flexible to include a few gluten and dairy free cupcakes for some of our guests. And they even delivered it to our reception venue! I highly recommend them for your wedding cake.

Sally and her staff are wonderful! We've done several weddings together and the food and service are always spot-on. Definitely one of the very best caterers in the area. Highly recommend!

Palate Pleasers had us at 'Hello'.... We still remember the first time we worked a wedding together - the quality and presentation of food was unbelievable, and the team was one of the nicest we'd ever worked with. Now, many events together later, we think even more highly of them. Passion, creativity, integrity, attention to detail and dedication are unmatched. Highly recomend!
