    Great first-time experience

    Powerhouse catered our wedding, and they were very friendly and easy to communicate with. We worked together to figure out what we needed, and it all came together great! I'd recommend the apricot stuffed chicken and the brownies, especially!

    Healthy, delicious, affordable food and drinks + excellent service!

    My husband and I used Powerhouse for catering for our wedding (cocktail hour, dinner and bar services) and had a phenomenal experience! We mainly worked with Laurel and she was super responsive and personable. Laurel was so open and flexible in terms of meeting our vision and budget with delicious, healthy food and drinks that our guests loved. She even went above and beyond to match the theme of our wedding with the catering potted plants and decor. The service and food was very affordable and tasty, and the staff were incredibly friendly and professional. Our guests had a phenomenal time and it felt so good to be able to fully trust Laurel, her staff and Powerhouse Catering on our most important day. Also, we so value and wanted to support their mission of being a woman-owned business that focuses on eco-friendly materials and fresh, local food. We would highly recommend Powerhouse Catering for any event. You will be delighted!

    Great food, great service, great events!

    I attended a wedding where Powerhouse was the caterer. They did such an excellent job with food quality and creativity, presentation and having excellent staff and overall great execution of the event, I was very impressed. So many guests were complimenting the catering I decided to get their info to use for my work catering. At that time I had been working in Events for a College in Charlestown when I first decided to use Powerhouse. They did such a great job all of my colleagues LOVED them, so many other departments asked for their info to use for their smaller meetings etc. We used Powerhouse for small lunch meetings, large reception style events and intimate sit down dinners. They excel in all areas! They are truly a well rounded, experienced caterer. When I left that job and went to a new school, I immediately made Powerhouse a preferred caterer so that I can continue to use them for all my events. They are a dedicated team and worked with me directly on all my needs for each event, they did a fantastic job helping me stay within my budget all the while not skimping on any aspect of our event. They really are dedicated to providing fantastic customer service and planning and executing beautiful events. It is truly a no brainer to use them over and over again for any and all events I have. I have even started using them for my own personal catering needs. They truly do it all and care just as much about your events as you do. I HIGHLY recommend this company!

    Powerhouse Café and Catering's reply:

    Thank you for the wonderful review Bridget! We love working with you and can't wait to start planning events with you again soon!
