Amazing Vegetarian Friendly Caterer!

We booked Serendipity after looking high and low for a vegetarian friendly caterer- and boy did they deliver! They made an incredible variety of food that even meat-eaters didn't know it was vegetarian! Everyone was talking about how incredible the food was and they were so easy to work with! They even managed to get everything up and running at a campsite during a wind storm that caused a power outage! I cannot recommend Serendipity enough!

Seamless Experience From Planning To Clean Up

Serendipity catered our June 2021 wedding at the Ithaca Farmers Market and provided all tables/chairs/plates/etc.

We had an incredibly positive experience working with their team. Even though COVID presented so many challenges and uncertainties while planning our big day, the team's professionalism, experience catering many large events and their knowledge of our venue provided us so much peace of mind, especially as we planned our wedding 100% remotely.

Prior to our wedding day, they were easy to get in touch with, knew every question to ask us and proactively did so. They took all of our thoughts into consideration while making good suggestions to make our vision even better.

On our wedding day, they arrived well ahead of time to set up, followed the plan we discussed so the evening flowed seamlessly and the food and drinks were great! They cleaned up afterwards and truly made the experience so easy.

Both my husband and I would highly recommend Serendipity!

Top Notch Experience!

We had a private ceremony and an intimate reception and Serendipity was outstanding. The food was phenomenal and still talked about two years later. We had to change our menu last minute and they were quick to accommodate. The staff was also wonder and went out of there way to make everything perfect. They served the food and made sure everything was packaged up for us, with some food labeled for the bride and groom so we could have Food later.

Food is one of the most important things and they knocked it out of the park!! We also rented all the tableware and they set up and took care of that as well. They truly made everything a breeze!
