    Top notch food and service!

    Snuffins was a delight to work with and did an excellent job rolling with the punches when we had to delay our wedding 3 times due to Covid. When we were finally able to celebrate, they cooked an incredible menu that suited our tastes perfectly and received rave reviews from all our guests. Even now a month after the event, friends and family still comment about how delicious the food was! The service was spectacular and we loved the basket of leftovers they made for us at the end of the night. An excellent value for the price!

    Snuffin's is a Win-Win!

    Our daughter and son-in-law decided on a "mini-destination" wedding at Thornewood Castle (we live in Anacortes/they live in Seattle and most guests were coming in from out of state), so we were not familiar with caterers in the area. Snuffin's was on Thornewood's preferred caterers list and after viewing their website and menu, I was quite sure we wanted to use them as they had a beautiful website, were familiar with our venue and provided the type of food we wanted to serve. It wasn't until meeting Austin at our initial tasting, that I KNEW Snuffin's was the right choice. Not only was the tasting delicious, Austin made sure to secure all the important details that gave me the confidence that our event would be executed successfully. One of the things that gave me that confidence was that Austin would be the "Captian" of our event and would take us from the planning stages through the entire event. (The other caterer I looked into did not provide that). I was able to call and discuss details with her and was always given the time needed. As the event drew closer, of course there were some unexpected bumps (party rental place overselling the flatware we had chosen a year ahead, rain when we had been planning a garden wedding), but Austin helped us navigate everything successfully and our daughter's wedding was the gorgeous event we had planned. Oh, and the food was amazing too! To me, the execution was almost more important than the food being fabulous, (all it needed to be was good enough right?) as we had a strict timeline, but the food was absolutely delicious - even better than the tasting. We received many compliments from our guests. I would say it was a win-win for sure! I only wish we lived closer to Snuffins so that we could use them for all of our future catering needs. Maybe we just need to plan all our events closer to them!

    Snuffin's Catering's reply:

    Sarah,

    I can not express enough how honored we all are to have had the pleasure to work with you and your family on Marit & Julian's big day. You all will forever hold a very special place in my heart!

    Thank you so much for trusting myself and Snuffin's Catering with the important details of this amazing wedding. Your attention to detail and design is like nothing that I have ever seen before. You are truly talented and I had so much fun going on the planning journey with you.

    Sending you big big hugs!
    -Austin

    Excellent food and service

    After we had our tasting session with Austin, we were sure we found our caterer. Everything tasted excellent, and the grilled cheese shooters were a hit! The guests not only mentioned how great the food was, but how wonderful the bartender and catering staff were throughout the event. A big thank-you to Austin for coordinating this, especially during these hectic times!

    Snuffin's Catering's reply:

    Heidi & Rob,

    I can not express enough how much of a pleasure it was to be a part of your special day. Your love for eachother shone through like I have never seen before and the guests surrounding you all were a true testament to this. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Watters!
