    Let’s start with the most important aspect you want in a vendor: COMMUNICATION. We originally put a deposit down with a different caterer from Harrisburg, and much to my stress and dismay, they would not return any of my calls, emails, or texts. We were one month before the wedding and still did not have a final contract, so we decided we needed another option.

    We went to Jen on a whim and prayer explaining our situation, and from day one she was upbeat, sympathetic, and reassuring. I was nearly in a constant panic, but Jen bent over backward finding time around my work schedule to talk and meet with us and made sure all our requirements and needs were met.

    Celiac disease and severe peanut allergies run in my extended family, and Jen took this extremely seriously. She took no chances using only ingredients that were certified to have no trace of gluten or peanut, and when she had a concern, she always checked with me to be sure she wasn’t using an ingredient that would be questionable.

    We received many compliments on the food, and there was enough for ourselves and our guests to go for seconds. Her bartending staff was also amazing. We stocked a full bar with our own beer, wine, and liquor, and they had no problems making any of the cocktails we had on the menu. Her staff was professional, her prices were reasonable, and she saved our big day. I would recommend her to anyone!

    Jen was AMAZING from day one. She was very flexible with us every step of the way. We had a tight time frame to get into our venue on the day of and start our festivities, but she worked really hard to make sure that everything was taken care of. The food was delicious and her pricing was very reasonable. She made sure that our older family members and the newlyweds had food before anyone, which I thought was very special. I would recommend her to anyone.

    Jen was phenomenal. She took care of me and my husband the whole night of our wedding. Her communication was stellar and she was so easy to work with. The food was incredible and so was the service. She will forever be my "go-to" caterer!

    I cannot say enough about the incredible job Thyme After Thyme Catering did for our Celebration Wedding Party this past Saturday. The hors d'oeuvres were amazing and the food table was picture perfect. I heard great comments all evening about how wonderful all the food was. Great job and I will highly recommend Jen to anyone looking for a top notch caterer.

    Jen provided us with an excellent menu at a budget that met our needs. She was helpful in providing us with numerous options in our price range. She was very flexible in dealing with changes in the number of attendees, allowing us to add additional items, in place of meals for people who were not able to attend at short notice. The food was excellent, as we received many positive comments. I would strongly recommend her services.

    We had the pulled pork, bar b que'd chicken and cole slaw was our main meal and it was terrific. We had our event planned for a previous date and had to post pone the event and the owner was so flexible with our short notice and accommodating us for a holiday weekend when those dates are usually filled up months in advance. Thanks again for the great food and the flexibility on rescheduling.

    This caterer prepared wonderful food for a wedding brunch that was thrown together in 2 weeks. The food was beautifully presented, was hot and tasted so good. The staff was so friendly and made the celebration even more special!

    I enjoyed working with Jen from day one. She is easy-going, yet confident. Jen baked our delicious wedding cake and she also provided our catering for our rehearsal dinner. She was always on time and there weren't any problems. Our rehearsal dinner food was delicious and she provided convenience to my already busy schedule - for that I am very grateful!
    In the beginning of choosing cake flavors/fillings I had concerns about a particular cake flavor but she was quick to correct the situation. Our wedding cake was a chocolate cake with peanut-butter filling (to die for, btw!) with a white buttercream icing, we also had another layer of white cake with strawberry preserves filling, also with the white buttercream icing. We had positive feedback from several family members & friends. The cake looked beautiful but even more important to my husband and myself it tasted amazing!! I cannot wait for our 1st anniversary to indulge in our "wedding cake" all over again! Thank you Jen!

    Thyme After Thyme Catering is certainly a diamond in the ruff. Jen and her family created such a magnificently perfect day for us and our guests. We had ideas we took from our friends' weddings and she created our wedding from just that. We wanted to have something for everyone at our reception with having a "backyard BBQ" kind of feel. Never doing a "station" style buffet Jen executed perfectly. The most unique idea (coming from Jen's mom) was a mashed potato bar with all the fixings served in martini glasses. Simply unforgettable. Our guests boasted and ate EVERYTHING. Having two separate areas at our reception venue for apps and dinner, Jen and her staff did a great job being attentive to our guests' needs. From having staff to help my family set up/tear down to late evening snacks for after dinner and during dancing to little ice cream dixie cups to please my father's love for ice cream with his cake, Jen thought of everything and was willing to do whatever she needed to do to guarantee a most memorable day for my husband and I, our families and friends. Jen and her family/staff are wonderful to work with, honest, and just felt like Jen has been a friend of the family for years. Thank you for everything!!

    Jen from Thyme After Thyme Catering was such a pleasure to work with for our wedding this past summer. She helped us come up with a menu that fit within our budget, and the menu fit with the theme/feel of our wedding. The food was displayed very nicely at the reception. There was plenty of food which allowed guests to go back for more if they wished. The day of the wedding, she (and her staff) took care of everything that we asked. We provided our own desserts and they were so helpful in getting them set up and displayed at the dessert table. They also made sure that all the requests of the venue were met in terms of cleaning up the kitchen afterwards so we didn’t have any issues with that. Jen recommended a bartender who did a great job. Thyme After Thyme Catering helped make our wedding a beautiful and memorable day.

    The staffing and food were FABULOUS! The event was a Cub Scout Blue & Gold Banquet to celebrate their accomplishments and for the Webelos to cross over to Boy Scouts. Jennifer Colna, the owner, is a true professional and exceptionally organized. The pricing was reasonable and she was more than happy to accomodate any special dietary requests. EVERYONE was very happy with the meal & the service. Thank you Jenn and your staff for everything!!! Maureen Goetze co chair for the Bluie & Gold Banquet = Cub Pack 439 Kochenderfer UMC

    Jen Your service and food were awesome! I definitely will call you again if I have any need for a caterer (maybe when I get married again...someday maybe in not too far future:) ). I have absolutely no complaints and given the circumstances of the flood and all, I really appreciate that you were able to deliver all as promised. That shows true dedication to your business and I am sure you will go far:) Feel free to use me for a reference for other prospective customers if you ever have the need to provide a reference. Thanks again!

    When we first met Jen we thought she was really nice and passionate about her job. She made it clear that she wanted to help make our day special and that she was honored to cater our wedding. She was was willing to work within our budget and was flexible with our ideas. Jen was honest with us about what she was able to do and what she was not willing or able to do.

    I was a little concerned after our tasting, but had an open mind about other menu options. Unfortunately on the day of our wedding, I was disappointed by some of the food and with the disorganization of the staff/service. I partially blame myself for not clearly communicating a detailed schedule of events with them ahead of time and not having all our expectations in writing.

    I definitely do not recommend using their bar staff. Once again, we probably did not have everything organized or spelled out ahead of time, but I would hope a professional would be able to look around and figure it out. I was unaware that there was a problem until after the wedding was over, but I was embarrassed to hear from my guests that the bartender was rude and had no clue what he was doing (ex: putting ice in red wine).

    Even though I was not impressed by the food or service, I was appreciative of Jen's affordability and flexibility.
