  • My husband and I cannot thank Cate and Calihan Catering enough! They were absolutely amazing from start to finish! Everyone was so professional and our guests could not stop talking about how great the food was. We even had people telling us 'this was the best food we have ever had!' We had a few tricky things to coordinate like our champagne wall and they made everything happen without hesitation or question. They catered to what we were envisioning, made the entire process seamless and made sure our families were taken care of the whole time. They truly went above and beyond. My husband and I could not have asked for a better catering company!! You need to hire this team for any catering event, I promise they will not disappoint!!
