Catering Quick Picks
The items on this menu are available by ordering in advance, typically with at least 48 hours' notice. Please place your orders as far in advance as possible in order to ensure availability. In many instances we can accomodate last-minute orders; however, depending upon the items ordered and orders already in-house, more notice may be necessary. This is only a sampling of what we can offer. If you have something in mind that is not on our menu, please let us know and we can see how we can accomodate you!
