Due to the rising costs of produce, beef & poultry plus the low Canadian dollar we have had to

increase some of our prices. We wish it wasn’t so.


Over the past 24 years we have catered hundreds of events all over mainland

Nova Scotia and parts of New Brunswick & PEI.

We pride ourselves in the quality of our foods, presentations and level of professional service.

Our on-site service ranges from kitchen setup, dining setup, food service,

organizing rentals and the all important cleanup.

Contact us by phone or email for a cost estimate prepared to suit your

requirements and your budget.
