  1. #1 Chef Pete Coleman

    (100 reviews)

    Jeri D.

    We hired Pete to cater my 35th birthday party for 22 people which was a murder mystery party that we hosted at our home. From the first time we spoke, he was very responsive, answering my phone calls, emails and texts. He offered a lot of advice and any questions I had. He also had items that he brought that helped me cut down on my rental prices (plates, cloth napkins and silverware). All of my guests commented on how delicious all of his food was including apps, salad, main dishes and desserts. It was all delicious and presented very well. He and his two servers were great with helping to set up and break down and they were very very polite and considerate. My only real comparison is when my husband and I got married 8 years ago and used the facilities on-site catering company. Although it was a completely different type of event, I was somewhat expecting to have a deposit, signed contract and more of a set "this is the menu" like we did for the wedding but in this case, we didn't. Typically I am wanting to be very hands on (some may say controlling :) ) and have every detail planned out but I let Pete run with the menu (aside from my dietary restrictions and a couple of preferences) and he was great, I have no regrets and would hire him again no questions asked! The whole evening was a success and I would highly recommend working with Pete. I am thinking of what event I could host next just so I could have Pete come cater again. I will be recommending him to anyone I know who is searching for a caterer.

    (29 reviews)

    Muriel M.

    Reina and her staff were such a pleasure to work with from start to finish. In the midst of all the chaos of planning and execution they were there, calm and reassuring. The lumpia was BOMB. Everyone absolutely loved it! All of the food was great. We had so many compliments on the food as well as the bar service that they provided. We couldn't have asked for anything more. We would definitely hire Mocha and Matcha again for future events!

  10. #10 Taqueria Cazadores

    (65 reviews)

    Zsofia S.

    The Taqueria Cazadores team is excellent. They were professional and sent over an invoice once we confirmed the date and time. They arrived to the event exactly when we agreed and set up the taco platter very nicely. The food was fresh, warm, and delicious! Everyone had seconds....or even thirds. Don't miss out on the churros which were an excellent ending to the party and the meal! Thank you Taqueria Cazadores!

Thumbtack Spotlight

Taste for the Senses

(30 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I have catered a variety of exciting and innovative events over the past 2 years. From catering a food station event with 15 different international selections to feeding 600 construction workers in hard hats, a private dinner party for 20 featuring a live cooking demo and five-star meals or a food station celebration of SF Neighborhoods event to celebrate three high school reunions at an aquarium, no event is too big or too small. I get personal satisfaction.

Who or what inspired you to start your business?

I feel my passion and personal satisfaction with my preparation of my unique internationally fused cuisine when I see smiles on my customers' faces and know that I have created a memorable culinary experience for my clients, whether it is a corporate event, a wedding, a fund-raiser or a celebration.
