How does your business stand out?

I customize menus for each event and client. I LOVE to be creative and delight in working 1 on 1 with my clients until we get exactly the menu they can be EXCITED about offering at their event.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

The best feeling is seeing the satisfaction in each bite, to hear sincerely "this is so good," or "how did you make this?!" I LOVE interacting with my clients on a personal level.

    Hire Mezcla Maggie's Catering; really the BEST!
    Maggie provided excellent, professional service for our Holiday department lunch. She showed up early to set up and was vey accommodating. Everyone raved about the food. We had a tight budget to work with and Maggie was my pick after speaking with 4 other caterers. I highly recommend Mezcla Maggie's Catering and will definitely use her again. I have also passed along her contact info/services to other departments in our company.

    Highly recommended for catering and chef services.
    Excellent quality of product and service for an event of 50.....post wedding brunch. Services included pre-made catered food, coupled with on-site made-to-order food, as guests came and went to the brunch. I cannot over emphasize the professionalism, high food quality, patience, flexibility, and unflappable demeanor Maggie and her associate exhibited throughout the event. I highly recommend this company for catering.

    Maggie catered a bridal shower at a small winery in downtown Denver for my daughter. I live in CA and used Thumbtack to solicit a small event caterer several months ago. Maggie and I communicated via email on the menu for finger foods and the setup process and final headcount, and text on the final headcount, etc. She was on time and her set up and food presentation was lovely. Her cheese plate, bruschetta and lemon bars were excellent. Highly recommended.

    Maggie did an amazing job catering our Thanksgiving dinner. The whole family raved about the meal. We were all in agreement that this was the best Thanksgiving meal we ever had. My brother kept taking photos to show off this fantastic feast to his friends to make them jealous. The turkey was so moist and delicious, the pecan pie and the homemade whip cream were delectable. I loved the stuffing and the gravy. Everything was perfect. Maggie was a joy to work with and was open to ideas. She delivered the meal on time (in a snow storm!) and it was hot and ready to go. There was an abundant amount of food so were able to enjoy the meal again as leftovers. The next time I'm in Denver I will be asking for Maggie’s help with catering. Thank you Maggie!

    I was very impressed with the not only the delicious food, but also the way it was presented and the great communication Maggie had with me. Maggie was very flexible when I had some last minute quantity changes. Even though we had agreed on her just dropping off the food, she (as well as two of her associates) stayed throughout the event to replenish trays and walk around to serve the guests. I was blown away by the service and will definitely be recommending her to many others! I also have to mention the cake pops (my favorite) were especially delicious -- Maggie even took the time to put our company logos on them! Thank you Maggie!

    Maggie did a great job working with our very small budget! We probably should have asked her for more food though. Tip with a wedding: get way more than you need! Overall, she did a very good job with the yummy food. My only wish was that she could stay for the whole thing and maybe be the one to run to the store to get more food and have us just pay her back. No worries though. Still got many compliments on the food. :) Thanks Maggie!

Just from our discussion about the bride's love of travel and adventures she created a truly memorable menu which included: salmon ceviche shooters, fig and manchego flat bread with caramelized onions and goat cheese cheesecake with coconut, among other wonderful selections. Maggie assisted us in obtaining linens for our event and offered to pick up and return the linens as well. While at the event she was on hand, helpful and attentive.

    I was looking for a catering business for a surprise birthday party for my husband. After talking with two other businesses I chatted with Maggie Kates. She was instantly a breath of fresh air while also giving me some great ideas for a medley of foods for my party. Her help and positive cheerful self instantly put me at ease. When the day of the party came, Maggie was prompt, the display of food was wonderful and looked outstanding. My friends enjoyed a great party and loved all the amazing appetizers, entrees and desserts Maggie created. I received several compliments that evening and happily gave credit to Maggie's Catering. I also have to say that during the time we conversed about the party, I was lucky to even gain a friendship with her that continues. Thank you again Maggie Kates.
