Julie did a great job! She was on time, professional, and the food was amazing! I had her cater a "day after brunch" for my wedding and ordered the continental breakfast. The hash brown casserole was delicious! I would definitely recommend Sunflower Chef Catering and will be using her again for catering in the future!

Kris and her team were terrific! Super-punctual, they showed up and set up in short order, leaving us to focus on other areas of our event. All of my guests were highly impressed with the menu and went out of their way to praise the variety and quality of the offerings. My only quibble (if you can call it that) was that there was too much food. Seriously, while all of our 80+ guests went back for repeat visits to the buffet, at the end of the day we still found ourselves with plenty of remaining food, some of which we sent home with guests, other that we saved for ourselves and, unfortunately, some we had to dispose of as it wouldn’t keep. We’d hire Kris again in a heartbeat. (Our 50th annoversary celebration is only ten years away.) Thanks for helping make our party memorable for both our guests and ourselves!

Local Yocals has easily become a family favorite. They are able to blend the perfect combination of incredibly fresh local flavors, and incredible chef talent. The menu as always has staples, but also has new flavors to try. If I have to choose a vendor at any event and Local Yocals is an option, we will choose them every single time. One thing I also appreciate is that they write where the food sources are from, it seems like everyone claims to be local, and this is the real deal. Well done.

Chef Terence Haynes is wonderful! I've purchased both cakes and cakies from him and was quite happy with both. You do need to plan ahead so that he has the necessary time to create your masterpiece.

I had to bring in pastries and lunch for 50 people during a day long training. Not only was the service outstanding but the food was above and beyond lunch expectations: fresh, fresh! The pastries were European in quality and the salad and gourmet wraps were exceptionally fresh, delicious and excellently presented. Definitely a go-to again!
