Angel catered a brunch for my 13-year-old daughter and her friends to celebrate my daughter's bat mitzvah. It was SO much fun and working with Angel was a joy! The food was delicious, and Angel not only provided a gourmet coffee station, she also came up a make-your-own-pancake bar that the girls went crazy for! She was also punctual, responsive, cleaned up thoroughly, and was overall a joy to work with. Thank you, Angel!

Would absolutely recommend Empire Vegan. Our Philly wedding hosted 150 people, and included a personal charcuterie board, passed hors d'oeuvres, a grazing table, family style entrees and a dessert buffet. We collaborated to create a personalized menu that accommodated many allergies. We were able to make changes after a tasting. Communication was great . She came to the day with so much enthusiasm, and other vendors enjoyed working with her. We enjoyed the food immensely and it was gratifying to hear feedback from our guests who were raving. People were particularly incredulous that the goat cheese was vegan. Even meat eaters in their 80s were happy. We are so impressed at the thoughtfulness and care that was put into the food.
