Jen is amazing. I had no idea what having a chef in our home would be like, and it exceeded my expectations. It was such a pleasure to have Jen in our home, and we fell in love with her personality just as much as her food. She gave a small cooking lesson to my wife and her 10 friends for her birthday and then fed them a five-course meal. Everyone loved the food and is still talking about it. But they also loved meeting Jen, and to us, that was just as important. I wouldn't hesitate to hire her again.

William made my retirement party a HUGE success. I had an intimate group of people I worked with over the past 40 years from three different entities. The food was fantastic, the service excellent and when the meal was over the kitchen was immaculate. Highly recommend!! Thank you William and TJ!!

Food was amazing! She was amazing! I really didn't know what I wanted and she help me through figuring out what would work for my dinner party of 10. I also have some complicated food restrictions and she very willingly work around them. We ended up with an awesome three course meal. Most important she was able to go with the flow, if I didn't have something she needed she worked around it, when guests hadn't pretold me what they don't eat she worked around it. Everyone had a great time and it was because of the food and the service. Highly recommended!!

Adam prepared an amazing, custom menu for us! He was diligent about researching ingredients to accommodate my wife's food allergies and delivered a fantastic dinner. He was personable, professional and on time… a true Chef! Food was amazing! Timing of each plate was perfect, while we sat back and enjoyed great conversation during our courses. Food presentations were fit for TV and everything was made fresh. I'd find it hard to ask for more. Highly Recommend!

Each of the meals (one dinner and a few breakfasts) I've eaten at the SolarCart Cafe has been excellent, making me an appreciative repeat customer. The food is only one of the reasons for my return. Both Justin and Matt are extremely personable in addition to being wonderful cooks. The cart, build with with their own hands, is a model of ingenuity and efficiency. It even has a green roof!

Verified review

Ryan is a consummate professional whose devotion to his craft resulted in inventive, inspired and absolutely delicious food. We had the pleasure of hiring Ryan for an intimate event we were hosting to celebrate our marriage and throughout the entire process he remained reliable and engaged—consistently inquiring about food preferences and making suggestions based upon our responses. Logistically, he was responsive and reliable. Communicating with him was simple and he would always answer our inquiries with expediency and professionalism. Moreover, Ryan has the creativity to assemble a fantastic meal with as little or as much specificity as is given. We had guests who were vegans, vegetarians, and gluten/lactose free, as well as adventurous omnivores and I can say with honesty that at the end of the event, the component of the event that we heard most complimented was the food (from guests of all preferences). I would not hesitate to hire Ryan again and would urge anyone to seek him out for any event in which a fantastic culinary experience would be warranted.

Don is absolutely the best home chef who has prepared full meals for our busy family. Everyone, from Mom and Dad to the kids ranging from teenager to toddler, raves about his delicious and well planned meals. As a testament, everyone would rather eat Don's home prepared meals than go out to a restaurant, especially if the meal if followed up by one of his wife's homemade cookies! His service allows us to eat fine cuisine together as a family without worrying about "keeping a lid" on the little ones at a nice restaurant.
