Ella King came to our rescue when a local caterer my husband and I hired for our son's bar mitzvah basically dropped off the face of the earth. We hired the previous catered 10 months before our event in order to plan ahead, but as the event drew closer it was evident that we needed to make a change. I contacted Ella on a Sunday, she returned my call that same evening and we set up an appointment to meet two days later. At that appointment Ella listened to my needs and food preferences and within 24 hours had a menu and proposal emailed to me for my review. And she has been that efficient and professional from the word go.
Ella is warm, approachable, detail oriented, fair, and efficient. Her food is so delicious, appealing, healthly, and fresh that our guests gave rave reviews. Ella's food and her staff were complimented by all of our guests. Did I mention that she caterer two events for us on the same day? A luncheon and a dinner at another venue 25 miles away.
Another important quality that Ella provides is a sense of calm and control. She gave me the feeling that everything that I wanted was under control, and it was. She also provided such nice details and special touches that made the event even more special. I really knew I could rely on her to make recommendations and often took her advice because it was evident that she knew what she was doing.
Her prices are very fair, her staff is outstanding and she was also at the event to make sure everything “went swimmingly.” She made sure that my family and extended family were served first, she made delicious vegetarian meals for my close friend and her husband, and all without me needing to do anything but enjoy the meal and the party. The kids loved the dinner buffet she put together for them and her brownie buffet for the kids was unbelievable. The adults were jealous until they saw their dessert!
We cannot thank you enough Ella for all you did for Mitchell and our family. We’ll be seeing you for dinner at the Café in Hollister.
Cafe Ella's is the best. My friends and I go there at least once a week to relax, have a glass of wine and wonderful food. The service has always been very friendly and professional.
Don't miss this jewel of a place to dine!!!
