Alexa's was wonderful to work with. When I gave them a general idea of what we were looking for, they came back with a great proposal and then were very willing to work with us to customize. They were so professional and made sure we got exactly what we wanted (as opposed to some other caterers who tried to tell us what we wanted to fit better with what they wanted to do). The service was fantastic, everything looked beautiful and tasted even better, and the portions were more than generous! In fact the only downside is that we had way more food and leftovers than expected, but the staff boxed them up beautifully so that we were able to enjoy it all after. They set up and cleaned up perfectly and made our whole event run smoothly!

We hired Alexa's Cafe for our July Wedding. Although they were very helpful when we initially booked them for the event, things started to go down hill one week before our wedding: 1. Alexa's cafe charged us $200 more for equipment rentals above the quoted price. They stated the increase was because their equipment supplier increased their rates... and they were not obligated to honor the original price quote. 2. Alexa's cafe increased the amount of time they needed to set up for our event. They original quoted us 5 hours total. This changed to 6 hours one week before our wedding. No changes were made to the menu and the final guest count was 2 less then our original estimate. No explanation for the change was given. When we complained they were rude, and stated they would leave an hour early and not help with clean up. 3. We ordered and paid for a variety of non-alcoholic beverages (Soda, Lemonade, Coffee, Tea and Water). They only served Lemonade and Soda at our event. No refund or apology was offered. 4. They changed the setup for our event at the last minute. We asked for everything to be served as a buffet. Instead they broke out our food into 3 courses - appetizers, buffet and desert. This made no sense. Our event was very short and the tables were already set up for lunch. Plus the removed the appetizers before they were eaten, so we ended up with lots of left overs. Second, they placed the dessert out (cheese and crackers) after all food had been served. Because the food was located in another room, none of guests realized the cheese platter had been set up. Again we had a significant amount of left overs. 5. The steamed veggies were cold. Again when we complained they offered no apology. In summary - we paid $500 more then our contract quote, service was horrible and the food was cold. I definitely do not recommend Alexa's Cafe for catering.

Alexa's not only is a cafe, but it also has it's own catering department. I had been to Alexa's several times as far as the cafe goes, but didn't even know about their catering department until we started planning our wedding.

When I saw that they did catering I instantly starting inquiring. They were an absolute joy to work with, I probably e-mailed them 50 different times at the beginning, and they responded each and every time. They were so patient and willing to work with me and our budget. We booked over a year in advance, and they helped with each and every step of the way.

As the time got closer to the wedding, they even threw in a few extra things here and there to help us out. I couldn't have asked for a better caterer, they were so perfect. The food was absolutely incredible, and they did such a great job on the day of the wedding. We had to do a room flip to transform the ceremony into the reception, and they handled the whole thing included in their original quote. After the wedding was over, they completely cleaned the kitchen and tore down everything for us.

If you need a caterer for any event, I would definitely recommend them. They are a joy to work with, and can help with all of your details. ALEXAS ROCKS!

I hired them to cater my Wedding because I adored the restaurant; it's focus on local, organic and homemade and their friendly style. Though I should have stayed with the professional caterers. I hope my experience with them is an exception because no bride and groom should go through what we are- but to help other Brides PLEASE CONSIDER TWICE! A large portion of a Weddings total budget and experience is the food and having everything perfect EXCEPT the food was heartbreaking. Catering is not a service they should offer or make money from. Anyone that pays for a written contract of services should receive just that. But what we got from Alexa's was the worst. So much so that I feel I need to inform as many people as I can. We hired them to arrive at 3:00pm to begin set up, they arrived at 4:20 (after the ceremony was supposed to start at 4, but was delayed due to their late arrival). Their food was not at all what we discussed, had in writing or was paid for. We ordered chicken, beef and tofu shesh-kabobs, we got small sticks of grilled meats. No kabobs. We ordered a topping bar (compound butters, salts and cheeses) so that our guests could top their own corn on the cob, we got ONLY butter. We clearly stated the grooms allergies to mushrooms and the Wild Rice we ordered was turned into a mushroom pilaf. We paid for 110 people, and at the end of the night when we only had 66 people for the reception I would have thought we'd have tons left over. There were only 3 boxes of grilled items, the pilaf and bread rolls. If we had had even 10 more people stay for the reception we would have run out of food. And the worst of this is that after calling to discuss and not getting a returned call, I sent a email to the Owner and to this day I still have had no response. It makes me so upset that I could have trusted this company with such a large portion of my wedding to have them pull this on me and not have anything to say for it. PLEASE CONSIDER TWICE!

The food was amazing and everyone we worked with was very kind. However, we were told that the lady that was working with us through the process would be at the wedding venue the day of the wedding but she wasn't. It was all new faces. They also said they would add another sandwich option but it didn't show up on the wedding day either. They also schedule a lot of time for their staff to set up and clean up which you pay for and at the end of the night they pretty much stood around for over an hour. But overall everything was great and I would totally recommend them!! (If you meet with them at their cafe you get a free meal durning the meeting!)

I loved Alexa's! Everyone I worked with was knowledgeable, professional and really nice! They worked with me on a buffet dinner for our outside wedding and everything was wonderful. The servers were great, very professional and very efficient. We never had an empty tray and when the reception was over they were very quick about getting all our left overs boxed and ready to go. They were great and we loved the food! It was so nice to be able to sit and enjoy good food at our own wedding!!

Excellent food! I ordered a customized lunch style buffet for my wedding that accommodated my budget, dietary needs, and wedding style. They were very flexible, reasonable, and professional. I had several great comments about how great the food tasted. My only complaint is that the teriyaki salmon (which was amazing) was soo good that we ran out and people at the end of the line did not get any.

I cannot say enough good things about this caterer. I worked with Gretchen. She was amazing. She recommended a menu, met us at the hall and took care of everything for us. She always returned phone calls right away answered our questions immediately! On the day of the event, the staff was wonderful. They arrived several hours early, set everything up including the center pieces, favors, etc. The food was so good, I only wish that we had had more left overs! All the guests raved about the food. Then they cleaned everything, including sweeping the hall. All we had to do was pack up our gifts. Alexa's Cafe and Catering is in my book. the best caterer ever!!!

They were a little expensive but provided great Mexican food! I would highly recomend them. I would also say to design your own meal - they are very flexible and I didn't really like any of the meals they offered. They were also good about negotiating the price.
