Engagement Party on October 24, 2015
We used Catering by Teatime for an engagement party in our home. From the moment they arrived, the folks at Teatime had the situation under control. They were so professional and experienced that I knew we were in good hands. The food was creative and fabulous and beautifully presented. I received many compliments. The staff was all about us enjoying our guests and having no worries about the food. They cleaned up afterward and left everything spotless. Thanks so much, Ruth, for fitting us in your busy schedule. You were right about the chicken and waffles...they were a hit!

We chose Teatime after meeting with Ruth several times and leaving with the distinct feeling that Ruth would work with us tirelessly to make us happy. And she certainly delivered. First, I have to point out that you cannot find many other caterers for the price of Teatime in the DC area. It is truly a wonderful value for those on a budget in an expensive city. Second, Ruth was responsive and professional the entire time! The day of our event, the place looked incredible and the tables were just perfect. The food was beautiful and tasty, and we couldn't have been more pleased with the experience. I should add that the cake being included was a huge seller for us! All in all, I would highly recommend Teatime to anyone in the DC area.

Ruth MacBean owner of Teatime Delicacies catered our wedding 25 years ago and we also asked her to cater our 25th wedding anniversary reception. I would have never asked anyone else to cater this important function.

Ruth has the utmost integrity, is totally responsive to the needs of whomever is participating in her event. She is creative, original, artistic, thoughtful and flexible. She appears to have unending energy, with absolute committment to excellence.

I have known Ruth since 1983. While always asking her to cater my events, I have also witnessed her prepare for other multiple events that were not mine. I can unequivocally recommend her to everyone.

We hired Teatime Delicacies for our wedding on 9/19/2015, and we are so happy with the service they provided. Owner Ruth’s communication is exceptional. She quickly responds to emails and is very friendly. The food was fantastic. All of our guests raved about the appetizers, and I love her house salad. Teatime Delicacies truly goes above and beyond. I would highly recommend considering them for your next event.

I cannot overstate how amazing Ruth and her Teatime staff are. We heard about her from a co-worker who raved about her, and I'm going to do the same. We threw a surprise reception for ~110 people and wanted heavy hors d'oeuvres and an open bar to go along with our band and dance floor. Ruth made excellent suggestions and her entire operation was ON POINT. Our close friends and family who helped coordinate the event all said she was the highlight of the night because "she completely had her act together". When so many things are happening in one night, you will kill for a vendor who is self-sufficient and gives you one less thing to worry about. That vendor is definitely Ruth!

Here are a few standout details about Ruth and her service:

1) Throughout the evening, she frequently checked platters to be sure that the presentation was perfect.
2) The entire team was highly professional in attire and approach.
3) Easy to have confidence that Ruth was as concerned about the success of the party as the hosts were.
4) She and her team set up super quickly and were a smooth operation throughout the night.
5) Our decor people were late setting up, and I was stressed....Ruth put together a last minute appetizer to add to the menu that tasted delicious. It was a super nice gesture that helped me calm my nerves, knowing that she was so reliable!
6) Everyone raved about the food, all of which were individually unique items.
7) Her pricing was very reasonable, and she had a better selection than other caterers we had contacted.
8) She took care of clean-up and alcohol afterwards, leaving us free to enjoy the rest of the night.


So in short, if you want a stress-free, delicious, and feel-good experience, go with Ruth and Teatime. You won't be disappointed!

Holly and Tom, it was one of our favorite events that we have ever catered. North Hall at Eastern Market in the Capitol Hill area of DC is such a fun idea for a venue. The two of you were such a delight to work with. And that new appetizer I created for your party is now a keeper!!

What can I say, Ruth MacBean and her staff at Teatime Delicacies were Awesome! if you are looking for a friendly, professional, and calm manner person to caterer your event, look no further. Ruth was so helpful in guiding me through my daughter’s wedding reception plans that it was actually a lot of fun to plan and stress free. We were delighted with the food and both the Wedding cake and the grooms cake. I can’t say enough about Teatime, I would use her again and recommend her and her team with no hesitation. Thanks again Ruth… :)

Perfect! Everything on the menu was remarkable, the highlights being the chicken satay, roast beef with cabernet sauce, and mini crab cakes. The cake Ruth made for us was a chocolate fudge raspberry cake which dropped the jaws of all our guests. It was like nothing we'd ever had before. I would hire Teatime again just for the cake.
The Teatime Catering team was highly helpful and courteous. Many of our guests came up after the wedding and commented on how well they were attending to everyone. As we were setting up our wedding venue, Ruth's staff were creative in in their suggestions of how to arrange the furniture to better serve our needs.
We had a great experience with Ruth and Teatime Catering. I have already started to pass along Teatime's business card to friends planning weddings in the near future. Make the smart choice and hire Teatime catering for your wedding!

Ruth and her exceptional staff make planning the reception effortless. Ruth offered suggestions to help keep costs down and offered her experience to help in making decisions. Menu planning was easy with Ruth, and it turned out delicious!! Everyone at the reception commented on the fabulous food!! Her staff went above and beyond to make sure everyone was satisfied. They are so well organized, they anticipated our every need. Ruth supplied the wedding cake, which was super! It was moist and the icing was not the sickening sweet icing, but just a nice complement to the cake. I can't say enough about Teatime Delicacies, Inc. I would recommend them in a heart beat!

Ruth was wonderful to work with. She has been in the catering business for many years and you can tell she loves what she does. She provided honest insight throughout our planning that was very helpful. We had a heavy appetizer menu for our evening wedding at a small historic venue that did not allow much room for large tables and a sit- down meal. Everything was beautiful and so delicious! The cake was just perfect- it had white chocolate curls which I love and the flowers matched my bouquet perfectly. :) I love that Ruth offers a cake included in her services and I didn't have to source another vendor for it. Highly recommend Teatime Delicacies for anyone who wants to relax in good hands!

Ruth and her team were beyond wonderful up to and on the day of our wedding. Good price and an absolute pleasure working with them. They gave us great tips (not upsells) and provided insight on our venue setup. Two weeks later, and our guests still are mentioning how nice the staff was. We feel like we made the right choice.
