Colette’s Catering & Events is a boutique catering company located in Fullerton, CA. Our company was founded by its namesake, Colette Coffman over 20 years ago. What began as a small family company has continued to grow, and the result is a larger but still intimate family business. You can still find Colette in the kitchen crafting her father’s recipes side by side with our chefs today.

The result of all this; a culinary experience that is a delight for all the senses and one that will leave you and your guests with a heartwarming memory.

Wow! Wow wow wow wow wow. There are not enough words in the English dictionary to describe how wonderful the staff is at Colette's. The owner, Mr. Greenleaf is a profoundly kind and calming person. Because of Colette's, I went into my wedding day with 100% confidence that I would have a seamless wedding. Not only did they deliver, they went above and beyond to check on me and my husband throughout the evening to ensure we were cared for and happy. I not only recommend Colette's, I look forward to the next opportunity to work with them in the future. The most bittersweet moment about our wedding was knowing that we wouldn't get to work with these fine people in the next months to come. Thank you Colette's and the Muckenthaler for the most dream-like and romantic wedding I have ever seen!

We met with Colette's at least 10 months before our daughter's wedding on October 12, 2013. We sampled the food, made our choices, and found everything presented and sampled extremely delicious. We wanted a sit down dinner for 156 guests at an outdoor venue. My (MOB) pet peeve is lukewarm or cold food. I made sure Colette's knew my concerns. And, I can happily and confidently say that Colette's served our filet mignon dinner, to 150 plus guests on a cool October evening, hot! Not only was the food hot, but it was excellent! We had several guests tell us that they were blown away by the fact their meals were hot and delicious. Colette's delivered what they promised! The staff was excellent also. They were professional and friendly. We could not have asked for a better experience with a catering company. If and when I ever need to have an event catered again, I will definitely use Colette's Catering.

Our wedding was at the Muckenthaler Mansion in Fullerton, CA and Colette's Catering is the exclusive caterer for that venue. We worked with Duane who was fantastic! For our food tasting we were essentially served an entire meal! Duane and the chef brought us each serving but not in little tiny bites, full servings of them so we could really try them and see what we liked. I'm happy to report that the food at the wedding was as good as the food we tried at our tasting. I've heard stories from other brides who felt the food they had at their tasting was way better than what was actually served at their wedding. Not the case for us! I had so many people say it was the best wedding food they'd ever had! I agree!! Also, the cake was fantastic! We had a spice cake with cream frosting and so many people came up to us and said it was the best wedding cake they'd had! Simply delicious! Also, I wanted to surprise my groom with a fun groom's cake and they were wonderful to work with to create a life-size Cincinnati Reds baseball cap. My husband was so surprised and LOVED the cake! It looked just like a baseball cap and all our Ohio guests were impressed with the details Colette put into the cake! It was really cute AND delicious (red velvet cake inside). I highly recommend Colette's Catering--they were a dream team to work with!

I asked Doreen to make my son's 1st birthday cake in November 2012, and I loved it so much that I asked her to make my daughter's 3rd birthday cake a few months later. Both cakes were fabulous, and tasted equally as delicious! We had The Very Hungry Caterpillar theme for my son's birthday, and Doreen offered fun and impressive cake designs that were imaginative and playful. My daughter's cake was a Belle princess cake (in the shape of a princess) that turned out incredible!

Doreen is easy work with, pleasant, and very flexible.

Her cakes are well-executed and simply beautiful.

I strongly recommend Doreen at Colette's Events for any/all your special cake needs!

Kristen and the entire team from the Muck and Colette’s were hands down the best team I have ever worked with. I don’t have anything to compare it too, but I have seen the horror stories. They took care of everything, from helping my cut cost to save the budget, to last second changes to the tables and needing to change sizes to vary from 8tops to 12tops, I can’t say enough wonderful things about Colette’s, the food is to die for, even if you go on the lower end menu. Everyone say the cake was amazing too, sadly I did not get any. But that’s my own fault, (just got to taste the frosting)

Every bride wants to feel amazing on her day...... Our wedding day was truly magical and I have Kristen to thank for this. We are looking thru pictures now and I am so happy, there is nothing I would have changed.

My husband and I were married at the Muckenthaler Mansion back in March and by default was teamed up with Colette's since they cover all events at the Mansion. To say I had a great experience would be a mass understatement. Everyone I spoke with/encountered at Colette's was so helpful and kind, even Ms. Colette herself who we had the pleasure of meeting at one of our tastings. Duane Greenleaf and Rick Martin helped my husband and I plan out the details; everything from color scheme to location areas within the mansion and of course the fabulous food! Both Duane and Rick are so talented and experts at their job that as the Bride, I was able to sit back and relax and know that no matter what, it was going to be an amazing wedding, which it was. Originally, we were supposed to have the ceremony at home; however, it poured that day so Rick, who was our wedding coordinator worked with his staff and my vendors to create an elegant ceremony inside. It was so beautiful and I know for the fact none of the guests even knew that the ceremony was supposed to be outside. With regards to the food, expect to be wowed because most likely, you haven't tasted food this scrumptious. Guests kept coming up to me at the wedding saying how delicious the food was and the cake, well it beat out any cake I've tasted before. In a nutshell, my husband and I were able to have a 5 star wedding without the 5 star costs. Colette's and the Muckenthaler provide hard-to-beat costs for their top-of-the-line service and products. The cherry on top was how amazing and fun Duane, Rick and all of the staff at Colette's and the Muckenthaler Mansion. Without all of them, there is no way my dream wedding could have happened. I will FOREVER be grateful for all of them because the most important day of my life was so perfect and better than I could have ever imagined.

Everything about Colette's was simply amazing! The service I recieved from Duane from day one was personalized and informative, I felt from the start that he truely cared about my wedding, I was not just another sale to him. Its now almost 3 weeks after the wedding and I am still hearing from guests how great the food was! It far exceeded my expectations.
Colette's also provided the day of coordinator. I didn't have to worry about any of the details the day of the wedding, Rick took care of everything. Nothing was overlooked!

Colette's Catering provided the best wedding cake I have ever tasted... and I'm not just saying that because it was mine! Everyone I was in contact with was professional and so nice... and Colette designed our cake herself when we came in for consultation! The cake turned out exactly as promised - I would definitely recommend Colette's. The quality is definitely worth what you pay for!

We are repeat clients of Collette's. She catered my grandfather's wedding and I just had to have her for ours. Collette's Catering was hands down the best. Collette not only planned our menu and made our cake, she went above and beyond and helped with other aspects of the wedding that had nothing to do with the food. We are so grateful that she was there to help us through the planning process. Our food was AMAZING!! The appetizers were a hit with everyone. The plated dinner was fantastic and the desserts were incredible! We told Collette that we didn't care much about what our cake was, yet she still managed to make something that was right in line with what we were thinking. We wanted all different desserts and she came up with great ideas. We had a ton of different mini desserts and she even came up with the idea of a Hot Fudge Sundae Bar which was a total hit.

Collette's staff was the best we have ever seen at any wedding. They were practically invisible when they were serving us, yet whenever we wanted something they were right there to help us and bring us anything we wanted. The bartenders were fantastic and so efficient in serving the ton of people we had. All of her staff were so polite and professional. We would recommend Collette's for everyone we know because nobody tops her food and service.

Colette's Catering is an absolutely amazing vendor. They provided me with catering for appetizers, dinner, and cake. The food was wonderful at the wedding. We had tri-tip with provolone potatoes and asian long beans. It was a great meal and my guests seemed to really enjoy it also since all of their plates were pretty much cleared off. Such great flavor and everything was so fresh. No complaints on the food at all. Colette's also did our wedding cake. One word... DELICIOUS. The cake goddess at Colette's made such a beautiful and delicious cake. It was so moist and flavorful. We had almond cake with raspberry preserves on the bottom tiers and lemon cake with raspberry custard on the top tiers with white chocolate cream cheese frosting that was so heavenly. I would have to give Colette's Catering a 10 out of 10 for all of the services that they provided me for my wedding. All of their staff is so helpful and so flexible, not to mention so wonderful to work with. Thank you so much for making our wedding day so delicious and special!

Colette's was very flexible with me and what I wanted to serve. They were very professional and did an amazing job...people loved the food, which was extremely important to me and my husband, and it tasted like it did when we did our individual tasting, so nothing changed even though they made if for over a 100 people.

We chose Colette's because they are the exclusive caterer for our reception site, the Muckenthaler Mansion and Cultural Center. Also, growing up in Brea/Fullerton, I knew Colette's was a great caterer from past events. They also did our wedding cake which was delicious and turned out just the way we wanted it. The cake was included in the package, so that was easy. One of our groomsmen was Vegan and they made a delicious plate up just for him. It was great because he was able to have a whole meal and not just scavange for fruit and veggies. All our guests really enjoyed the food and the service was great. My only complaint is that they took a long time to bring out the slices of cake once we had cut the cake. We didn't notice as we were having a great time dancing, but I heard later that some people never got to taste the cake. I highly recommend Colette's.

We got our wedding catering through Colette's and our experience was very good overall. The food itself was delicious and we had no complaints about the service. Our only minor issue was that we weren't aware that, since we were at a private venue, we would be responsible for renting equipment that it seems like any catering company should already own! So we ended up having to spend a bit more than we first anticipated.

We held our wedding at the beach front property, Pacific Edge Villa in Laguna Beach. Collettes Catering did an AMAZING JOB to give us our dream wedding on August 10, 2010! The food and cake was excellent, and what really impressed us was that our coordinators Sarah Katzka and Duane Greenleaf went out of their way to ensure everything ran smoothly during our event. When my dad (who has a huge sun allergy) forgot his hat at home, Duane ran out and got him a cool stylish hat that even matched his suit! He looked great when he walked me down the isle. ;) Sarah even helped my mom and sister to bustle my dress when they couldn't figure it out. Whatever issue arose, they deal with it accordingly and made sure that we enjoyed our day! The entire staff was very friendly and service minded, we could see our guests enjoying themselves and so were we! We are very happy that they were our caterers for our wedding and will definitely recommend them to everyone!!!

The food was terrific. There was more than enough for the entire reception. The staff was very professional. They melted into walls, or managed to disappear anytime any guest was walking by. They were the invisible people while getting all there work done and they did it well. Kudos to all of Collette's staff (and her).

The cake was absolutely perfect. The bride has been a wedding cake baker for decades. Her cakes were always considered the best. Her comment about the presentation and the flavor was "Wow!" All the guests, and we agreed that the cake was absolutely the best. I can't wait for next year. I hope the cake survives the freezer! Our thanks to a wonderful and professional vendor!

I purchased my wedding cake from this vendor and LET ME JUST SAY, IT WAS A HIT! AMAZING!!!!!!! The cake was way out of my budget, though I could not find another bakery that tasted the way Colette's Cake taste. I've used them before for other events and have always thought expensive so it's for VERY special occasions that I use them. They got my idea down to a T! I said I want this kind of cake and they NAILED IT! And the TASTE, I can go on and on about how soft, moist, flavorful their cakes are. Design was amazing. Everyone now (almost 1 yr later) still says my cake was awesome, the look, the taste and I have people asking all the time where I purchased it. I would definitely use Colette's again, it's just unfortunate how pricey they can be for even something small. But, I guess you get what you pay for @ a high price, and well worth it. I rated value @ 4.5 only because their extremely high pricing, other than that, like I said AMAZING! If you can afford an EXPENSIVE cake, call Colette's. I'm telling you though, well worth the money spent.

The Muckenthaler has that charm that most wedding venues are missing nowadays. We knew we didn't want to do the standard country-club wedding, and we wanted to have both the ceremony and reception at the same venue. The Muck provided us with that, along with a beautiful setting for our big day. The grounds make for a gorgeous wedding. We hosted the ceremony in their palm tree garden, dinner inside the art gallery, and dancing and cocktails outside on their patio. It was perfect for us. We got so many compliments from people about how beautiful everything was. And on top of that, they work exclusively with Colette's Catering, so they really have the process down. We trusted that everything would work out with them, and it was fabulous.

Colette's food was absolutely delicious! We got so many compliments on our dinner...My only complaint there was that we'd actually ordered the beef with marsala sauce...and for some reason, it never arrived? It didn't matter much--no one noticed but the hubby and I.

And the CAKE?! Their cake is AMAZING. Theresa--who is Colette's "Cake Goddess", totally understood exactly what we wanted for our cake, and she nailed it. We had song lyrics about love written all around our cake. She made it look so beautiful and professional--we were in LOVE with it. And then...we ate it! Which was equally awesome. The cake was so moise and perfect. We loved it--I will order cakes there in the future, for SURE!!

Working with Duane Greenleaf at Colette's Catering was AWESOME!! He made the whole process leading up to the wedding pretty stress free and I knew that the event would be in good hands. Only a few things that I would make note of, just because they weren't exactly the way I wanted...

(1) The middle tier on the cake was supposed to be white cake with chocolate mousse, and it ended up red velvet (which I am not a fan of). Not a big deal because we weren't able to cut/serve the middle tier anyway, but a little annoyed that it was not what I had ordered. Other than that, the cake was perfect! LOOKED AWESOME and the chocolate tasted amazing! And.. my mom took home the red velvet and said it was delicious.. so I guess not a big deal.

(2) I had made it clear that I wanted a king table set-up in the middle of the reception area for the bridal party and NOT a sweetheart table... but when we arrived there was a sweetheart table and no king table. My sister/maid-of-honor and some other relatives went to make sure that it was set up for the wedding, but I was a little annoyed that she had to manage that. Especially because I had mentioned several times that I wanted the king table and sent back a schematic of how it was to be set up. But again, once it was done, the event went by swimmingly.. and I didn't even know she had to do that until the end of the night.

Overall, great service from Colette's. And the wait staff the night of the event was absolutely perfect.

Collette's team provided wonderful food and catering services for our wedding. Everyone raved about the food - especially the mashed potatoes :)

The cake was tasty and looked beautiful - the only criticism is that i wanted a few fondant daisies on the edges and they ended up being hard frosting unrealistic - 1 dimensional flowers.

The size, taste (most important), and shape of the cake was lovely. Loved the vanilla cake w/apricot filling.
Staff was EXCELLENT!

We had chicken, mixed vegetables, a salad, and garlic bread. Everybody said they really enjoyed the food. They were so professional and everything looked so beautiful!!!! It was also nice to have someone provide all of the tables, chairs, and china so we didn't have to worry about that.

My husband and I got married at Muckenthaler Mansion. From the minute we drove up and saw the mansion, we loved it! Beautiful place, inside and out. Guests enjoyed the art work inside. We had our ceremony in the Italian Garden, followed by cocktail hour on the patio, then a buffet dinner inside the gallery. Could not be happier with this location. Provided our ceremony chairs, linens, tables, flatware. Colette's has amazing food, all of our guests raved about dinner. Their presentation of dinner was elegant and not what I've seen in the past for buffets at weddings. Our cake was the most delicious cake I have ever tasted and the design they did was gorgeous. Our cake looked just like fondant but was just icing- helped to cut down on costs. Colette's staff is extremely friendly but can sometimes be disorganized. Keep all your notes, stay on top of things, get everything in writing!! Overall, was happy with their service, food presentation, food quality, and friendliness.

My wedding was held at the Muck this year (2010) First of all the food that Collete's provided was SUPERB! everyone loved the food-super tasty!! My brother - who's critical of EVERYTHING even loved the food!! The cake was AWESOME and teresa the cake goddess did and amazing amazing job!!!! The Service personnel that collette's hired was EXCELLENT!! VERY professional VERY attentive to the guests...all the guests commented that they felt very served!!! no lacking in water service, hors de vors service, and food service!!! The staff even took the time to bring me hors de vors while i was roaming about the grounds with my groom and the photographer taking pictures!!! I TOTALLY wasn't expecting that!!!

With that said the sales rep handling my particular event (the "coordinator") was only so-so. However, my bridesmaids and I concluded that she must have been new as she seemed very green and slightly inexperienced. She was a very sweet and nice girl!! Super nice! But something seemed a little lacking....although im not quite sure what...perhaps I was expecting too much?

But overall....Collette's is definately worth it!!

I was pleased with the catering services. The food and prep work was amazing, although it did seem a bit pricey in my opinion. I would work with them again as long as I better control my food budget.

Colette's Catering & Events responded with the following comments:

Hello Mary, can I ask who you worked with for your wedding? I don't see you in our calendar for 7-31-11, so I want to be sure you worked with Colette's? or perhaps it was another company?

We had issues with our coordinator prior to our reception day. He did not respond in a timely manner and failed to take notes about specific details so we felt like we were repeating ourselves for each meeting. Otherwise, the day-of staff was great. They were very helpful and accommodating.

Biggest Mistake we ever made to order a cake from Colette's Cakes. We had historically had a wonderful experience with ordering birthday cakes from this place, however they let us down on our wedding day. I showed them a photo of a cake with beautiful cascading petals and they promised they could deliver. On our wedding day, the cake looked nothing like the photo and our florist had to add extra flowers to make up for the bare look our cake had. It was the worst thing we had happen, and no one really cared (except for us of course)...but when you are paying for something so expensive, and the vendor promises to deliver, then they should be able to deliver. I also contacted Colette at a later date via email and she wrote back via email that she believed the cake turned out great...This was untrue because they have a photo of the before and after and know it was an absolute fabrication to say the least. We used to spend lots of money at colettes on birthday cakes, and special occasion cakes...after the wedding outcome - NEVER again. If colette had at least been willing to address our concern we would have understood that mistakes happen, but as a result of the poor service, we do not recommend them. Be careful and make sure you will get exactly what you ask for if you use them.

Colette's catering ruined my daughter's wedding. The food was tasteless, refrigerator cold, and the service was painfully slow. STAY FAR AWAY. Do not use this vendor for something so important as a wedding. Sadly, I will have this memory for the rest of my life.
