Outstanding!!! Ruth was professional and quite helpful in making suggestions for our afternoon wedding and reception. She had the perfect tea menu. The cake was a work of art and absolutely delicious. We wanted a masculine cake being a male-male couple. It was 2 layers of red velvet with cream cheese center, one layer of vanilla and raspberry center, all topped with chocolate ganache frosting, large chocolate shavings, and fall flowers…to die for. The tables were tastefully decorated in a fall theme as requested. Many of our guests have complemented the quality of the food and the cake. We highly recommend Teatime Delicacies for your event!

Ruth and her team did a fantastic job catering our wedding at Top of the Town! We had fun working with Ruth leading up to our big day. We met with her in person a few times in the months prior, to go over any details we had and she was very quick to answer emails as well. As far as the menu - Ruth created a passed appetizer for us, to honor one of my (new!) husband's favorite meals: chicken & waffles! It was such a cute presentation AND delicious. As a matter of fact, ALL the food tasted great on such a beautiful buffet. Many friends warned us after their own weddings that we'd end up being so busy we wouldn't get a chance to taste our own food. But not with Ruth's staff! They ALL sought us out when we walked in to make sure we and our bridal party got to have as many appetizers as we wanted. The bartenders did a fantastic job as well, making great drinks and keeping up with our signature cocktail (a recipe I asked Ruth's staff to make, and they did very well). To top it all off, Ruth gave us options to keep us in the budget we requested. I cannot sing Teatime Delicacies's praises enough. Everything from the planning, set-up, decor, food, drinks and clean-up were executed perfectly. We were so happy to have them to cater our special day!

Ruth and her team were absolutely excellent at our wedding at Old Town Hall. My husband (weird) and I set a very strict budget for our wedding, so after doing extensive research online we ended up meeting with the only two caterers that were able to stay within our budget and still provide all the services we required. We were looking for a vendor who could provide a buffet style reception with all the necessary linens, tabling settings, etc. as well as bartenders and servers since we were supplying our on alcohol (huge cost saver!). A friend of mine was using TeaTime for her wedding two months prior and she knew they offered reasonably priced catering services for the northern VA area, so she suggested we check them out. I mean, some of these places are outrageous!

From start to finish, the entire process of setting up a meeting with Ruth and negotiation a menu went very smoothly. My husband made several comments about how he liked her better than the other lady we met (and she was cheaper!), and she was always very responsive to emails. You can tell she really enjoys her job.

Both weddings (I was at both) went swimmingly and the food was much better than one would expect for the price. Ruth really takes a lot of time to make sure every detail is perfect and her staff is extremely friendly and thoughtful. My guests all had a lot of great things to say about the staff, actually. My nephew ended up tipping them all extra (they deserved it!). All-in-all, TeaTime exceeded our expectations. I would definitely recommend them to friends.

We used Teatime Delicacies for our wedding. My husband and I were on a limited budget and searching around for caterers we found that a lot of companies were way over our price range. Luckily we found Teatime Delicacies. Ruth is friendly and very responsive to our questions, she also gave us very good advice on how to cut cost. Her staff were very professional and helpful from beginning to end. The food was great and the cake was AMAZING! I cannot wait for my first year anniversary so I can eat the cake we have in our freezer! We are so glad we chose Teatime Delicacies for our wedding day, it was such a great day.

Ruth and her team were so fabulous to work with in all stages of the process and on wedding day! We very much appreciated being able to coordinate the catering, cake, linens and dishes all with Teatime Delicacies rather than with several different vendors. The cake was so beautiful and delicious. Ruth was very helpful in ensuring that the cake matched the colors and flowers of the rest of the reception. She was so easy to contact and very quick to respond as our wedding plans developed. We were thankful for their flexibility with our appetizer hour and with the layout of our reception's kitchen areas. The wedding party was well taken care of with drinks and appetizers while we took photos after the ceremony. We would absolutely recommend Teatime Delicacies after experiencing their professional and very personalized service on our wedding day! Ruth and her team ensured that we had a special and meaningful reception at a great value!

I just wanted to add that Ruth and her team were the most helpful and accommodating you could have. They offered us a free cake that I still enjoy bit by bit to this day, and Im really thankful for the care package they made us, because I didnt actually eat anything at the wedding. It was a blur.
So I loved that being back at the hotel I had a plate of everything i paid for and wasnt able to enjoy. haha

From our first meeting with Ruth to the main event, we felt confident that everything would be wonderful - and it was! Our guests raved about the buffet, the cake (SO DELICIOUS!), and most of all, Teatime's staff. Ruth has a lovely team working for her!

A last minute street concert near our venue resulted in fairly significant logistical challenges, particularly with regard to parking. Ruth assured us she would roll with the flow and that her staff would arrive timely - she really put our minds at ease.

Ruth is a pro with loads of experience. If you are a bride who wants the best and doesn't want to get into the weeds of planning every last detail, choose Teatime because Ruth can deliver a top notch event without much input. Her prices truly cannot be beat particularly given the quality of her food, cakes, and staff.

Ruth and Teatime Delicacies made us feel so very special and contributed in a big way to the best day of our lives. We recommend them without reservation or hesitation - Teatime Delicacies is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

When we first reached out to Ruth (Owner) to inquire about a price quote we expressed that we had a limited budget, and needed recommendations on ways to keep our catering prices low for a wedding size of around 70 people. Ruth was extremely helpful in ideas to make our wedding reception an affordable one. We ended up doing a buffet dinner, picked dinner items that kept food costs to $25 per person, used plastic vs. glass cups for the bar, bought colorful ribbon to tie around napkins vs. renting expensive colored tablecloths, only provided beer & wine, and of course the bonus of having a FREE wedding cake.

Ruth is really the key to this company being such a success. We ended up meeting with Ruth on three occasions which all took place in her home. I think I may have emailed Ruth every-other week with additional questions or random advice on various details for the wedding. Each time she would normally get back to me within a couple hours! She even put us in contact with a local Cake Shop Owner who made us custom chocolate flowers which were incorporated into Ruth's BEAUTIFUL & delicious cake.

As for the day of the Wedding Reception everything went off without a hitch. Ruth knows how to maintain an awesome staff; even though she wasn’t there everything ran smoothly. Just as she promised she had her Manager come and find the Bridal Party as soon as we got in the door with a tray of tasty Hors d’oeuvres just for us! Although my husband and I tried our best to make ourselves eat dinner at the reception, we failed to get to our plates before the meat had been out too long. But no reason for disappointment because Ruth’s staff thought ahead and had some leftovers stored in the fridge that they packed up for us.

If you’re currently researching caterers you need to get in contact with Ruth. This company has amazing service with a GREAT PRICE for the DC area. All of our guests, and my husband and I highly recommend Teatime Delicacies for your wedding!

Ruth was wonderful from start to finish. She was able to make a great menu even with our tight budget and dietary restrictions. In the months leading up to the wedding, she answered all our questions and emails. Her previous experience with out venue gave us valuable information about limitations/options it offered. And on the wedding day, she and her staff were amazing! They decorated our cake just how we had imagined it, the food was absolutely delicious, and Ruth made sure my husband and I had a chance to eat a full meal. We received many compliments on the service as well as the food. I am so glad we found her!

Hands down THE BEST caterer in Northern Virginia!! Ruth and her team catered my sister's wedding 2 years ago and they were so amazing (food, baked goods, service) that all of her guests were talking about them. Needless to say, when I got engaged Ruth was the first person I called to reserve her for my big day! She is AWESOME! She will work with you, and has the best ideas for your wedding theme. She is patient, professional and loves what she does! Her staff is also incredible. Very friendly, works hard and professional. My guests loved the food and service! Not to mention the GORGEOUS wedding cake Ruth made. Everything was just perfect and smooth thanks to Teatime.
