We had the absolute pleasure of working with Nicole from Emelle's Catering over the last year while we planned our wedding at the Vancouver Rowing Club. Emelle's is the venue's preferred caterer so we didn't have a choice, but as soon as I read all these Google reviews I knew I was in good hands. And did they EVER live up to the expectations!!! Nicole was by far the most responsive and helpful wedding vendor we worked with. Her communication was honestly impeccable, and helped to reduce a lot of stress that comes with planning a wedding. She happily answered the many questions we had, made menu adjustments and was very accommodating to our special requests. Several months before the wedding she hosted us for a full tasting which was so enjoyable to try all the food (because on our wedding day I barely had time to eat)! We've had great feedback about the food. We wanted to stay away from the usual wedding buffet roast beef, so we opted for barbecued steak which I know is a challenge for 100+ people but they absolutely nailed! It was so good! Also, the Butternut Squash Mac n' Cheese took the winner for best supporting role :) Soooo good! As you can see, Emelle's let's you make the menu your own and happily works hard to pull it off without a hitch. You're not just another customer with Emelle's. Even the staff on the day went out of their way to make sure we were treated special, pulling out my chair for me and setting aside a plate of hors d'oeuvres for us because we were off taking pictures - so sweet! If you are looking at having Emelle's provide catering for your wedding/event, stop reading and email them - you won't regret it! Thanks Nicole & team!! :) More...

Where to even begin about saying how AMAZING Emelle’s is. As an event professional, we have worked with Emelle’s on countless events and have seen time and time again how they deliver exceptional food, engaging service and incredible experience EVERY TIME. Most recently we attended Bard on the Beach and had a fabulous catered dinner by Emelle’s included. 800 people served a delicious salmon buffet and seamlessly? Woah! It’s an art & science, both of which Emelle’s has mastered.A few weeks ago we hosted my Mom’s 70th Birthday, which was a surprise Afternoon High Tea. Pulling off a surprise and showing up with my Mom to a venue fully braced and ready for a champagne toast? No sweat! The Earl Grey cake was mouthwatering and a huge hit too.I’m a raving fan of Emelle’s and will say WHATEVER the event is, small or big, from a simple corporate lunch to an audacious, vibrant theme party… they’re the one we choose!

I would give it 3.5 stars but I can’t. Good food I love’s Darren blue plate specials most interesting food mixes. And they have some/few great regulars on the menu. But there is no food information telling you if there may be something your allergic to it’s in it. I ordered a Salad which ended up having ginger in it and I had to go to the hospital because of my reaction to it. More...

Love this place for lunch! Staff are all very friendly and the food is amazing! I love the way there is a new menu everyday, on top of the regular standard menu!
Good coffee. They had some baked goods as well. Brownie was good.
Great food at reasonable prices
Emelle's catered our wedding this summer and were so wonderful to work with. We felt like we were in good hands right from the beginning. They were very accommodating and everything on the day went very smoothly. They anticipated our needs without us even asking and made sure that we were fed throughout the day. Highly recommend as the service was fantastic. More...
Nicole of Emelle's is like a Swiss Army knife. Everytime something goes wrong in an event, she pulls something up her sleeve to fix it. Talk about multitasking.She has more energy than 5 kindergarten kids in school recess. I took desserts home after her last event and found myself gulping her Nanaimo bars for breakfast: too good to resist. From fancy weddings to a family lunch in the park, you can trust Emelles to serve you as she says, "with ease and grace" and I would add: with deliciousness!! More...
Food is very well priced and there is a little table service. Food is also very well done, they seem to be doing lunch as a side thing to catering being their primary business.Fries and chicken are good and available on Fridays as a special. More...
We are still getting compliments about the mouth-watering food served at our wedding. Not only was the food tasty, but most of it was locally-sourced! Each dish was cooked to perfection and had beautiful presentation. Service was exceptional with very attentive servers, quick and friendly bar-tenders and amazing cooks. We had a number of dietary restrictions at our wedding and Emelles was able to tailor the food accordingly. We even had a 3-tier Angel Food cake that looked stunning and tasted great! Thank you Emelles for making our big day perfect! More...
Emelle’s recently catered our wedding and boy did they hit a home run! The service was fantastic as they ensured all our guests had more than enough to eat. We go some many compliments from our guests that was some of the best wedding food they ever had! Also leading up to the event, Emelle’s was great checking in with us and going over small details, in that regard communication was excellent (thank-you Nicole & Neil!). We would definitely recommend Emelle’s to our family and friends! More...
Incredible food, cake, and service for weddingWe were very lucky to have Emelle’s Catering for our wedding.Nicole was extremely professional, flexible, very responsive and on top of everything. She basically made all the planning for our wedding day. Nicole took care of creating the menu, the wedding cake, seating plan, and all the furniture rental. Nicole helped us to have a perfect menu that reflected both our culture.The food was amazing and all our guests enjoyed it. The service was very good too. We couldn't be happier on our big day. We highly recommend Emelle's catering and Nicole. She is fantastic, if you are working with her you don't need to be worried about anything. More...
Amazing staff and food. I highly recommend!!!
Great spot to get lunch on a regular basis. Very fast service. $10 lunch specials offer quality over quantity. Small outdoor patio across from a park for when the weather is nice.
Consistent and fast service, coupled with friendly staff and decent menu items really make this place a go to when you're in a rush or need something quick and affordable. Nothing here stands out other than the good service, so as long as your expectations match the price tag, you'll be fine! More...
Great tasting food. Good daily specials. Excellent customer service. One of the best deserts you can find around. Special infused water makes you feel fresh like nothing else.
The staff here are extremely friendly. The menu is different every day, and the specials are always yummy, and a great deal. Lunch specials run between $6 for a cold sandwich to $10 for a deluxe quesadilla and their much healthier than a quick meal elsewhere. The only downside is they're not open 24/7! More...
Really delicious food here. My favorite is the breakfast omlette. Stop by to grab lunch to go or dine in and enjoy your meal on their cozy dining area.
Amazing, well priced caterer. They also have a CAFÉ open for breakfast and lunch Monday- Friday. Famous for its blue plate special, make sure to try something different from the daily specials board!
My favourite cafe in the neighbourhood! Food is always consistently good and the staff is super friendly. Glad I discovered this spot - I eat here on a weekly (if not more) basis.
Great breakfast. Love the Thursday Egger special
