Casual Gourmet was so great to work with! Olive and her team don't skip a beat and have every detail covered. Any questions I asked would get answered... Olive is a fountain of knowledge, especially since the venue (Bourne Farm) had so many moving parts. I knew I could count on her and her team! To top it all off, the food was absolutely incredible - fresh, local, delicious and beautiful! People are still talking about how good everything was. More...

The Casual Gourmet was affiliated with our reception venue, so that was how we determined where to go for our wedding cake. We were extremely pleased starting with our cake tasting. The woman we worked with understood our style and was able to help us design the perfect wedding cake. When we arrived at our reception and saw our cake, it was perfect! Even better than the look of the cake was how it tasted! Our wedding cake was DELICIOUS and everyone raved about it! Thank you Casual Gourmet! More...

For a tiny little shop wedged into a corner of Cape Cod Hospital, they serve very good coffee with some nice choices of pastry, Danish and breakfast sandwiches.

The food tasting my fiancé and I did today was great! We felt “catered to” no pun intended. We were offered a variety of delicious options to try and were able to schedule out how our reception will go that night. We can’t wait for big day and are happy we have the Casual Gourmet helping us! More...

Highly recommend the Casual Gourmet! They were so easy to work with and truly are so much more than just a catering company. They really act as your coordinator and were such a pleasure to work with. If you are looking to have a Cape wedding, and can use your own caterer, the casual gourmet is a must! More...

Casual Gourmet catered our wedding from start to finish and we could not have been more pleased with the experience! Having a bigger wedding than planned, we were glad to have such an experienced team helping us along the way. The bride was constantly at ease due to the day-of-coordinator being easy going and relaxed throughout the day, reassuring that everything went off without a hitch. All the pre-planning meetings made the day go smoothly and we are glad we used the Casual Gourmet! More...

The Casual Gourmet is a coffee shop in the lobby of the Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis. The place is very small but they do a very good job with the space they have.The coffee is always hot and fresh, they have a nice variety of pastries and sandwiches. The people who work here are very friendly and organized. It's a great place for a quick bite and a good cup of coffee. More...

Olive Chase (and the entire Casual Gourmet team) is a pleasure to work with. She is super knowledgeable about the wedding industry in general and even more knowledgeable about the catering aspect. Olive worked to give us exactly what we wanted, even accommodating some of our more complicated requests. I especially love how Olive and her team source as much of the food locally from Cape Cod as possible - it really makes the entire experience feel that much more unique and authentic. The food was delicious (from appetizers to wedding cake) and the service unmatched. Our guests are still talking about how perfectly the event was executed by Olive and her team. I cannot thank The Casual Gourmet enough for making my wedding one of the best days of my life. If you're looking for delicious, locally sourced food with the best service on Cape Cod you cannot beat The Casual Gourmet! And P.S. Olive is great about providing recommendation to help minimize costs (i.e. we brought in all of our own liquor). More...

I had the pleasure of working with Mary and her team at Casual Gourmet for my September 8th wedding. From our first meeting to our big day everything was professional, buttoned up, and phenomenal. The food was exquisite, the ambiance was magical and she truly made our special day come to life. The Casual Gourmet staff is professional and detailed and a dream to work with. Mary made sure to include all my personal wedding elements as I had planned them, allowing our wedding to feel authentically ours. Casual Gourmet created the exact wedding cake we had proposed through images and it tasted delicious. I cannot say enough about my fabulous experience with everyone at CG, and highly recommend them as a first choice for any event! More...

Casual Gourmet was Fantastic!! I would highly recommend them. They are professional, prompt, customer service is amazing and the food was fabulous! Our guests raved about the apps and dinner. We did stations - beef tenderloin, salmon (cooked to perfection), chowder station (was a huge hit), roasted veggies and pasta (also a big hit). Our coordinator Lisa was there from the rehearsal to the end of the wedding night and ran that reception without a hitch. (If there was one, I didn't know about it!) She did everything from running the rehearsal to putting out the lawn games and making sure the bride and groom were fed. The bartenders Brian and Brian were friendly and saw to it that everyone had what they wanted. At the end of the night, all was tucked/locked away and grounds completely cleaned up. When we arrived to clear out our personal belongings the grounds were completely cleared up. The wedding and reception were all that my daughter and her husband had wanted. Casual Gourmet you are Fabulous! More...

Casual Gourmet saved the day.  Stuck in between testings and not wanting to test the traffic gods by leaving I was headed to the Cafeteria where lo and behold I smell fresh coffee.  Baked good, sandwiches, and a couple soups of the day. Had the Quahog chowder which was nothing short of amazing.  Hot and fresh, creamy and just the perfect mix of clam and potato.  Planning on getting a quart to go!! More...

The Casual Gourmet made the most amazing Gluten Free birthday cake for my son's birthday party. It was the best tasting Gluten Free cake we've ever had! And no one could tell it was Gluten Free. It was beautifully and flawlessly decorated as well. The staff was very sweet and accommodating. Thank-You so much for putting a big smile on my son's face.

The Casual Gourmet catered our family wedding reception,rehearsal dinner and welcome party in August . The presentation was lovely, but more importantly, the food was delicious! The food at each occasion varied greatly and each type of food was perfectly prepared from the salads to the lobster to the beef. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Two favorites from the appetizers were the lamb lollipops and lobster grilled cheese sandwiches! We had sampled these delightful treats at the tasting and were not disappointed. Our thanks to Olive and her staff for making the wedding week-end guests and hosts very happy! More...

When it comes to wedding catering, Casual Gourmet is simply the best. They catered our backyard tented wedding and as a result of their work, it was not only flawless but the best night of our lives. We worked with Kelly for most of the logistics, contracting, and early planning including our tasting and she was fabulous: friendly, flexible, and responsive.

We were fortunate to also have Olive as our day-of event manager due to the unique logistics of the backyard setup. Olive knows her stuff and provided great practical advice on best practices for how to make the event go smoothly. Olive and her team handled a huge amount of the logistics including vendor coordination and rentals. Olive came to the property several times, including when vendors were setting up on site. My husband and I pay incredible attention to detail and yet Casual Gourmet, and Olive in particular, went far above and beyond our expectations. There were one or two times in the planning process where Casual Gourmet was a bit rigid but this is primarily because they have been doing this for years and they tend to know what will work best. That being said, they did graciously accommodate several special requests (e.g. boxing up extra cake for guests to take home, special arrangements for food allergies, etc.)

On the day of the event, the servers, bartenders, and staff were incredibly hard working and friendly. There was never a line at the bar and the food was truly phenomenal - many guests commented the best they had ever had at a wedding. In addition, there were bountiful appetizers and the presentation was flawless. Finally, Casual Gourmet did a special surprise groom's cake that was incredible - and received dozens of compliments from guests for its design (and the three cake flavors, fillings, and frostings were delicious.)

They are worth every penny and we could not recommend them more highly. They are the best in the business.

My husband and I got married at The Coonamessett Inn on August 26th. The Coony uses The Casual Gourmet for the wedding cakes with a discount. I will say that this is the best cake we have ever had, and our guests were raving about the two different flavors - Funfetti style with buttercream frosting and a lemon cake with raspberry filling.The staff here is extremely pleasant to work with. We met with the staff several weeks prior to the wedding, where they showed us pictures of their most popular cakes. We chose a beautiful white cake with edible white chocolate starfish, sugar sand at the base, and Adirondack chairs on the top with beachy picket fences. It was amazing! Thank you, Casual Gourmet!

I've been getting my cakes from here for years. They are always nicely decorated and very tasty. The staff has always been very professional and nice. Today they went above and beyond and really saved me. I picked up my son's birthday cake and brought it home where my 6 month old puppy pulled it off the kitchen table and ate part of it. It was my son's 21st birthday and I was really bummed out since he tremendously looks forward to this cake. I called casual Gourmet and they were able to get a new cake together and decorated for me within 20 minutes. Their kindness and help we're really appreciated! More...

Could not have had a better experience with Casual Gourmet. They accommodated my Vegan grandparents, provided Libby for my day of coordinator, allowed us to mix and match our favorite foods (pizza, beef, raw bar, vegetables), designed the most beautiful cake, served our signature drinks all night, and overall were incredibly professional! Olive is wonderful, and Mary was always quick to reply to emails. Excellent service you cannot go wrong. More...

The Casual Gourmet did an incredible job catering our wedding at Highfield Hall! We could not have been happier. From start to finish, they thought of every detail and were so on top of everything. The staff at The Casual Gourmet was so easy to work with and incredibly professional throughout the whole process. In particular, Mary Lyons did an amazing job! She happily answered all our questions and honored all our requests. The Casual Gourmet also provides a day-of-coordinator. Our coordinator was Kelly Field and she did a fantastic job! We didn’t have to worry about a thing on our wedding day. She took care of everything! Not only did we love our caterers, our guests could not stop raving about them either! They were so impressed with how on top of everything the staff was and loved the food! We got so many compliments about the food and service and we wholeheartedly agree. The staff was so professional and the food was absolutely amazing (and we would know because we actually had time to eat!). Kelly and her wait staff made sure we were well fed throughout the night. Also, the Casual Gourmet made our wedding cake and it was absolutely beautiful not to mention delicious! We would highly recommend The Casual Gourmet to anyone getting married on the Cape! We can’t thank them enough for making our wedding day so special! More...

Olive and her team are truly outstanding. Olive is exceptionally knowledgable about catering best practices, timing of the day as well as popular venues around the Cape - lending her expert opinion for most wedding related questions. Her team is remarkably responsive (easily accessible by email) and willing to accommodate most requests. My wedding day went off without a hitch (even in a tropical storm!) with her and her team: the bar service was insanely fast with never any lines, our buffet was the fastest anyone had ever seen they said, their menu to select from was out of this world (and the tasting with Olive was SO fun!), and the breakdown and clean-up of the tent after was phenomenal. Honestly I don't think my husband and I could be happier that we went with Casual Gourmet - cannot recommend them enough!! More...

The Casual Gourmet is the BEST of the best. I went into the wedding planning process pretty unsure of what I wanted for food/ catering experience. Olive and her team at the Casual Gourmet delivered! Mary was our personal wedding coordinator, which is part of the service provided and SO SO worth it. Mary and the team met with my husband and I for food tastings, table ware, etc. They worked with our other vendors to ensure everything ran perfectly on the day of. The food is incredible as well. They are able to accommodate most any menu desired! Our guests were raving about the food and still are. Service was seamless, food was incredible, the cake was beautiful and delicious, and the whole day went off without a hitch- all thanks to Mary, Olive and the entire CG staff! Highly recommend!!

Olive and her staff were incredible! Lisa was there to plan every step of the way and was there on the actual day of our wedding to make sure everything was perfect and it was! She was extremely easy to work with, listened to our wants and needs, was extremely responsive and attentive, made great suggestions, was super friendly and kind and contacted all of our vendors to ensure they were going to be on time, etc. Now let's get to the food! OMG, you couldn't have asked for anything more delicious! Everyone raved about the food and everyone was full and so happy! Our guests literally told us that it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding! What is so wonderful is the wedding cake is included and the cake was absolutely delicious and stunning! I also loved the fact that they handled dealing with the rental company for the rental of the tables, chairs, etc. I loved that they dealt with the liquor store and included that bill for the liquor. I loved the fact that they literally took care of pretty much everything! On top of the delicious food, their staff, including the bartenders, servers, were super friendly and worked so hard! I highly recommend hiring this caterer if you want that absolutely spectacular wedding! We feel so honored to have chosen you guys for our wedding day! You made it that much more special so thank you! More...

The management (Olive) and staff were exceptional. When you are planning a wedding there are more things you dont know than those you do. I felt as if Olive and her team took us in made sure we understood the benefits, risks, do's and dont's and cans and can'ts. The experience was truly amazing and with their help our daughter's wedding went to a level beyond excellent.
Everyone we spoke to at the wedding said it was the best that they had ever attended and without Olive and her amazing staff at Casual Gourmet I am certain it would have not been as flawless and from my perspective not as easy. If you are a parent and what that amazing day for your child you will not have time to cover every detail, nor know which level of importance any detail requires.
I can not speak anything but the highest praises about them. On a scale of 1-10, they are 15.
After having evaluated food from other caterers we saw no option even close to the variety, quality, the presentation and the taste. We were well rewarded by this decision.
The bartenders, professional, quality cocktails and excellent oversight towards those that perhaps had a tendency to empty their glasses too quickly and return for more. Thank you.
Even though we also had some traditional European wedding cakes, the one prepared by Casual Gourmet was wonderful.
I know this sounds like Im a fan, which I am. However, if you are considering any event, wedding, etc. it should be a MUST that you at least evaluate Casual Gourmet and their services, you would be doing a diservice to yourself, your loved ones or your clientele.
A final item, their cost was completely in line and I very much feel that if you take into consideration the quality and professionalism, you are getting a bargain.
I have one daughter left and sometime in the near future I will be back at Casual Gourmet, having Olive and her staff helping me to plan and execute another phenomenal wedding.
Thank you Olive. Thank you to the amazing staff.

We had a stellar experience with Casual Gourmet who catered our daughters wedding for 160 people in mid June in our back yard.
Everything about the experience was a pleasure, from the initial tempting menu and price offerings , the better than any restaurant tasting meal in January, to the truly amazing hors d'oevres that every guest praised and the delicious dinners, delivered quickly, and warm and that were consumed with gusto.
The serving staff was attractive, well trained and so pleasant to deal with.
Olive herself was more than helpful. A true Queen of organization and fine dining.
The cleanup at the end left our yard immaculate.
There was literally nothing to complain about. We were totally delighted with the entire experience and can recommend Casual Gourmet highly.
Aside from the food, including a delicious and beautiful cake we also had them do the liquor which was a huge help.

We were very fortunate to have had Casual Gourmet cater our daughter's wedding on 10.01.16.

18 November 2016

Where do I begin to describe just how incredible Olive and the Casual Gourmet staff were to have as a part of our wedding. I can honestly say that there is no way our wedding would have run as smoothly as it did without Olive and her incredible staff.

First lets talk about the food. The food is incredible, and both my husband and I come from large Italian families who are very picky about food, and we are still hearing from our friends and family about how it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. On top of that, I have celiac disease and a dairy allergy and Olive and her staff made it so easy for our wedding food to be allergy friendly, and they even made me a vegan/gluten free wedding cake tier which was AMAZING.

But honestly, when you hire Olive and her Casual Gourmet staff you are getting so much more than incredible food, you are getting the support and organization from one of the most respected caterers on Cape Cod, I would even go as for to say all of New England. Olive has incredible relationships with all of the vendors we worked with (all of them LOVE working with her), and was able to make sure that our wedding day ran so smoothly. We got married at a private estate, so there were many moving pieces, with many vendors.

For over a year Olive and her staff worked with us to make sure everything was being arranged and planned well. She was honest with her opinions when I maybe had something in mind that just wasn't realistic, and I think that really helped me stay on track, and plan a wonderful wedding. Olive was also there with her staff days before our wedding making sure our vendors were staying on track, and things were running according to plan.

I knew that because we had Casual Gourmet working with us that there really was nothing we had to worry about on our wedding day. I could go on and on, but honestly there is no one better than Olive and Casual Gourmet, I can't recommend this company highly enough.

Working with Olive and her team at Casual Gourmet was seamless. They handled every little detail and made our planning process so easy. There was a threat of a Hurricane the week of our Ocean Front Reception and Olive was able to keep us calm and have a back up plan! I would HIGHLY recommend working with Casual Gourmet. The food was not your traditional boring wedding food. The appetizers were creative and delicious and fit the reception perfectly! People are still talking about the food! Especially the raw bar!

The Casual Gourmet is absolutely amazing. I can't say enough good things about them. They did the catering for our wedding of 130 people at a tented, outdoor wedding on the water. From the first time we started working with them, they were exceptional. Throughout the process we worked with Mary, Kelly and Olive. All three are top-notch. They work their magic with professionalism, poise and they truly care about their clients and are committed to their work. The food was UNREAL. Our tasting was fully plated, absolutely delicious and every single appetizer was better than the next. We went with the beef tenderloin and seared scallops for our main and the caprese stack for a salad. Short rib wrapped in bacon was the hit of the evening on the appetizer side. The cake was perfect and exactly what we wanted. We tried a few different cake options and honestly, every combination was awesome. Thank you for making our wedding day so special. If you're doing a cape cod wedding or event, look no further. They even helped faciliate and coordinate the vendors, who they partner with very closely, and acted as my day-of wedding coordinator.

The Casual Gourmet did the cake for our wedding last September on Cape Cod and it was delicious!! We actually needed a gluten free cake and I was terrified by what this meant for our non gluten free guests. I should not have worried at all. No one ever would have been able to guess that what they ate was gluten free. It was moist and flavorful and not at all like some of the heavy/dry gluten free cakes out there. Plus I LOVED that lemon cake was available as a gluten free option! Most bakeries only had vanilla or chocolate. We did lemon cake with lemon curd filling!! Yum!! It even tasted good after a year in the freezer when we had it again for our anniversary.

As for decorations they had a ton of pretty options, but we just wanted a simple, elegant white cake with real flowers (from our florist) on the top. They did a beautiful job with this as well.

I would highly recommend Casual Gourmet to anyone looking for a wedding cake on Cape Cod... gluten free or otherwise... I only wish I could click my heels and transport myself from NJ to the cape for another slice right now!

Every aspect of working with Olive, Kelly and the team at Casual Gourmet made the planning process easier and allowed us to feel confident going into our wedding day -- and they absolutely delivered on both the food and coordination that day! Our venue came with nothing but running water, so it was extremely helpful having Casual Gourmet to make recommendations for things like tent, tables, ceremony benches, bathroom trailers and more! We also used their advice on things like DJ and florist since they are so experienced and have done so many beautiful weddings on the Cape. Over email, phone calls and multiple face-to-face meetings, Olive helped us structure the schedule for our day, pick an amazing menu and even came to the rehearsal. Wedding planning can be stressful since most of us have no experience planning this type of event -- but Olive's extensive experience put us at ease with so much of the decision making. The wedding day went flawlessly and all our guests were raving about the hors d'oeuvres and entrees. Not sure what else to say, Casual Gourmet is amazing and I would recommend to anyone having a Cape wedding! More...

I need WAY more stars than this!  The Casual Gourmet is absolutely amazing.  I can't say enough good things about them.  They did the catering for our wedding of 130 people at a tented, outdoor wedding on the water.  From the first time we started working with them, they were exceptional.  Throughout the process we worked with Mary, Kelly and Olive. All three are top-notch.  They work their magic with professionalism, poise and they truly care about their clients and are committed to their work. The food was UNREAL.  Our tasting was fully plated, absolutely delicious and every single appetizer was better than the next.  We went with the beef tenderloin and seared scallops for our main and the caprese stack for a salad.  Short rib wrapped in bacon was the hit of the evening on the appetizer side.  The cake was perfect and exactly what we wanted.  We tried a few different cake options and honestly, every combination was awesome.  Thank you for making our wedding day so special.  It's no wonder all of the previous reviews are just like mine :). If you're doing a cape cod wedding or event, look no further.  I might have to come back and write more later!  THANK YOU THANK YOU! More...

Yum, Yummy, Yummo! Casual Gourmet hosted our wedding at Highfield Hall in Falmouth this past Spring. The food from Casual Gourmet is the most delicious! Guests raved about it all, fun and scrumptious apps, full plates, I mean to the brim, with perfectly cooked meats, and fresh spring vegetables, and the cake. Have you had their cakes? Gorgeous to look at and gorgeous to eat!
Casual Gourmet helped to make our wedding beautiful, worry free and tasty from beginning to end. Mary Lyons, our coordinator, was fantastic! Always helping to guide us through the process, but also letting us decide on the things we liked and preferred for our day. That made me the happiest!
All of the staff are extremely professional, talented, and courteous. Bon Appetite!

I'm so happy we went with Casual Gourmet for our wedding cake and desserts! I was getting fed up going to different bakeries and feeling that the tastes were bland and the presentation was mediocre. We really wanted a small ceremonial cake, cupcakes and pastries. When we went to the cake tasting I was quickly impressed with their professionalism AND THE FILLINGS! I loved the Rasberry jam, salted Carmel and the Rasberry mousse filling! Their EVERYTHING cookies are so yummy and all the pastries were perfect! They were easy to work with, didn't give me a run around with prices and all of our guests were impressed! Whenever I am on the cape they will be my go to place for desserts! Thank you so much for making the cake and desserts one task that was easy to check off! I highly recommend working with them! More...

This place is the best! I have gluten free issues, and they did our cake and cupcakes for our wedding. First of all at the tasting my husband actually said "are you sure these are GF?" There GF cakes and cupcakes you would never know are. I have never tasted a GF cupcake or piece of cake anywhere that didn't taste "different". But not at Casual Gourmet, they are moist, tasty and you would never know they are GF. They have great filling to choose from and types of frosting. Because of this, all the cupcakes were GF, and no one knew any different. Before the wedding i bought some for a 4th of July party to test them out. Not one person questioned, people even had 2nds and 3rds. I now will drive to the Cape to get them. They even had those at my Bridal Shower. Hands down this place is the best. They delivered both the cake and the cupcakes to Coonamessett Inn. No matter what you are looking for, check them out as they are worth every penny More...

From how much and what types of booze to buy to the overall flow of the entire ceremony and reception, Olive was there every step of the way to ensure an amazing evening to remember. I highly recommend her to anyone planning a wedding or large event. Oh, and the cake was phenomenal! More...

The Casual Gourmet is one of the best vendors that we worked with for our wedding! I am a super picky eater and eating healthy, local food is very important to me - and many of my friends and family. I wanted our wedding catering to be nutritious, delicious, and fun. The Casual Gourmet was AMAZING. We had our wedding at a cranberry bog / barn and the decor that The Casual Gourmet came with was absolutely fantastic! They worked with us through meetings planning our menu, visiting our venue, and walking us through a an amazing rehearsal! We wanted to have food stations instead of a buffet line or a plated dinner, because I wanted my guests to be able to customize their food. The Casual Gourmet totally delivered! We had a self-serve garden station with fresh salads, Mediterranean tastings (hummus, tabouleh, pita), and a smorgasbord of grilled vegetables that I fell in love with. We also had a "make your own chowder" station -- which got complements (and tons of visits) all night! Guests loved the ability to customize their vegetarian cream based chowder with scallops, shrimp, clams, chourico, different types of potato, corn, onions, and more! Our main station was a taco station due to my LOVE for fish tacos. The Casual Gourmet set up the station so that people could make their own tacos with grilled white fish, turkey, or no meat at all. There were so many toppings (black bean salad, corn salad, cheese, grilled peppers and onions, pico de gallo, cilantro creme) that I can't remember all of them off the top of my head. It was fantastic! For cocktail hour, The Casual Gourmet provided us with so many assorted cheeses that we have a ton leftover and are excited to eat for the days to come, as well as vegetables and fruit. We also used their coffee and tea service for dessert. We had a friend make our wedding cake, but if I didn't have her make our cake, I would have certainly gone with The Casual Gourmet. I can't say enough for how much extra effort they put in! More...

I worked with Olive and Kelly for my wedding catering and cake. The food was beyond delicious and everyone who attended remarked at how tasty it was! We also used their bartending services to accommodate our custom bar. While it is on the expensive side, the food is worth it and the presentation is lovely. All of the staff that worked the event were very professional and made sure my husband and I as well as our wedding party were provided for and well fed. Our cake was so rich, fluffy and delicious! My husband and I wanted two types of cake and Olive and her team had an easy compromise in differing the layer flavors with the same outside icing (which is soooo good!). We also worked with Olive to coordinate our linens, barware, flatware, plates, etc. which looked amazing and perfect. Olive and her team know what is involved in throwing a great event. We had lots of fun at the tasting and always felt well taken care of. Olive and Kelly know their stuff, know the Cape, and know how to deliver on amazing food. We are looking forward to using them again in the future or just stopping in for some yummy cake! More...

Working with them was basically like having a wedding planner - they were very helpful and efficient.

Stephanie was there with me every step of the way, helping coordinate all my vendors and making sure the whole process from the very beginning to the end of my wedding day flowed smoothly.

I cannot say a bad thing about Casual Gourmet. I worked directly with Mary while discussing our wedding menu, but she and her company are much more than just a catering service. They act as a full service wedding coordinator the day of your event as well as help you correspond/ organize with vendors the weeks leading up. She also did a walk thru the day prior with us, reviewing all important information. On our special day her team conducted themselves with the utmost professionalism, kindness and of course provided great food and service. All of our guests raved about the food, and loved the raw bar we had at cocktail hour. We personally served a family style dinner which I highly recommend especially if you want to get to more dancing! From the day I met Mary to the day after the wedding she was accessible at all times and made us feel like our day was the only one that mattered, even though she juggles many events at a time (and does it well!). I would highly recommend Casual Gourmet's services! More...

I am the mother of the bride and I used the Casual Gourmet. It was for a wedding on the Cape under a tent for 180 guests. I was referred to the Casual Gourmet and I am so glad I chose them. The filet and halibut were absolutely delicious. The were both cooked to perfection. the sides were so delicious as well. I have eaten food from other very well known caterer's and it has not been this tasty. Olive, the owner, was on-site during the wedding as well. She took charge and handled all the catering details to perfection.
If you want great food at your wedding, don't look any further. Call Olive at the Casual Gourmet!

We could not have been more pleased with the CG! Stephanie was our primary contact for the event and was a pleasure to work with. She has vast experience and we felt safe in her hands. The food was fantastic, and we received so many compliments on the food and the staff. Not only did the CG provide catering services, Stephanie also helped with planning, and provided lots of valuable guidance! After our ceremony she even brought me food and champagne while we were taking group photos. In between the photographer organizing groups to shoot, Stephanie would bring food and champagne over to us and then take our glasses away for the photos, then bring them back in between setting up the next group. The staff were also incredibly accommodating with dietary requirements (gluten-free, vegetarian etc). The CG is the one and only choice in my opinion. All of the glowing reviews are true, the service they provide is outstanding. More...

We just got married last weekend and the Casual Gourmet did our catering and wedding cake! I have to say that everything had been made so easy with them! By that I mean every meeting, the tasting, every communication could not have been smoother. Every time you call the bakery they seem to know you and your plans, all the employees seem to communicate very well with one another. I know they are handling so many events and it is easy to feel like just one more of those brides, but the team at Casual Gourmet has made me/ us feel special and heard every time.

I remember reading through their reviews online while deciding who to go with and now I know that they are all true. It will be the best decision you have made to get them take care of your wedding or event!

In regards to all the food; the food is amazing! It was amazing at the tasting and and amazing when they cooked it in my backyard. Our guests were so excited about the food, explaining they have never had such good food at a wedding. I thought as long as the food is fine it will be fine, but the food from the Casual Gourmet was amazing! (lets see how many times I get to use this word in my review :) ) No seriously, the food was so good, imagine the best restaurant food you have had and now add the difficulty of let them serve that to a huge group of guests and cooked in a backyard. I am very impressed!

Yes, it will cost you plenty of money, but if you can I would recommend taking advantage of it!

Thank you so much Olive, Mary and the team!!!

I could not say enough on paper to express how wonderful Mary and The Causal Gourmet team was to have on my wedding day and rehearsal dinner. One of the most important parts of our wedding was to have it be a reflection of my husband and I. We didn't want a "cookie cutter" wedding that was like all of the rest. Mary listened and provided ideas that perfectly complimented our vision. We were comfortable with her, she was attentive, she was flexible and we could not have had such an amazing weekend without her and her team. Three months after we are still receiving compliments on how exceptional the food and service was. In our wedding cards, our friends and family say "It was the best wedding I have ever been to." I can't say thank you enough to Casual Gourmet!!!!! More...

Casual gourmet did a wonderful job catering our wedding. Mary was always prompt, responsive and really easy to work with. We did not want to have a formal seated meal, we wanted more of a "grazing party" without assigned seating and tables of several different sizes. Casual Gourmet heard our vision and worked hard to help us execute it. Everything came together beautifully. All of our guests really loved the food! We wanted to use pies from our local bakery and they were also really flexible and great about this. To top it all off, we did not use a wedding planner but Mary served as a coordinator for the day of the wedding. She is incredibly knowledgeable about many different kinds of vendors on the Cape and does a great job coordinating everything on our wedding day. We would really recommend the Casual Gourmet to anyone thinking of getting married on the Cape! More...

Mary and her team at the Casual Gourmet were a true delight to work with and took our wedding to the next level. People are still raving about the food (especially the chowder bar), and we are actually excited to eat our frozen cake next September (it was that good). From start to finish Mary was responsive, helpful, informative but not pushy, and fun to meet with. Not only was the food flawlessly presented and so tasty, but Mary and her team went the extra mile, even sending a server up to our bridal suite with hors d'oeuvres so we wouldn't miss out on all the deliciousness. Mary also served as our coordinator for the entire day, helping move along and organize the ceremony, cocktail hour, toasts, dances, and of course, the eating and drinking. We couldn't have asked for a better overall experience. If there were tiny hiccups, like the flowers we had set aside not making it on to the cake, I'm sure it was because we forgot to communicate it! I would recommend the Casual Gourmet to anyone having a wedding on the Cape. More...

We LOVED working with Casual Gourmet. Their food is incredible (and all locally sourced) and their staff is unbelievable. Olive (the owner) really worked with us to design a menu that was personal to us and fit in our budget. Their ingredients are super high quality because Olive ensures that everything on the menu is in season. Beyond this, she was great with helping out with the timeline and ensuring that we were set up for the day to run smoothly. Her abundant experience in the industry was extremely helpful throughout the process. It was a huge help that she had worked with our venue before, too, as not many other vendors could say the same.

I can't say enough positive things about Olive's staff, too. Stephanie was our day-of manager and we could not have asked for a better one. She went above and beyond to make sure we, along with all of our family members and guests, were satisfied. She even made sure we got to try the oysters from the raw bar since we weren't able to attend the cocktail hour. My mom is still talking about how Stephanie would check in with her throughout the night to make sure she was happy. Even on the day after the wedding, when we had a small mishap, Stephanie was responsive to our concerns and needs and made sure that everything was taken care of and fixed. She was not satisfied until we were, even if it meant working outside her hours.

We are so happy that we went with Casual Gourmet. They are well worth the money spent!

The Casual Gourmet team, led for our wedding by Mary Lyons, did a wonderful job executing our wishes for our wedding day. The wedding ceremony and reception both took place at the same venue, and they did a great job ensuring the separate spaces for the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing were all unique but flowed well. Mary listened to our preferences for more local and sustainable food, along with vegetarian options, and many of our guests complimented the variety and taste of the food (we did a seated salad then buffet). Our wedding day went amazingly smoothly - from our ceremony time to dinner coordination to cake cutting - and the Casual Gourmet staff did a superb job of attending to all of our guests (150 of them). We were lucky enough to have gorgeous weather as well, and our day was the one we dreamed of, celebrating with our loved ones at a beautiful place. Mary and the Casual Gourmet team were a significant part of making it happen, and we'll always be grateful for their professionalism and outstanding execution of our wedding. More...

Casual Gourmet was my first choice for catering my wedding. I thought that they were just caterers but they are so much more. Casual Gourmet also helps you plan out your schedule for the wedding day as well as directs the other vendors while everything is set up.

I originally won a free wedding cake but the company went out of business a week before my wedding and didn't tell me. Causal Gourmet informed me of the issue and on the Wednesday before my Saturday wedding allowed me to add a cake and full design to my order!

I can't imagine that there is a better caterer on the Cape, they made the wedding and our guests are still talking about the food they served, it's beyond delicious!

Mary Lyons and the Casual Gourmet staff provided our family with the most fabulous wedding we could have imagined. From the first conversation, to the last platters of food and cookies at the after party, the service and quality was superb. Mary acted as our event coordinator, making sure that all the little details were attended to, and that the timeline of activities went off without a hitch. Throughout the planning process, over a year and a half in the making, she was a great resource, assisting with coordinating between vendors so that our event went off flawlessly. The food was delicious, kicked off by a chowder bar set up on the lawn overlooking the ocean-it was beautiful. She helped us with menu choices, and served us a gourmet meal from her shop, that sealed the deal. Her comfortable, can-do attitude instilled in us a calm confidence that everything would be perfect. She even ordered up a spectacular , blue skied, cloudless day to set the tone for our magnificent cape cod wedding. I would whole-heartedly recommend them. More...

Not only was the food outstanding but Olive was there every step of the way. Olive and her team were patient with us when we kept changing the menu and firm when we needed her to be! Not only was Olive our caterer but she became a friend that we will keep in touch with in the years to come. The thing in remember most about our experience with Olive was during cocktail hour she came and found my husband and I. She pulled us away to come and see the tent before anyone else saw it. If it wasn't for her thoughtfulness, professionalism and foresight we would never have had that experience that we will treasure forever. I would and will recommend Casual Gourmet to everyone.

A change in plans left me in need of a wedding cake two weeks before our big day. I was so glad Casual Gourmet was able to provide a delicious, beautiful cake on such short notice. I worked with Marcy and she immediately honed in on what I was looking for in a cake and made design suggestions that were spot on. The tasting was a lot of fun (seven healthy slices of cake and as many decadent fillings!). I went with the lemon cake with raspberry jam filling for my late summer wedding and it was the perfect finish to our clam bake reception. I cannot wait for our anniversary so I can taste that cake once again! More...

The Casual Gourmet was recommended by just about everyone we talked to on the Cape and it is very easy to see why. We threw them some challenges: create a menu representing Cape Cod cuisine with Brazilian and Korean thrown in. They nailed it! From the first moments creating the menu to the tasting to the organization of the wedding day, it was such a pleasure to work with Olive, Sarah and especially Sofia who coordinated everything for the actual event. Our guests not only complimented the delicious and very gourmet hors d'oeuvres and dinner throughout the night but also the personalized and keen attention that the whole staff paid to them. We really appreciated the expert coordination and the caring attitude. Working with Casual Gourmet, you will not only have an excellent caterer but a creative and committed partner to making sure the wedding day is everything you want it to be. More...

It was really easy to set everything up, the tasting was quick AND delicious, and most of all, the cake on our wedding day was just as good as I'd remembered.

We were blessed to have made the right choice with the Casual Gourmet. They were professional, communicative, knowledgeable, and experienced. Olive Chase, the owner, assisted us in the whole process from beginning to end, helping us choose photographer (Steve Haines) and DJ (Cheryl Park). We could relax, knowing the Olive had everything under control, managing details we never would have thought of. We are incredibly grateful to them, and they made our daughter's day the happiest in her life - which of course made us moved beyond words. More...

The Casual Gourmet, who serviced our wedding for us at the Heritage Museum & Gardens in Sandwich, MA, was great! Would definitely recommend. Sarah (who acted as our wedding coordinator) & her staff were SO helpful throughout the entire process, particularly during the last few frantic days of preparation. She accommodated all of our wishes/changes/ etc. The food was delicious. And all of our guests are still talking about the day. It really went perfectly. We also loved how we were able to bring in our own alcohol, though I'm not sure this will be an option in the future. The only teeny complaint I had was the length of time (5 hours, had to be out by 10:30 sharp). It sounds like a lot of time initially but even after keeping the ceremony to 20 minutes, we wished we had more time for dancing at the end. But overall, we had THE BEST time & I can't say enough good things about Sarah for being such a huge help, she really was the best! More...

I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful our experience with the Casual Gourmet for our only daughter's wedding reception. When it is your only child, you want to do it once and you want to do it right and we were "right on" with choosing the Casual Gourmet. From the moment we signed on a year ago until the day of the wedding we were 100% totally happy with the service, the food, the attention to detail, our fabulous coordinator Mary Lyons, and every single other person responsible for the finest wedding I have ever been to. My dreams came true that day and Casual Gourmet had a tremendous part in that! It was magical from beginning to end. I will be forever grateful! And did I mention how reasonable their pricing was? Amazing price for the attention and expertise we received. They are #1! I have been receiving mail all week from guests who said they have never been to a more beautiful wedding, really! More...

Casual Gourmet catered my daughter's wedding at the Winslow Estate on Cape Cod. The food was exceptional - not only delicious, but exquisite to look at. We requested passed hors d'oeuvres, a salad course, and both a fish and a vegetarian entrée. Everything was excellent, and there were rave reviews from the guests. The carrot wedding cake was also delicious - and beautiful!
We dealt with Olive Chase and Sarah Biggs leading up to the big day, and they were great - always responding immediately to any questions and concerns that we had along the way; and at the wedding rehearsal and on the day of the wedding, Olive and her assistant Vicki were absolutely wonderful with their attention to detail AND their incredible flexibility. We could not have been happier with Casual Gourmet, and would recommend them highly and without hesitation!!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Olive and her team. They are true professionals.
The Casual Gourmet was a recommendation from a family friend and probably one of the best (if not the best) decision we made when planning our wedding.
Throughout the year I worked closely with Sarah. She was quick to respond to my inquiries and I never felt like just another client. She was extremely helpful and made the planning process effortless.
Our day went off without a hitch and I honestly can't imagine working with anyone else. We're still getting compliments on the food and day of coordination.

This is going to sound a lot like Jackie's review! From start to finish, Casual Gourmet was a dream to work with. We hired them after having essentially every single other wedding vendor and venue we talked to recommend them, and after meeting with them and seeing how nice they were! The easiest way to review them is probably to talk about each stage of working with them:General process - smooth and painless. We set up an appointment to talk about our rough ideas for wedding plans. Casual then sent us different buffet and station menus, hors d'oeurves menus, etc. along with a very clear breakdown of prices and services. Any time throughout the process that we made a change (adding linens, changing food, changing numbers) they sent an updated summary. Mary and Sarah, whom we worked with the most (Mary coordinated our actual day) were phenomenal at answering questions, and they were both very patient with us, even when we asked a LOT of questions! Also, we fully intended to spend the bulk of our budget on catering, and we did, but we felt the prices were very fair for the amazing food and the very hands-on service we got. They also let us use our own cake and buy our own alcohol while letting us pay just for bartenders, glasses, ice, etc. That was pretty amazing. Tasting - we settled on stations, and then we picked the things we wanted to taste. Even though we were going to have stations, which meant some things would be made to order, they were able to make up sample dishes of everything. Casual was also very nice about letting us bring quite a few people with us! The tasting was fun, but didn't drag on, and as a bonus they packed up all the leftovers for us to take home! Food - amazing. And it was even better at the wedding itself than at the tasting, despite having to make it for more people! We made sure we got time to sit at our table and actually eat, and I am so glad we did. People were raving about the food - our favorites were the tenderloin at the carving station (which was a sweet upgrade from them from the sirloin), the risotto station, and the passed hors d'oeurves: the beef and chive popovers, the lobster with tobiko, the bacon-wrapped scallops...ok, I am going to list everything if I don't stop! Everything tasted fresh and creative without being creative for creativity's sake. They are very willing to mix-and-match stations from different sample menus, which was awesome.Staff/coordination - Casual also acts as your day-of coordinator to some extent, and Mary was amazing at this. She worked with all of our vendors and us to come up with a detailed day-of timeline, and she kept things moving. She ran through our rehearsal with us, and she made sure all my flowers and decorations got set out where they needed to be (I DIY'ed a lot of stuff, dropped it off at the venue, and it magically appeared in place for the reception). The staff was all great - friendly, kept things moving, and good at getting food to me :) They are great with the little touches, too - like, each server carries a basket for your used spoons/napkins/toothpicks.I really cannot say enough good things about working with Casual Gourmet. Wedding planning can be a little stressful, but it was never stressful to ask them a question, because they were so good at coming back with solutions, suggestions, and explanations that were very calming. I hope we get to work with them again someday, and I recommend them for any event, but especially for a wedding! More...

Let me first start out by saying that on the day of my wedding, my cake was EXACTLY how I had pictured it. On top of that, it was delicious! Now let me back up a bit....

The only slight problem I had with this venue was that I contacted them 4 days prior to my wedding and they said they had no record of my order. HOWEVER, after explaining a couple more details and the staff talked amongst themselves, they quickly remembered my order. Not only that, but they designed the PERFECT cake. I believe this misunderstanding had something to do with the fact that I live in Montana and we got married in Cape Cod. Planning from afar was pretty difficult, but they truly made it easier by allowing me to send pictures via email to describe my vision.

All in all, I would highly recommend this vendor for an ideal place to get your wedding cake.

Casual Gourmet truly helped make my wedding "perfect". It sounds crazy to say but I really felt that everything went exactly as I pictured and it was because of Casual Gourmet.

First off the food was great!!! Everyone loved their dinner and that is not something you hear often at weddings. The entree options were great for a fall wedding and the herb salad was very well received! I really actually crave that chicken again! I only had a minute to try the cake the next day but that was great as well! The chef helped me come up with a fun borscht shooter as a passed hor d'eourve, to help bring out some of the russian culture at the wedding.

Most importanty though, Casual Gourmet is a full service event company and I worked very closely with Sarah Biggs to pull everything off. She helped me from day one plan out a schedule of events, find the right vendors, and answer every question that I had. I had tons of questions and Sarah was always very friendly and responsive. I felt like I was the only bride she was working with that whole year, which I know isn't true because Casual does tons of events each week. The day of the wedding went so smoothly and I had absolutely NOTHING to worry about. Everything was set up and laid out and planned perfectly. It really was amazing. All of the guests had a blast. Sarah helped me turn my plain tent into a really gorgeous and cozy venue.

Thanks so much!!!

UNBELIEVABLE!! That is the only word that comes to mind when I think of what it was like to work with The Casual Gourmet. From start to finish, we were "wowed" by the professionalism, knowledge, and creativity of this amazing company. The food itself was to die for. I guess that you can't go wrong with grilled lobster and tenderloin, but the presentation was phenomenal. Our guests are RAVING about the food AND the service. The staff was attentive, courteous, and fun. The people behind the operation, Olive and Mary (sisters), have extensive experience in the industry and work to make sure that every detail is covered. Mary even came to our rehearsal to make sure that everything would run smoothly! She was the backbone of the wedding day, providing instruction to the band and other vendors. She was organized, making sure that we stayed on track without being overly bossy or rigid with us. Thank you again, Mary. We had so much fun with you!Thank you to everyone who helped to make our day so perfect. Al and I are still eating the delicious leftovers that you placed in the fridge for us (thanks for that nice touch). We actually got a chance to enjoy the food that way! The wedding cake was incredible too -- all of the guests loved the red velvet!I highly recommend The Casual Gourmet for ANY event. Thank you again for everything!Jackie & Al More...

Casual Gourmet provided my wedding cake as part of a package with Ocean Edge Resort. I wanted a cake that was beachy, elegant, and unique. I gave them a couple ideas and left the rest of the design up to them. The final product was perfect, and the actualy cake was even better than what was offered at the tasting. The only thing that was slightly disappointing was that fondant was not included in the standard package price with Ocean Edge, so I had to pay extra for the small amount of fondant used. It was worth it though because the cake was one-of-a-kind! More...

Our experience with The Casual Gourmet was very positive for the most part. They handle not only the catering but also coordinate rentals (tables, chairs, linens, etc) which made everything much easier. Their food is excellent, and our coordinator was very good at helping us create a menu that worked with our budget and wedding vision.
One of the issues we had was having our coordinator changed two days before the wedding due to "other engagements". So the one individual we worked with for 6+ months during the planning process wasn't there the day of the event. The replacement coordinator was very good, but going through all of our details with a new person on the rehearsal day wasn't the best use of our time.
Overall though, we are happy with our decision to use The Casual Gourmet and would recommend this caterer to others.

Overall, we were pleased with The Casual Gourmet. The overall experience that they provided for us and our guests was great! For the purpose of this review, I will be a bit picky and also mention that the cost for their services was definitely a bit higher than some of the other quotes we received.

For the most part, the food was excellent, and the cake was delicious and absolutely beautiful. They also did a wonderful job of putting together our creative add-ons on site (ie. centerpieces, favor table, table runners, etc.). Our scores slipped for them for a few reasons. We did hear that a number of plates had raw potatoes served on them. We also were disappointed that after asking for the cake to be served, then the extra pieces be put on a buffet, we didn’t see the cake being served. They were quick to respond by serving some…but I still heard many guests say they didn’t know cake was out, and they never got a piece. We're probably nick-picking here, but we didn’t get any special service as the bride and groom. I’ve seen many weddings where the bride and groom are brought appetizers while they take their formals and miss cocktail hour, but this wasn’t the case. Also, when we sat down for our toast…our toasting flutes were set out, but empty. I had to discreetly hand my class to my cousin to fill it with something from the bar. We didn’t get to eat our meals (no fault of theirs!), but when we asked to have our meals wrapped, they were surprised. At many of our family members’ weddings, not only did the bride and groom take “doggy bags” back to their room with dinner, but they also had the extra cake boxed and sent back. We didn’t see a slice, and assume there must’ve been some because so many guests mentioned they didn’t get any.

Again, overall we were pleased, and would recommend them to a friend! We'd also tell our friend about these little things so that they could just be a bit proactive about it :)

I'm not sure the final tally above gives enough credit to the Casual Gourmet for a delicious and BEAUTIFUL end product. To be fully transparent, we didn't have a choice with our cake vendor: our reception venue (the Coonamessett Inn, was fabulous) required we work with Casual Gourmet. (At this point, we were somewhat grateful to have the choice taken out of it!) The cake was delicious, and the design was exactly what we wanted. Somehow, they managed to take a cake that had turquoise edging, white chocolate seashells and starfish, brown-sugar-as-sand, and adirondack chairs and make it not look cheesy. We couldn't have been happier with the asthetics of the design. The taste was delicious according to my husband (I unfortuantely only got one bite!). I can say that even one day later it was yummy, though obviously the consistency was much better when fresh. I downgraded them a bit for quality of service/responsiveness, as I did feel the main cake person was difficult to catch "live". On the value side, again, we didn't do a ton of due diligence, but their prices seemed responsible to us. The cake was delivered on time, no mishaps, and it's hard to know whether they were "flexible" or not because nothing really went wrong. Overall, a good cake, perfect asthetics, not cheap but not overly expensive, generally positive experience. More...

She guided us through the menu process and provided delicious food in a beautiful presentation. We received so many complements on the food from our guests! She and her staff are very professional and our events went smoothly thanks to their efforts and attention to detail. And because Mary was there to oversee everything, we were able to enjoy both events to the fullest.

It was such a pleasure working with Mary and her team! I highly recommend them and I look forward to working with Casual Gourmet in the future!

Mary from the Casual Gourmet was amazing to work with! We had our wedding at a private residence and Mary went above and beyond. We met on the Thursday before the wedding to go over last minute details and when I told her about our rehearsal she came on Friday to help out. She was very flexible with my requests and I can not say enough good things about her. Her staff was great as well. They were dressed professionally and did a great job with the food, which was amazing (especially the tenderloin). We had a buffet style dinner and they did a great job decorating the buffet. The table linens were clean and crisp and the place settings were nice. We decided to try the cake at Casual Gourmet because we had already decided to go with them as our caterer and I am so happy I did!

Y-U-M! Not your typical wedding cake...it was fresh and delicious! We were able to pick a couple of flavors to use on the different layers. Sarah was very laid back and friendly and they have tons of ideas and pictures to look through. I brought a picture of my own and they were happy to make one just like it. Lucky for us, our wedding package from the Ocean Edge included the cake from the Casual Gourmet...but I would definitely recommend them to any other bride on Cape Cod!! More...

I am so happy I hired the Casual Gourmet for my wedding! I had a somewhat non-traditional wedding, and Cheryl at the Casual Gourmet was wonderfully helpful at coming up with ideas and offering advice to create the casual yet elegant atmosphere I was striving to attain for my wedding. As a catering company, they truly went above and beyond. They helped plan and assisted with wedding coordination the day of the event. Even when I had a problem with my tent, they worked with the tent company to deal with the issue. Their professionalism and responsiveness enabled me to relax during the day, since I knew we were in the best of hands. The food was wonderful--my guests are still raving about it! More...

Our wedding cake was amazing and exactly what we wanted. They were able to mix up the flavors and icings so it was exactly what we had asked for, and it was absolutely delicious. The only reason I didn't give them a 5 was because we were supposed to have a cupcake for my husband who is allergic to dairy and they did not deliver it with the cake, other than that they did an excellent job!

I was not able to experience the traditional wedding cake testing because I was living out of state from the wedding location, however I did have the help of my mother throughout the planning stages. I was able to find a cake disign online that I really loved, so i sent the picture to my mother, she in return went to a local catering and bakery shop with the picture and they were able to completely remake what was on the picture. The cake was amazing and delicious! More...
