Abbey Catering has been bringing our trademark hospitality, abundant menus, and culinary flair to events across San Diego since 2000. We make it our mission to craft celebrations that feel effortless for our clients while utterly wowing their guests.
How do we make event planning not just easy, but deliciously so? It comes down to our obsessive attention to detail, passion for design, and dedication to taste-forward cuisine.
Let's start with our food since amazing cuisine is at the core of any great event. Our dedicated culinary team pours their hearts into designing menus that sync perfectly with our clients' tastes and themes. We believe excellent fare should be accessible to all dietary preferences.
That's why our chefs customize options for gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, vegan, and kosher-style needs so everyone can savor menu magic. We meticulously plan out interactive food stations, cocktail-pairing small plates, buffet lines, and seated dinners to match our clients' visions.
Deliciousness is just the beginning! Our team pours equal passion into designing awe-inspiring event décor. We know that romantic lighting, stunning floral displays, and glam lounge seating convert rooms into radically different landscapes. Our relationships with top vendors across San Diego allow us to secure fantastic rates on rentals, accessories, draping, and more to fit any theme.
It's amazing how a space can morph from a blank-walled room into a glittering Great Gatsby lounge or an enchanted secret garden. We work closely with our venue partners to perfect the layout and décor for a given site. Our meticulous design process ensures that upon arrival, your event impresses and delights your guests. We handle all the styling so that you can relax and soak in the ambiance on your special day.
What celebration is complete without amazing drinks? Our bar packages feature everything from bubbly champagne to craft cocktail bars shaking up your favorites. We secure all the necessary licensing so the fun can flow freely and legally.
For daytime soirees, coffee and tea service add a refined touch. Guests will appreciate the caffeine as they mingle. Offering specialty refreshments shows your consideration as a host.
Planning a special event involves so much more than great food, drinks, and décor. Excellent hospitality means meticulously thinking through every guest's experience from arrival to farewell. That's why our coordinators obsess over details like smooth parking and loading in logistics, table placement, seating charts, and exit send-offs. We want to wow you and your loved ones at every turn!
Our customizable event packages allow you to select enhancements like moody lounge lighting, photo booths, games, A/V equipment, security staffing, and so much more. We provide for all your rental and experience needs while saving you money by bundling services. Consider us your one-stop event concierge!
For multi-day events like weddings and corporate retreats, we go above and beyond to deliver seamlessly stylish occasions over the full duration. Our relationships with venues that offer on-site accommodations make hosting a breeze. We become deeply devoted to every detail so that you can remain relaxed and present.
Where does our dedication to crafting stupendous events come from? Abbey Catering draws inspiration from the lively hospitality of historic European abbeys. Abbeys were pillars of community, with busy kitchens dishing up fresh feasts and welcoming all to gather within their walls.
We aim to recreate that spirit of abundance, beauty, and community through our modern catering services. We envision every event as a joyful haven for making meaningful connections over fantastic fare. Our goal is for you and your guests to leave not just with full bellies but with spirits nourished and memories made.
This ethos of graciousness and celebration informs everything we do. It means infusing our team with friendliness and passion. It means building partnerships rooted in trust across San Diego. It propels us to constantly raise the bar on excellence. We believe sublime hospitality never goes out of style.
How do we consistently achieve event greatness decade after decade? It comes down to tireless attention to detail and boundless creativity. Our coordinators meticulously map out floorplans tailored to your headcount and venue. Our acclaimed chefs brainstorm menus aligned with your tastes. Our client team provides genuine, intuitive hospitality. And our network of vendors enables us to secure picture-perfect rentals and accessories.
We continue to push boundaries. For every new client, our imaginations ignite with fresh inspiration. We find inventive ways to realize your wildest party visions, however elaborate. Our team loves dreaming up events that you and your guests will reminisce about for years.
Simply put: we pour our whole selves into crafting celebrations that feel effortless for you while utterly wowing all who attend. That devotion shines through in every perfected detail.
An essential ingredient to our success has been forging cohesive community relationships. We partner extensively with local vendors to provide business to neighbors. Building strong connections gives back to the community we serve and is a core part of the Abbey Catering spirit. We aim to uplift as we pursue our passion.
This community focus shows in our events as well. We create spaces where people come together to celebrate milestones, laugh wholeheartedly, and make meaningful memories.
