Cassandra Hiltz

Excellent service for a small gathering. Showed up on time and catered to our needs. Staff was able to go with the flow when needed – food was excellent and house was left spotless. Can’t thank you enough – such a great experience.

Christma Nathali

Great organization to work with. I hosted a surprise baby shower for my sister-in-law and they provided some beautiful centrepieces for the party. They are really accommodating, prompt with communication, reasonable in their rates, and meticulous in their creations. I initially had some doubts but you just have to trust them to do their magic!

Kiran Fatima

I called Simply one Saturday afternoon, in desperate need of a caterer for a Tuesday meeting. Peter created a menu, presented, and delivered 100% on time! I have used them two or three times since, and each time is exactly the same! Professional, prompt and perfect! I don’t look for anyone else anymore. I always call SE!
