Catering

Whether you’re looking for a wedding reception for 100 guests or a small intimate gathering to celebrate a loved-one’s birthday, The Getaway Café can easily customize the perfect menu to satisfy your guests. We offer a wide variety of catering options. For off-site catering, we can affordably create a buffet featuring Italian, Mexican or American-themed entrees and sides.

Our Getaway-to-Go menu is comprised of family-style entrees that can easily be re-heated in the comfort of your own home. We require a 48 hour notice on these items and each comes complete with fresh vegetables, choice of mashed potatoes and gravy, roasted potatoes or rice medley. In addition to entrees such as our infamous hearty meatloaf, braised beef short ribs, chicken picatta, barbecued baby back pork ribs or vegetarian lasagna, we offer salads, soups, side dishes and more that will be ready to heat and eat in just a matter of minutes. Delivery of your family-style meals is available for a modest fee.

Party platters are a specialty at The Getaway Café, and are perfect for those game-day celebrations or get-togethers with family and friends. Some of our creative options are Mediterranean crostinis with mascarpone cheese or roasted tomato and pesto. Fresh vegetable platter or fruit are also a nice addition to a festive buffet. Other options for your gourmet gatherings are baked brie with carmalized shallots and pears or asparagus tips wrapped with roast beef and horseradish cream.  Need finger sandwiches to feed a crowd? Our roasted turkey with cranberry mayo and jack cheese or roast beef with horseradish cream and swiss are perfect finger foods.  Our amazing meatballs with orange honey barbecue sauce are tried and true crowd pleasers.

If you want your party staffed, we can easily provide professional servers to assist with everything from set-up to break down.  This is the perfect way to host a party and still be able to enjoy it! We take care of all the details, so you can relax and actually enjoy the company of your guests.
