Apple Calzone

This is definitely a Fall favorite. The flakey pastry shell is filled with Autumn goodness and you enjoy the flavors of apple and cinnamon.

Pumpkin Spice Martini

As you let the flavors of a delicious meal settle, you can finish it off with our amazing Pumpkin Spice Martini. This brings us all the way around to a delicious finale on a perfect Fall meal.

We think you probably get the idea - catering saves you an enormous amount of stress.
