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.

Michelle Crone

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!

Laurie A. Fitzherbert

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!

I have been working closely with the catering staff at Simply Elegant for over 8 months now, and every time I deal with them, it is nothing but a pleasant experience. The staff is very friendly, welcoming and very knowledgeable, they can answer any question I ever have. They are very fast and efficient when it comes to ordering food and make the entire experience easy and painless.

Their menu has a lot of different options to choose from and are very flexible when certain needs are required. They have many options that can be used for different occasions/events.
