Sorry y'all, just because I write and photograph food doesn't mean I'm a cook. I'm not that bad at cooking, I just don't enjoy it. Read also, I'm very lazy. We were having a backyard party a couple of weeks ago and I knew after a day of cleaning the house top to bottom, I was NOT going to want to deal with cooking. So, I did some research on some great caterers in Dallas and found one of my favorites, Cafe Express. As it turns out, they have an extensive catering menu and will even deliver everything right to your door.
Party planner I am not. They were so patient working with me. I of course could choose any combination of menu items I wanted, but I'm just not that organized so I asked if they could choose for me. I simply told them the number of people and boy did they MAKE. IT. HAPPEN. for me!
We did a combination of the following:
- Pasta Amore
- Grilled shrimp skewers
- Greek salad
- Hummus tray
Cafe Express offers way more than what's shown above. They can cater everything from from boxed sandwiches and salads to pastas and chef-inspired dishes. All scratch-made recipes and crafted to fit any budget and event.
Most of the catering I've done in Dallas in the past, I had to go pick it up myself. I couldn't believe that they delivered it right to my door. So convenient seeing as (per the usual) I was rushing to get everything ready for the party right up until the last minute.
Everything was so delicious, I can't recommend Cafe Express enough for your next party, or even work event! For a full menu, check out their catering menu here.
Thank you to Cafe Express for providing us with an amazing spread for our party, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
