  • Booking our wedding with Emily's at Mountain Lakes House was the first and best decision I made when planning our wedding. The unpredictable nature of COVID made wedding planning so daunting, but Emily was there to help answer questions and design the perfect intimate wedding every step of the way. Emily and her team handled everything from our welcome table, to alcohol and rentals, food, ceremony set-up...you name it, they had it covered. The grounds at the Mountain Lake House are stunning and the staff made sure the whole day went smoothly. I really can't thank Emily enough for helping to make our day so special, and we cannot wait to go to her cafe on our anniversary to have a little taste of our wedding once again.

  • We could not have made a better choice than Emily's Cafe and Catering to cater our daughter's wedding. From the first phone consultation to all of the planning thereafter, Emily's handled all of the details with extreme professionalism and care. No detail was too small or overlooked. Beth was a dream to work with and made wedding planning a breeze. Even though the weather was not cooperative that day, we had no worries because we knew everything was in place. Emily's handled everything-the ceremony set up, the table and chair and sound system rentals and the alcohol. The food was beyond delicious and the cake they made was perfection-exactly what my daughter and her fiancé wanted. The waitstaff was amazing and no guest lacked for anything. I cannot say enough good things about Emily's Cafe and Catering-you will be very happy if you choose them for your event. I know we are!!!

  • We ended up hiring Emily's to cater our wedding because they are the exclusive catering provider for our venue, the Mountain Lakes House in Princeton, NJ. We are so lucky to have ended up with them and had a fantastic wedding experience. They were helpful and responsive throughout the planning process and provided impeccable service on the big day. We'd hire them again or recommend them to a friend without hesitation.

  • Food was fantastic, cake was beautiful, and the service was friendly and professional. Thanks to Emily's for making our wedding day special. We started planning our event before covid and made many many changes to our plans as the situation evolved. Emily's team was helpful and accomodating throughout.

  • I was so lucky to have found Emily’s...the entire experience was outstanding. The food and service were incredible, and Beth, who was the captain, was so accommodating and helpful and went above and beyond, even meeting me at the venue a few times leading up to the wedding to help me plan. She was wonderful—I can’t say enough about them. Highly recommend!!!

  • An amazing catering manager (Jenn) + food that got endless compliments = a home run. We could not have asked for a better catering manager and company. Jenn is so incredible to work with - she is organized, kind, and ready to accommodate. She is also just an incredible person, and was helping our venue wipe down chairs after a brief rain shower before the ceremony. She is an absolute sweetheart. As if that weren't enough, we got ENDLESS compliments about the food. Weddings are not usually known for their amazing food, and nearly every guest was running up to us saying how incredible the food was. The compliments continued after the wedding, with guests reaching out reiterating how surprising it was to have such good food at a wedding. When we had the tasting, the food was good, don't get me wrong -- but the food they prepared at the actual wedding was out of this world delicious. We could not have asked for a better catering experience.

  • We worked with Sam from Emily's, who is an exclusive caterer for The Mountain Lakes House in Princeton, NJ. Sam has been great from the beginning! From food-tasting until the last minute of our wedding reception. She worked with the party rental company to make sure we have enough of everything without going over our budget. During the day of the wedding, she came to the house early to make sure the bridal party has tea and coffee. She also brought food to me during the photo shoot, kept everything on time, and help packed up everything. Overall, Emily's team was great and went above and beyond! At some point during the night, one of the server helped queued our dance music! (We had an ipod station with playlists). Besides the people, the food was amazing! Every guests at the cocktail hour complimented on the Hors d'oeuvre (lamb chop was the best). Main entree for the dinner was fantastic! I made sure I finish my sear scallop before doing anything else. Thank you Emily for mak... Read more

  • There are no words to explain how much we loved working with Emily’s for our wedding in September of 2018. We were looking for a menu that would reflect the laid-back and comfortable atmosphere we wanted for our wedding, and we were so excited to see that Emily’s had the most perfect menu for us! Our guests raved about how amazing every single hors d’oeuvre and meal was - we had several passed hors d’oeuvres and three attended stations with pulled pork, mac and cheese, salmon and clams, and assorted flatbreads, just to list a few. Our dessert consisted of a variety of cupcake flavors - all of which were absolutely decadent! Finally, the staff at Emily’s was absolutely exceptional. We worked with both Jenn and Danny, who both went above and beyond to make sure that we were taken care of and that the entire day ran smoothly. Both of them were extremely professional, attentive to details, and thorough. The wait staff and bartenders were highly attentive and made sure to take car... Read more

  • Book them, book them, book them, book them. Do it now, you cannot possibly do it fast enough. Having Emily's cater our wedding was hands down the best choice we made during planning. The food is phenomenal- you can find that out when you do a complimentary tasting, probably complimentary because it is basically guaranteed you will book them once you try their food. We had a handful of foodies, people with sensitive diets, and general curmudgeons and they are all still raving about the food. If the incredible food isn't enough to sell you, book Emily's because of Jennifer. By the time we got to the wedding day, I was almost more excited to see Jennifer than I was to see my future husband. Jennifer coordinated our rentals, our alcohol, the staff, set up of our rentals and decorations. She truly did it all. She answered my late night panicked texts and incessant emails. People not only commented on the quality of the food, but also the quality of the service. The bartenders were incre... Read more

  • Words cannot even express how happy we were with Emily's!!! We used them for our wedding last month and they were a huge part in making our day perfect! My husband and I are huge foodies, so it was important to us that we found a caterer that reflected our passion! We were absolutely blown away by everything we tried at our tasting, and everything was just as amazing at the wedding! Every single guest raved about how wonderful everything was! (They're still talking about it a month later!!) And our cake was not only one of the most beautiful wedding cakes I've ever seen, but it seriously may have been the best cake I've ever tasted!! I cannot say enough great things about working with Jennifer! She seriously went above and beyond to make sure our day went smoothly. We had a venue where we had to bring everything in ourselves, and Jenn was SUCH a huge help. She is the sweetest and incredibly professional. We HIGHLY recommend using them!!!

  • We cannot overstate our satisfaction. We worked with both Beth and Samantha throughout the planning process, and Beth was our event captain at the wedding. Both of them were consummate professionals, kind and highly responsive. The entire staff at the wedding was professional and hardworking. And of course the food was excellent. We served meat and fish at our wedding, but I am a vegetarian, so it was important to me to have quality, inspired vegetarian options too. Emily's delivered -- we got so many compliments from our guests (especially on the steak and pumpkin cake). Even beyond the food, Emily's provides incredible value. They work directly with an event rental company and do all of the pre-wedding coordination for you. Our venue (Willowwood Arboretum) was challenging -- there is no running water, and you are basically given use of outdoor space and have to figure the rest out. Emily's handled rentals of the tables, chairs, tent, lighting, dance floor, dishes, silverware, glas... Read more

  • Before you even start reading the next sentence, pick up your phone and schedule the tasting where you will ultimately beg them to cater your wedding (or any other life event). Of all the decisions we made throughout the journey of wedding planning, this was the best of them all. Jenn took the greatest care with every detail from start to finish. And the food was SPECTACULAR. And when I say spectacular, I mean some of the best food we have ever had (and we like to pamper ourselves with nice dinners out quite often). I've heard brides don't often remember the details of the big day, but I most certainly will remember how delicious the passed apps and dinner were that evening. We had a few people comment on the wedding and decor, but almost every single guest commented "that was the best wedding food we have ever had". And that was exactly what we wanted! I honestly can't recommend them enough.

  • We got married at a private venue & Emily's Cafe was spectacular. The staff were warm, friendly and hardworking. They made sure my wife and I got plenty of food on our wedding day, despite the chaos. They brought out kids meals for the little ones immediately after everyone was seated. In addition to food, they also brought various useful signs and a frame to hand all our escort cards from. And, most importantly, their food was DELICIOUS!! Many guests raved about how delicious everything was. Great value for the money. Highly recommend!

  • Sam, our Event Coordinator with Emily's Cafe, was a godsend on the day of our wedding. She made sure that my husband and I were able to try the hors d'oeuvres while we were busy taking photos, and the customer service was excellent. The food was out-of-this-world good (guests are still talking about it 3 weeks later!); it was definitely a highlight of our wedding. The only part where there's room for improvement is in communication. It felt like we were rushing to get everything together during the last week, and the follow-up could have been better earlier in the process, but Sam was very apologetic and helpful about it. I would definitely recommend their food in a heartbeat.
