Remain calm and carry on: Gracie’s Luncheonette

Gracie’s Luncheonette’s best event advice: Don’t stress — plan ahead! We stay with you throughout the entire process, making sure that you have everything you need and answer your questions. We try to make the process as easy as possible by offering a selection of pre-set catering packages, as well as being flexible for your customization. For on-site catering, our large dining rooms are perfect for bridal and baby showers, birthday bashes, wedding rehearsal dinners, small weddings, and other celebratory events. Our off-site catered events range from food truck service to full-service buffet to family-style service with all items scratch-made in-house. We also offer special order cakes, pies, donuts, and other desserts from our in-house bakery! We love teaming with local event planners, including A Charmed Affair, our partner in creating the super trendy Donut Wall (A Charmed Affair supplies the wall, we supply the yeast- and cake-made donuts from our extensive donut menu) — yes, even for weddings.
