He has served kings and presidents. Now he can serve you. Their service staff, trained in the art of fine-dining and led by a group of experienced event managers, have not only received numerous awards from  organizations such as the Southern California Restaurant Writers Association and Wedding Wire, but, more importantly, they have received the continuing praise from the brides, grooms, hosts and guests they have served.

24 Carrots Catering

24 Carrots offers unbelievably delicious food, personalized service, and a genuine passion for helping people make unforgettable memories together.

The Pizza Bakery

A stone’s throw from the ENC and a favorite of the local high school crowd. Great pizza and salad. The slices are huge so have them double cut for birthday parties.

Any theme, any amount, any packaging, any flavor, she will always satisfy your needs. Whether it’s a cocktail party or a large event, Veronicakes would love to supply the sweet treats.
