About Emelle's Catering LTD. and Westside Kitchen
Since opening our doors in 1999, owner and executive chef Mary Lee Newnham’s vision has been to be hospitable and to ensure that each and every guest leaves feeling better than when they arrived. Whether it’s breakfast or lunch at our Westside Kitchen or catering a special event of 1000, Emelle’s committed to creating a special dining experience, one guest at a time.
We believe it is the diversity and flexibility of our services that makes Emelle’s truly unique. Private picnics, corporate deliveries, weddings receptions, cocktail parties or holiday feasts, we apply the same dedication and expertise to a breakfast order of muffins and coffee, as we would to a four course plated dinner. Alongside our main off-premise catering division, we operate our Westside Kitchen bistro in the heart of Mount Pleasant offering delicious breakfast and lunch options of fresh baked muffins and scones; deli fresh sandwiches and salads; house made soups and our famous blue plate specials that keep the neighborhood regulars coming back for more.
Most recently Emelle’s has expanded to the streets of Vancouver with the addition of our Westside Wheels food truck. Daily offerings of meat and bread sandwiches including our famous breakfast egger, favorite lemongrass chicken and authentic fish tacos at our downtown location along with participating in local food festivals and community events has allowed us to continue to grow our brand. Having a food truck has also allowed Emelle’s to diversify the menu options we can offer for off-premise events. Want to serve late night poutine at your wedding reception or an early morning pancake station at your corporate conference? We can do it! We can customize and create a menu that fits within the theme and budget of your event, cooked and served from the window of a food truck!
It is our versatility and wealth of experience that allows our team of professional chefs, servers and event designers to offer our guests both exquisite cuisine and outstanding service every time.
