A few great reviews...


Your staff came to my rescue beautifully today! My boss decided at the last minute to serve lunch at a meeting. I made a frantic call to your office and your team very calmly helped me out! Eleven people got fed with the as-always wonderful spread from Emelle's. Please extend my thanks to your staff who made me look good by delivering to us within one hour of my phone call!


Bee - Vancouver Coastal Health


I wanted to pass along that the bride and groom were thrilled with the service & attention delivered by your staff and guests commented on the quality of service and the food. Your team went over and above and made such a great impression. I heard a lot of "best wedding ever" throughout the night. Your staff made my job effortless. Thank you is an understatement.


Kiri - Dreamgroup Weddings & Events


On behalf of everyone at Science World, I would like to thank Emelle's for the fantastic contribution to our Sneak Peek VIP event. The food was wonderful, the staff were professional and friendly, and the event was a success. It means a lot to know that Science World has your support, and we look forward to you catering to our clients in our expanded private event facility.

What could you celebrate?

When you bring people together over delicious food, it's a celebration! For 20 years, the Emelle's team of professional chefs, servers and event designers have been punctuating Vancouver's most heartfelt and victorious celebrations with exquisite cuisine and outstanding service.

During this 20th Anniversary year, we are looking back and celebrating the power of celebration. We've been part of some very powerful and tender moments over the years and, with each passing year, we feel more strongly about the importance of marking time. For our birthday, it is our wish that you celebrate more with the people you live, love and grow with, and we are here to help.  

Let us pack you a private picnic for two, send sandwiches and treats to your next meeting, serve 150 of your closest family and friends, or wow 2500 stakeholders at your next fundraiser or soiree. Nothing is too big or too small, too casual or two exclusive. 

Rustic venue? No kitchen? You want to celebrate in a field you say? No problem. We serve thousands of people a hot catered meal at Bard On The Beach each summer. We transformed a parking lot into a dining room for dignitaries (and had them drooling) during the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. We've got you. 

But, what Emelle's is most proud of is our ability to transform hosts into guests. So what are you waiting for? What could you celebrate this year?

Did you know that Emelle's started out as a café 20 years ago?
One day, a regular customer asked if we could cater a dinner party... and the rest is history.
