Brunch & Luncheon Menu Selections

Our catering menu options are designed for light luncheons, showers, brunch, communions, graduations, tea parties for young and old alike or thank you parties for your nearest and dearest! We take pride in offering the most creative options, with locally sourced and organic products for the best value possible. Our menus are designed to be mixed and matched. Everything is made on site from scratch with love and passion!

When choosing menu items, we have a general rule of thumb – 2 tea sandwiches per person, one quiche per ten guests and 2 dessert bites per person. Salads and support items vary depending on how many items you will be serving. We do have minimums on some of our items primarily because some items cannot be purchased in small amounts and we purchase to the party to ensure freshness and quality. Although some of our items are available ala carte, not all.

Orders require no less than a week lead time and during the holiday and graduation seasons we recommend you book with us at least 3 weeks prior as we only take on what we can handle!

The best way to get started with us is by emailing minda@loveanddishescatering.com , Minda Metz, our owner will respond to you quickly making suggestions and offering pricing.

For full service events such as Weddings, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, Rehearsal dinners, Anniversary and Birthday Celebrations please contact Minda Metz at 240 372-7400 and minda@loveanddishescatering.com

We truly look forward to working with you!
