"The catering services provided by Cafe Express and Chef James Preszler are amazing. From the beginning of the planning process to the day of the actual event, Cafe Express executes and delivers in every manner. Chef James is knowledgeable, flexible, and can adapt to all schedules, locations, etc. Cafe Express goes beyond your expectations, and I would recommend them to anyone who is planning an event."
