Our locations are conveniently located in Vancouver, North Vancouver, and New Westminster. If you have any inquiries, we are simply a phone call, email, or visit away!

Highly Reputable

Since 2005, we have been serving the epicurious with our gastronomic delights. We were selected as the official caterer of the Whistler Canada House during the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, catered to both Squamish and Pemberton Music Festivals, catered to the cast of Arrow and Once Upon A Time, and have been featured on Real Weddings and Style Me Pretty. People love us and we are elated to be able to spread our love through good eats!

Familiarity With Venues

Ever witness a wedding where the caterers are unfamiliar with the venue? Where last-minute panic sets in because nobody knows if there are specific amenities needed to prepare and serve the food? Unlike most caterers, we are very familiar with several lovely venues Vancouver has to offer and have a history of serving at them. Regardless if it is a corporate event, or taking part in a lovely wedding reception, our team is able to make any event special. Some of our favourites include Vandusen Botanical Gardens, Heritage Hall, and UBC Boathouse, but to check out other venues we enjoy catering at, visit this page.

Four Palate Pleasing Locations

IT IS NO SURPRISE that the food scene here, in Vancouver, is a very competitive landscape. Although the food and hospitality industry has its fair share of challenges, it can also be very difficult for diners to decide on their next culinary adventure. For those epicureans and foodies out there who are willing to please their palates with unique gastronomic creations, Vancouver definitely has a lot to offer (but not enough time, naturally).

If you’re nodding your head in agreement, then I am glad you are reading this because Truffles Fine Foods has not just one option for you to satisfy amuse-bouche cravings, but four! Since 2005, we continue to deliver on our reputation of having quality, freshly-prepared foods for a wide range of people, events, and industries. If you are ever in need of a memorable food experience, allow our professionals to satisfy your needs. Here are four locations for you to choose from:

Howe & Davie Kitchen

Situated near the heart of Downtown Vancouver, our Howe & Davie location is the perfect place to grab a quick, delicious bite at any time of the day. Open daily and with menu items freshly prepared by our master chef, this location is perfect for a hasty snack, a gathering after work, or a weekend indulgence.

Truffles Kitchen at VanDusen Garden

Treat yourself to an afternoon of decadence by visiting our unique location within the Visitor’s Centre at the VanDusen Botanical Garden. With stunning views of the exotic flora that the garden has to offer, our café provides a dining space that aligns with the VanDusen Garden Centre’s “Living Building” philosophy. Order from a selection of Fair Trade coffees, handcrafted beverages, and locally-inspired foods – all prepared with the highest quality ingredients. If you desire the next of elegance, Afternoon Tea is also offered. We advise calling head for hours served as it changes seasonally.

North Shore Film Studios Kitchen

Our main catering kitchen and office located in North Vancouver was where all of our culinary magic first happened. Reaching back to how it all began, we are continually humbled and forever thankful to the film industry for helping us to get started. If you are looking to book catering for parties and other events, please give us a call!

Truffles Fine Foods Kitchens

New Westminster Kitchen

Your quest to satisfy your palate isn’t just limited to the City of Vancouver. If you happen to wander through our province’s former capital – New Westminster – we invite you to stop by the new, state-of-the-art Anvil Centre. Our unique kitchen provides visitors with an opportunity to taste our delicious, delectable foods and beverages made with the best and freshest ingredients. The Anvil Centre also makes a great venue to host group events of any size including weddings, conferences, and even board meetings.

Two New Truffles Cafe & Kitchen Locations are Now Open!

This summer was a busy one for Truffles Fine Foods Catering as we opened up two brand new bricks + mortar Truffles Cafe and Kitchen locations around Greater Vancouver.

Truffles Cafe

Though we’re still focused on being the best catering company in Vancouver, we wanted to share our love of food with customers on a daily basis – opting to open several casual Kitchens in Vancouver.  You’ll find them located at Davie and Howe Street downtown and at New Westminster’s Anvil Centre.  Beautifully designed, these are in addition to our Van Dusen Botanical Garden and North Vancouver cafes.

What our Truffles Cafe & Kitchen Locations are Serving

Be sure to visit us at our new locations for breakfast, a quick coffee break, casual lunch or post-work bite! We serve JJBean Coffee, fresh-made artisan sandwiches, salads, daily specials, deserts and sweet treats you’ll love…
