We used Fresh Connection for our destination wedding and I can’t say enough about them! From the process of picking out our menu all the way through to the quality of the food everything was fantastic! They have great customer service and our guest all loved the food! Thank you Fresh Connection for making our big day even better!!
My son got married just this past weekend to his AMAZING bride! She wanted to cater brunch & lunch for the bridesmaids and I as we'd be getting hair & makeup leaving us stuck in the hotel room from 8am - 2pm. We chose A Fresh Connection because of selection, affordability and responsiveness! We really enjoyed our meals! They were fresh, exactly as ordered and on time. I would definitely recommend them! The only disappointment was they forgot the bottled waters....
Nice little family owned restaurant!! We ordered breakfast the night before and it was ready the next morning. I ended up purchasing a homemade blueberry muffin while I was picking my food up (I didn't need it but it looked to good to say no to) and it was amazing! Everything is priced fairly and the staff is super friendly and jokey. Nowadays you need more friendly places.
Working with Kate was amazing! She was very professional and courteous! Her and the team catered both the food and cake for our wedding and everything tasted AMAZING!!!!!!!! and the price was extremely reasonable. Easy recommendation for any group event!!!
A Fresh Connection catered breakfast for my extended family while we were on vacation and it was a great experience. The quiches and croissants (especially the chocolate one!) were yummy and it was really nice to have a gluten free quiche that tasted just as good as the regular quiches. They delivered to where we were staying in Madeira Beach, and were very professional to work with. I highly recommend them if you are in need of catering in the Tampa Bay Area.
The location is hidden and found it on online search. The place is clean only has a table inside and two outdoor tables. The prices are reasonable and good portion. Only drip coffee and it is from Kawha. Also, military and law enforcement get 10% of the bill.
I have stopped at this Bakery five or six times on a Saturday mornings, the display case when you walk in the front door instantly makes your mouth water and your cavities jump for joy they have several kinds of cupcakes pastries delicious quiche all made from scratch it's a wonderful experience for all ages a visual sensation Goody's oh, my granddaughter and I picked up several items we ate the cupcake and the cherry tart before we could take a picture of it, also one of their best items is their chocolate croissants the items in these pictures are a blueberry tart a chocolate chip muffin and a banana nut muffin
A Fresh Connection Catering provided the grazing table for cocktail hour at my wedding. Talk about INCREDIBLE! Their display was picture perfect and the staff that worked the event was just as 5-star. I emailed and talked on the phone back and forth with Chef Lisa and the day-of event contact, Elizabeth, and they both made my vision come to life. 10/10 would recommend to anyone for their wedding!
Chef Lisa catered a bridal shower I hosted for 30+. We chose a brunch menu . She was very easy to communicate with. She listened to the details of my function and offered great selections ! We got rave reviews from our guests! I highly recommend Chef Lisa & her staff.
A Fresh Connection catered for our wedding and the food was perfect! Chef Lisa was able to work with us to create the perfect menu. Communication was fast and they were able to set up everything we needed and resolved issue that came up promptly. The food was delicious, we had so many compliments from all our guest. The cake was perfect and so delicious. The staff was excellent. Even better, the price was extremely affordable.
Chef LIsa and her staff were such a pleasure to work with on our event last weekend. They are fun, creative, efficient and know how to make food taste delicious. We so appreciated working with Elizabeth in coordinating the event and Anthony’s muffins were perfection! Thank you for accommodating all of our needs from start to finish. We highly recommend A Fresh Connection !!!
A 10 on a scale of 5! Hired for a 90th birthday celebration in our home. We couldn't have been more impressed with the professionalism, the quality of the food, the presentation and the service throughout the evening. From initial phone call, Kim, the event coordinator worked with us to ensure everything was handled: the food, bar tender, rentals of tables, linens, flatware dishware, etc. Didn't have to lift a finger or worry about anything because they took care of it all. You would never know they were here when they left. Everyone had a wonderful time and raved about the food, service and staff. Thank you!! Highly recommend!!
Sending a big thank you to A Fresh Connection (Kim, Liz and Chef Lisa) for the awesome breakfast they catered last week for Morning Star School of Pinellas Park's 50th Anniversary. The food was delicious and everything ran smoothly. Many, many people wanted to know who catered the event! Special shout-out to Kim who coordinated everything. Very professional and would not hesitate to work with them again. Thanks!
We used A Fresh Connection for a corporate event this year and could not be more happy with the result. Chef Lisa and Kim were awesome from beginning to end- making every effort to accommodate any tweaks to the menu and any last minute changes that we needed. They entire staff was on time, thorough, and pleasant- and the food was delicious and super yummy! The pricing was also very reasonable which helped us get the most for our budget. Everyone was quite pleased...thanks again for a wonderful event!!!
What an awesome experience planning a private event with Chef Lisa running the culinary show. She was creative, intuitive and open to all my ideas. All this was done across the country, never having met in person or sampling her food in advance. Wow - she impressed all of us with her flavorful food, cool presentations and wonderful support team including all her chefs and Elizabeth. I would highly recommend and feel I know my "Stuff" being in the hospitality/foodservice business for over 30 years.
Was outstanding service.
Friendly staff and very helpful with making the right choice of picking the right menu for the event.
Really great quality food.
Thank you guys.
Next time definitely calling you.
Amazing food, dedicated staff that I would highly recommend to everyone! I was a super nervous “mother of the bride” with no access to a familiar caterer... I called Chef Lisa and she instantly reassured me that I was in good hands and I had nothing to worry about!!! Well folks, she delivered!
Please allow me to recommend A FRESH CONNECTION CATERING CO.
Saw they had a pop up event with Crafty Bacon B!tch.....omg. Shut the front door. Had the pretzel sandwich with egg, candied bacon, and avacado. Reduculous! My girlfriend had a burrito with the same....she love it. Will be back!
Thanks to Chef Lisa, Kim and staff my son's wedding reception was wonderful. The food was amazing, the service was outstanding. The level of communication throughout the process made for a smooth event. I would recommend A Fresh Connection Catering to anyone that wanted a truly professional staff and great food!
Simply Wow. The incredible foods, the immaculate serving and displays are only surpassed by the quality of the staff.
The explosion of flavors and aromas made the culinary adventure at our event a complete & total success.
Every dish, every flavor - simply Wow.
Our diverse wedding covered the gamut of Vegans to Carnivores all with diverse cultural backgrounds. Chef Lisa and the team at A Fresh Connection
took the challenge and surpassed this perfectionist’s expectations entirely.
Just call them - then stop by the cafe and make them feed you. You too will then have the same out of body experience from the first taste to the last.
Chef Lisa did an absolutely marvelous job catering my wedding! She was VERY easy to work with and flexible around my ridiculous demands. Her team communicated very well with me before the wedding so that during the event I could relax and enjoy myself. The guest were fanatic about the mango salmon and the pineapple tree was beautiful. Thank you so much for making my special day awesome!
From the start I knew I had found the right place for an event I was helping organize for approximately 80 people. Prompt responses from Bill and Lisa upon asking several questions. Food was delicious and beautifully plated for our guests! I would highly recommend and hope to work with Chef Lisa and her team again!
Enjoyed a food tasting session with Fresh Connection.
The food was incredible; fresh, flavorsome and cooked to perfection.
Lisa was extremely personable and attentive. She listened to exactly what was wanted and delivered above and beyond expectation.
I met a friend here for breakfast and was not disappointed. Owner and staff very friendly, the food delicious and the atmosphere warm and inviting. I'll certainly be coming back the next time I'm in the area. Should I ever need a caterer I know who to go to!
This place is amazing!!! A local favorite! If you are ever in the area, you’ve GOTTA check this place out. We make it a point to stop here every time we come to the beach. Best coffee in town. Bill (the owner’s husband) is such a nice guy, very kind and helpful.
We held our first XO Marriage Conference at Life Church in Wesley Chapel recently and needed a caterer and...pause...how amazing is A Fresh Connection! What a chef in Chef Lisa! What a team that served 300 people who are still raving about the elegant, succulent buffet meal served! What great desserts! Most of all, it's the people - we consider them friends! You will be so pleasantly happy for going with A Fresh Connection Catering!
This spot is super cute and you can grab a quick bite. I went in looking for some goodies cause I was craving sweets and I must say my sweet craving was cured lol. The prices are reasonable and the portions was big. I end up getting a s'more cake and it was really good. The location is not on a main street so wouldn't be easy to find but besides that if I'm im the area I would definitely come back.
Fresh Connection arranged a "Celebration of Life" event for 100 people for me on less than a week's notice. The service was professional in every aspect, timely, orderly, and most of all well received. I highly recommend them
This cafe is so nice and clean!! I go to so many cafes that feel over crowded with stuff, and it never gives me the clear headspace vibe I’m looking for, but this place does! The staff and owner are so sweet, they came out and offered to heat up the guava cream cheese croissant and had a very nice chat with them. Such a sweet spot on the corner and so glad to find them!
Lisa has created a warm and inviting space for locals to enjoy a cup of Kahwa coffee and a fresh pastry right in the center of Jungle Terrace. This is a hub for local chefs to work and create for themselves and our community. I am so happy that they’re right down the street from us and look forward to frequenting them often on our easy like Sunday morning walks with our dog Dexter.
Stop your search, I promise you’ve found the best catering company in Tampa Bay!
We hired A Fresh Connection for our Wedding Weekend and they were so helpful in the planning of three separate events over the weekend. They were extremely diligent in their processes leading up to the weekend to be sure everything was perfect.
From designing the menu to organizing all of our rental needs to coordinating last minute changes; Chef Lisa, Kim, Bill and the entire staff made sure our entire weekend was a success.
Our guests absolutely raved about the food and we can’t wait to hire A Fresh Connection again soon!
Chef Lisa and her team are awesome! I hired them for my wedding rehearsal dinner and was really impressed with the whole process. They are incredibly professional and get all your information up front and create a menu just for you! She was able to accommodate for the many food needs in my group (vegans, gluten-frees, paleos) and was really great about working with my budget. She and her team went above and beyond in meeting the needs of my guests and the venue. The food was delicious and we had tons left over! Perfect for wedding day preparations! I also hired their pastry chef, Chef Tony to do the dessert bar and couples cake at my wedding the next day. He was so accommodating to my limited budget and even brought the desserts to the venue and set them up on site! SO thankful for finding a Fresh Connection!! Thank you Chef Lisa and team!! You helped make my wedding special!!
Chef Lisa and her team did an outstanding job for our family event. We had family fly into St Pete to celebrate my Momś birthday. They set up dinner for 12 and lunch for 36 the next day and the weekend was a huge success. We didn t need to do anything - they were very responsive to questions and reasonably priced, and Chef Dawn made a special cake that WOW-D the crowd!!
I thought that finding a caterer for my wedding who would put up with my VERY specific and picky tastes would be a HUGE challenge. I was very wrong. A Fresh Connection caterers worked with me EVERY step of the way, creating a menu that I was absolutely THRILLED with! I wanted everything to be vegan, gluten free, and suit my tastes. They went above and beyond to be sure that me and my now-husband were satisfied. The food was INCREDIBLE and all of our guests kept saying how much they absolutely LOVED it! I'm so glad we got to work with them, and we highly recommend their services!
A top notch catering company from the start. Bill was very helpful in initially speaking to us and gathering information about our theme. From there chef Lisa and Kim were always there to answer our questions and help us come up with a great menu. After the tasting, which was so much fun, we knew they were the ones we wanted. Chef Anthony who made our deserts provided a fantastic tasting too with a pink lemonade mini cake and delicious pina colada cupcakes. A fresh connection helped us take care of all the disposables and rentals too. It was a huge help having them take care of that for us. The food was amazing and everyone said it was fantastic. Their rates are very reasonable too. They helped make our wedding perfect and I can’t thank them enough again for the great job.
Lisa and her team were absolutely amazing. They worked with us the entire way and the 3 most frequently heard comments after our wedding was, how beautiful my wife looked, how amazing the venue was, and how good the food was. With all of the craziness that goes into wedding planning (we did it all ourselves), save yourself one headache and book A Fresh Connection, they will take care of you and make you look like a genius.
Our post wedding Sunday brunch was huge success because of you! Everyone loved the variety of made to order omlettes and waffles! We are already planning our next party using A Fresh Connection Catering- thank you again!
I found Chef Lisa on Thumbtack and I am so glad I went with her and her staff. I had talked to other catering companies and they just weren't offering the service that Fresh Connection was. There was amazing communication from beginning until the day of, she brought food items off of the menu we had chosen to the tasting so we could try everything, and her staff on the day of worked so hard! The food was wonderful and they offer gluten free/vegan options which was crucial for us considering a portion of our party needed those accommodations. The servers were very attentive and the "staff manager" for the day was always keeping tabs on me, making sure myself and the groom had a drink, if we wanted her to make us a plate of food, she kept us in the loop about how the schedule of the night was going and then at the end, they packed everything up in nice containers and cleaned up the kitchen where they had prepared everything and looked as if they had never been there. They went above and beyond what I could've asked for and didn't make me worry for a second on my big day. I recommend them 10 times out of 10! Thank you to everyone who helped make our day memorable!
