Catering Testimonials

Michael Seewer, Episcopal Church of the Advent

Working with Anne and the staff at Mayan Café was a sincere pleasure! A friend of mine recommended that we try out MC for our catering event…I didn’t know they had catering. We took at look at the catering information on the website, and the quality of the food and affordable prices were quite enticing. After reaching out and speaking with Anne, I quickly learned that the level of professionalism and sincere attention to detail was exactly what I was looking for! We had a few email conversations, and then a preliminary meeting far enough in advance to make sure we knew we could pull off our event. Working with Anne left me no doubts, only full confidence, that the food and service the Mayan Café would provide would be hands down fantastic. The evening of our event, the crew got everything situated timely, and took care of a lot of the “front of house” duties that I didn’t have time to deal with. Anne and her staff bent over backwards to make sure that the food kept coming, and every guest’s plate was full of delicious and delectable food. The food was AMAZING, and I heard nothing but rave reviews all night.
Thank you to the Mayan Cafe, to the chef, and to all of the people who helped make my church’s event so very successful and memorable. We hope to work with you again in the future!

Debbie and I were thrilled with our event (50th wedding anniversary party) at Foxhollow Farm! We are so thankful for Anne’s detailed planning and suggestions; the florist, bartender, linens & venue were perfect.  Bruce’s food was so yummy, and set the tone of the party in a fun way. The Mayan Cafe is a first class operation; thank you so much for all your energy and dedication!

Elizabeth Cassady, Bellarmine University

We had Mayan Cafe cater our Senior Dance this year. The food was wonderful! Anne and Bruce were fabulous to work with and took care of everything for us. They were both on-hand throughout the event to make sure the food quality and service was exceptional. I will certainly be using Mayan Cafe again for catering needs!!

“Not only do Bruce Ucan and Anne Shadle do a terrific job with the Mayan Café, but perhaps one of the best kept Louisville secrets (that really shouldn’t be a secret) is the Café’s catering business. Being one of our favorite Louisville Original restaurants, my wife and I asked Anne if the Mayan Café could cater our wedding at the Mellwood Arts Center in September 2008. Anne invited us to come to the restaurant one afternoon to discuss and taste various possibilities. WOW! That was a treat in itself. There seemed to be no limit to what we could put together, and Anne was exceedingly helpful and accommodating in working with us. We decided on a number of scrumptious appetizers preceding a wonderful buffet. Anne was able to arrange the wine service for the event as well.

On our wedding day, Bruce, Anne, and several of their very capable servers arrived and started working their magic. Our families and guests ooh’ed and ahh’ed over the visual presentations and then were absolutely delighted by the tasty hors d’oeuvres and buffet items. Bruce even went as far as volunteering to cut and serve our wedding cakes. I know it might be a bit unusual but we brought Bruce and Anne and their staff out for a well deserved round of applause. As one who has attended a great many weddings, I cannot recall a better catering service anywhere, anytime. We continue to get compliments about our wedding reception, especially the food (which, we have been repeatedly told by a variety of people, was the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding). Mayan Café remains high on our list of favorite restaurants, and every chance we get we recommend that people treat themselves to the culinary magic of Bruce’s cooking and the thoroughly enjoyable atmosphere of the restaurant under Anne’s expert direction.”

Ross Primmer, De Leon & Primmer Architecture Workshop

“Knowing already that every meal Chef Bruce creates is spot-on and that the Mayan Café cater dinners and events was an easy choice. Always using ingredients fresh that very day, and always creating meals specially for the evening. Bruce and the Mayan Café hand-tailor a complete meal from appetizers through dessert – all prepared with equal attention to both quality and ease of serving. Delivering and pre-prepping every dish before the dinner, we now consider the Mayan Café our personal chefs. Mayan Café has never disappointed with its food, and the crew goes out of their way to take stress out of the equation. Mayan Café is tops with us.”

Kory Kelly, Director of Marketing & Communications for Actors Theatre

“Mayan Café catered a major event that we had for our gallery this season. They were wonderful to work with and the food was absolutely amazing! Everything was so good that by the end of the event there wasn’t a crumb left and people were still begging for more.”

Chris Tyler, Sustainability Engineer for Thermal Equipment

“Mayan Café has been a wonderful catering partner over the last year for me in the Louisville area. Their prices are in line with other caterers, but the quality and variety of food they offer is second to none. With essentially all of the catering materials being environmentally-friendly, compostable materials, you can feel more than comfortable with your catering choice. I know that I can call Mayan Café anytime, and they will take care of my order without any problems whatsoever. Their reliability provides me piece of mind so I can remain focused on my customers.”

Jason Clark, 2010 President of the Louisville Graphic Design Association

Mayan Cafe catered the largest event of our 2010 season. They served up a farm-to-table menu that was inspired and original. The attendees of our event were pleased with the offering, and they were able to work well within our budget. We’ll definitely work with Mayan Cafe again.
