A Variety of Service Styles

At Platters Catering & Events, we take catering to the next level by providing a variety of serving styles to suit your unique events and gatherings in Cambridge.

Plated service

The perfect choice for weddings and corporate receptions, our plated service comes with appetizer, entrée, and dessert of your choice, all served by professional waitstaff.

Country style

Similar to the plated service in that you and your guests will each have an appetizer, entrée, and dessert, country style involves guests serving themselves from common plates and pots. Best for family gatherings and public meals.

Marche stations

Our marche stations are designed to ensure guest interaction and menu creativity. Themed or not, you can choose from a carving station, designer pasta bar, stir fry station, fajita station, made-to-order salad bar, dessert crepe station, or designer sundae and ice cream station.


Choose a classic buffet for your next event. Great for holiday parties, you can choose from the chef’s catering menu, or work with us to create your own specialty buffet.

Benefits of Going Pro With Your Catering Needs

We all know that preparing, cooking and serving a meal from scratch is one of the most rewarding experiences that any person can enjoy. There are few feelings that come close to seeing many happy faces following the hard work that you have undertaken. Sourcing your food from scratch and creating a meal or menu that is filled with your personality is an amazing end-result, but the simple reality is that for many people, this is an unrealistic expectation and one that is not without its risks.

Catering, as you probably know, is a multifaceted industry that requires years of expertise to perfect. What’s more, it also needs a team of dedicated and committed professionals who know exactly what they are doing. That is why if you are planning a wedding, birthday or a dinner party for a special occasion, you really need to consider the many benefits that come from going pro. At Platters Catering & Events, our catering experience and expertise is second to none and we will stop at nothing in the pursuit of absolute perfection for our clients.
