I just wanted to say a quick thank you to you and your staff for everything this past weekend! Both the rehearsal dinner and the reception went so smoothly - you guys just took care of everything. It was so nice to not worry about any of it. Also, the staff was very friendly and helpful - we had a lot of compliments! You guys are great!

Professional. Prompt. At Your Service.

We offer the peace of mind that comes with working with a professional caterer.


Just like when you go back home to Grandma’s house, there’s just something better about homemade food. We agree! With our team of highly-trained chefs, we ensure our food is fresh, delicious and has that feeling of farm-to-table home cooking. Feeding 250 guests a meal is certainly a greater task than feeding your own family around the dinner table, but that doesn’t here mean we will cut corners. The look on our clients’ faces after a delicious meal is reason enough to go the extra mile to prepare our food at the highest quality.


Blue Plate Catering is dedicated to supporting the economic and environmental well-being of our local community. With this in mind, we make every effort possible to purchase labrokes locally-grown meat and dairy from local coops and organizations right in the Heartland.  We are excited that our catering operations can be a source of support for our local farmers and their families. We also have a number of local options for produce, including our partnership with Fifth Season IMG_4581Cooperative.


There is something to be said about working with professionals.With over 100 years in the food and catering industry combined, our management staff know what it takes to deliver the best quality food and event planning services possible. Put your mind at ease; we can take away the stress and uncertainty of planning your next event and replace it with confidence. Don’t believe us? Ask our clients, who have voted us as the Best of Madison caterer 11 years in a row
