Sample Menus


I have been extremely pleased every time my husband and I have used the catering services of El Meson and Café Ena.  Time after time they have deliver excellent food and professional service.  No matter if it is a work event or a 40th birthday party, their Latin fusion dishes have made history.

Working with Erin and Hector of El Meson and Café Ena catering has been a delicious delight!  From casual to very elegant, from routine board meetings to high-end fundraisers, we've had El Mesón/Café Ena catering always surpass everyone's expectations in both unique food selection and personal service.  Hector's menu has wowed us each time. Erin pays great personal attention to detail and her enthusiasm when explaining the particulars of the wine or food is contagious.  We highly recommend El Meson/Café Ena catering.

Two years after our catering event, our friends still talk about the party. One person said it was by far the best food they'd ever had at a graduation party. The food was healthy and flavorful. The presentation was elegant and memorable. Having Hector and Erin at the party was a pleasure and made it even more special for us


Café Ena/El Meson lets you enjoy the party along with your guests.  I have used their catering services many times for large events and in-home parties.  They are organized, efficient, competitive and offer the most amazing menus that will dazzle your group.  Every party I have worked with Café Ena/El Meson to host has had rave reviews for the quality of the food as well as for the incredibly gracious and hospitable service.  They are a winner and I plan to continue to call on them for help in the future.
