From the locally sourced products we prepare using only the freshest ingredients to our high quality, every detail is important to us. Starting with our catering services, our Chef prepares from scratch traditional recipes guaranteeing the best flavors and making your affair feel as if you are part of a unique family. From our pasta sauces, made fresh and from scratch, to our Tuscan family traditional recipes handed down to us from our Italian heritage, we focus on fresh flavor as our main goal. Combined with a backdrop for our venue space, The Vidal House, is a completely restored 100 year old Victorian house with original wood flooring, antique fireplaces & restored ornate stairway. Many special touches have been refurbished and enhanced including a brick covered courtyard with Lion spewing Fountain modeled after a Parisian fountain from the old world all of which is at your disposal to make for a perfect cherished day to remember.

Our warm historic ambiance makes for the perfect comfortable space for you and your guests with freshly prepared gourmet local food as our main focus.

We specialize in small intimate weddings here at the Café which can include the Ceremony and the Catered Reception in one. This allows for your guests to stay in one place and for a relaxed day for your event. Our catered menu options include tiered menus for coursed dinners. Our menus however, are only suggestions of recipes we typically offer, however we can provide for specific themes, cater to food restrictions or prepare special family recipes you would like us as our kitchen can create and prepare custom menus for your choices as well.

Another addition to what we offer in our pricing is the use of all of our antique wood tables, chairs and our black iron patio tables with chairs which are available with each event here at the café for exclusive use by you and your guests on the day of the event at no additional charge. We provide, as part of our concierge service, small touches such as the availability to use a small selection of linen’s in colors available at the café as well as the rental of all white linens for all the tables. With our concierge service each event we host offers the ability to upgrade for décor such as adding antique glass vases of fresh local wildflowers and tea lights in crystal wine glasses for ambiance at your seating tables. Our outside courtyard is also lit with overhead string lights and our tiki torches are lit at dusk for every event we host.

Our seating capacity for weddings is 35 guests or under. (We can accommodate up to 45 guests for a cocktail type reception with limited seating and pub tables for standing room only however). 35 guests is our maximum capacity for seated guests as our interior seating spaces inside the Historic Vidal House are limited.
