I cannot say enough good things about Pink Avocado and would give 10 stars if that were an option! I am a novice party planner but had to put together a large event with a special menu to accommodate guests with serious celiac disease. Not only did Pink Avocado not bat an eye at my request, the food was absolutely delicious, and nobody even knew that it did not contain wheat OR dairy! (We had the nopalito enchiladas which I HIGHLY recommend - delicious!) My order was a drop-off only, but when the food arrived, I was shamefully unprepared in many ways, and Pink Avocado came to the rescue, going above and beyond helping me keep the food warm til it was time to be served. (Thank you Tina!!!) Bottom line, however, was the quality and taste of the food, and it was superb! I'm getting emails from guests asking me who was the fantastic caterer - it was THAT good! This must sound like an advertisement, but I promise that it's sincere. These folks are professionals in every sense of the word. LOVE THEM! (I should also mention that they were less expensive than other caterers I looked at ... making them a standout in every way!)

Pink Avocado catered a wedding I was a part of. Their food was SO delicious. It was creative and beautifully presented. They went above and beyond. When we forgot table clothes she lent us some of hers. They helped time the cake cutting and had everything ready before we could think to ask. They were so professional as well as friendly. Make an appointment, try the food, hire them! They were on time, reliable and awesome.

Definitely not your standard wedding fare! This was my first experience with PA, and they were really a pleasure to work with. I lucked into using PA by booking Palm Door, where they are in-house caterers. I would use them again when in need of a caterer, and certainly would recommend them.

Trying to coordinate a menu with a couple in Chicago and me as an intermediary was no easy feat, but PA was always willing to work with us. The couple made a general request for an all vegetarian buffet, and to see some options prepared with tofu or other meat-substitute (these were not on the standard menu that is shared initially). We received a very thoughtful and creative first stab at a menu - I think we only ended up swapping out 2 items.

The bar preparations were equally flexible and responsive to the couple's desires. Their requests for specific wines and local beer were met, and with either minimal or no additional cost. I was able to add a few items at the last minute without problem, and was more than please to learn that cake service was already included.

On the wedding day, the presentation was beautiful and the food delicious. I heard nothing but compliments all night! The butternut squash bisque shooters and and vegan samosas were especially popular. My only real issue was in regard to the staff: I witnessed a few guests having to wait unnecessarily because of a distracted bartender, and the cake service just seemed a bit disorganized and, well, messy. Regardless, the guests did get their cake! At the end of the evening, PA and Palm Door boxed up the leftover food and cake to send home with us - what a blessing the next day!

Cons: wait staff could be more knowledgable

We cannot sing the praises of PAC enough! They gave us a great deal, created amazing dishes, and provided phenomenal service. One of our big goals for the wedding was to have memorable wedding food, and PAC went above and beyond that goal. We got more compliments on the food than anything else, and we're still always wishing we had some of our wedding buffet. People loved our Turkey Meatloaf ""Cupcakes"" with Sweet Potato ""Frosting""!! Brent and his staff took great direction and were quick to help with anything. Most of the food was locally sourced and/or organic.Not to mention they left our venue ( a family home) cleaner than they found it! We got great feedback on their eagerness and friendliness, as well, and cannot recommend them enough.

Pink Avocado catered our wedding about a month ago.

The owner Brenton Schumacher is probably the nicest guy you'll meet. From the beginning he was warm, friendly and up-beat. We told him our budget and our tastes and he came up with a tailored, creative menu.

Brent was willing to work within our budget at the bar too. Letting us choose our beer selection and recommending some great local wine which we were able to try beforehand.

Even at the tasting, before the wedding, Brent and his staff went out of their way to create a beautiful presentation and took our feedback seriously, happily rearranging flavors according to our specific tastes.

I was glad to find that it is important to PA to use local, organic ingredients when available.

90% of the food was vegetarian and because it was so delicious and beautifully presented, our midwestern families were not turned off. It was the opposite, in fact. People were going out of their way to mention how great the food was and thanking us for having something other than the usual, 'check one: chicken or beef.'

When planning a wedding you can start to feel nickeled-and-dimed by vendors who add a fee for cake-cutting, dish usage or hourly staffing. It was a breeze to work with PA because everything except tax and tip was included. In fact, along the way, Brent would add items to the bar or menu with our approval but without charging us more, all for that first price we quoted him. This saved us a lot of money and confusion.

At the end of the night our guests were so impressed that they were encouraged to box-up and take away the leftovers. The wonderful PA team even made a few boxes just for my bride and I along with well wishes scribed onto the box.

Overall, they were friendly, helpful, professional, creative, worked well within our budget and most importantly, the food was incredibly delicious.

My wife and I went to the Palm Door for a SxSW day showcase we were looking forward to on Saturday which the Pink Avocado were catering (go figure they reside in the same building). The showcase was put on by KEXP, an awesome radio station out of Seattle. Since they were out-of-towners I guess the Pink Avocado felt they could take advantage of them and their Seattle patrons - as well as all the guests that packed the place. We arrived later in the day - around 4:00pm or so. We ordered a couple of 12 oz Lone Star bottles, a very affordable TX beer. Well, not in this case... after the Pink Avocado employee placed the beers on the counter and opened them my wife had a $5 bill out (this is not a high commodity beer by any stretch of the imagination, $5 will easily buy you a 6-pack of it, maybe a 12-pack in some instances).... the annoyed employee said, ""$10.""... to which we replied surprised but nicely, ""$10 for two Lone Stars?"" She said, ""Yes, they're $5 a piece,"" not so nicely I might add. We paid, didn't tip and walked away in shock. It took a good 15 minutes for me to stop bitching about it while the band was playing. I sent a text to a friend about how much we just paid for two Lone Stars to which he responded with, ""That's Communist!"" It's actually Pink Avocado taking advantage of a situation and many out-of-town patrons who don't know any better. I highly suggest boycotting this place and letting anyone you know who works there that they are in fact a Communist and should relocate to Cuba.

Outstanding and fabulous are the first two words that come to mind when thinking about the food and service from Pink Avocado.\r
\r
I can tell you we could not have been more pleased. The food was wonderful and the feedback from every one of our Guests was ""Who did the food, it is fantastic.""\r
\r
That pretty much sums it up. I want to have another party so we can see what you can come up with next. People loved all the food but the presentation of the mini Beef Wellington's in particular people raved about. All the food was well prepared, artfully presented, and best of all was delicious.\r
\r
Brenton and crew are wonderful. Thanks for such a memorable event.

I emailed Brent in regards to my wedding in June and he seemed nice, I met with him on a Tuesday at a Starbucks and we discussed the menu, which went well, nothing too fancy just a simple, casual wedding in South Austin. Brent told me to call him at the end of the week with a decision so that we could fit in a tasting at my house before his appts with South by Southwest. I emailed him that Friday, he said he was very busy and would not have time until after SXSW. Completely understandable, but then I never heard from him again. Slightly disappointed but his menu seemed good, with good prices. Not quite sure what happened.

brent and his staff just catered my wedding and i have to say- they're fabulous! right from the first meeting, he was great to work with- we made a great 'tapas-style' menu and not only was he able to suggest a ton of yummy things from his repertoire, but also had no problem creating my special requests. he also had a lot of great suggestions about serving style, to make the meal feel more like tapas and less like appetizers. the food turned out fabulous and i had so many compliments from guests. brent and co. went out of their way, above and beyond just food, to make our day perfect. the owner of the venue where we were married was a bit difficult to deal with, so brent came and met with her to iron out all details and even surveyed the property and suggested that he make signs, bring garnish for the bar, etc. with all the planning that went into the wedding, it was nice to have him ensure that nothing was forgotten or overlooked. the day of the wedding, it rained right up until 15min AFTER we were supposed to start, but that didn't deter him and his staff- i think they set-up and broke-down all of the tables 3x before it finally stayed dry. the price of his full-service catering was fabulous, too. he definitely helped us stay within our budget. he was also super-communicative and easy to get a hold of via email and phone for any changes or requests i had.\r
\r
all in all- pink avocado was great and my husband and i couldn't be happier. thanks, guys!\r

This was my first time catering a dinner party for our firm. We had about 20 people with varying tastes and ""requirements"". From the first time on the phone with Brent, he helped my through my green experience. We spoke on the phone and via email for weeks before I finally met him the day before the party. So that part of the experience was GREAT. Then came the food - the food was FANTASTIC!!! How can one place have great customer service AND great food!!! The appetizers were so popular that people couldn't tear themselves away to start eating dinner. Then dinner was served and all night and today people have been commenting to me how wonderful everything was - the spice level was perfect, the choices, the seasonings, the centerpieces, the service. I could go on and on. I will end by saying I highly recommend this gem of a catering service. Don't miss an opportunity to hire them for your next event.

AWESOME!! AWESOME!! AWESOME!! That's how I feel about Brent's catering. I needed a caterer for my wedding reception at my house. From the very first phone call Brent made me feel at complete ease, he got exactly what I was saying and wanting. Our theme was Tropical Luau and he delivered it exactly with class. He brought over samples of the menu and I was hooked...his food was unbelievable and he listened to every little detail that I wanted. The night of the party he and his crew came in and took over everything and all I had to do was relax and enjoy. His staff was so attentive and friendly and professional, all of our friends were so impressed. I can't imagine ever using another caterer...he's the one!

I used Brent to cater our Christmas High Tea party this past holiday season. He was so easy to work with and came up with really great ideas. His food was so tasty, I'm still getting compliments. He goes above and beyond the call of duty. He so impressed one of my friends, that she had him also cater her Christmas party just a few days later and he was able to do it on short notice and in amazing fashion as well, she picked a more traditional menu of dinner foods and it was all SO good! I used to be a bridal consultant in the San Francisco Bay Area and he rivals some of my best caterers there! Use him with confidence!
