Guests Said it was the Best Wedding Food

Scott and Terri at Certainly Cinnamon were amazing to deal The uncertainty of planning a wedding during the pandemic was very stressful but Scott kept us updated on every detail. The food options were amazing (especially the salads) and we heard from many of our guests that the meal was "the best wedding food they've ever had" including the vegetarian option! I recommend them to any bride getting married in Halifax!

True professionals

We had certainly cinnamon cater our pandemic backyard wedding. The food was great, the staff was professional and we didn't have to worry about a thing. Our experience was excellent and would not hesitate to work with them again.

So Professional!!

Scott was so accommodating and truly did everything he promised. Everyone absolutely loved their meals, and those with dairy / celiac or other dietary needs were well provided for. Would absolutely recommend!

I have celiac and require very careful attention to the food. I have attended many weddings where food was not what was expected. It was usually dry and lacking in flavour because it was mass produced - but this food was amazing! We did buffet style southwest chicken and beef ribs and the food was SO good even though we fed over 120 people. People were well fed with appetizers and the main meal and the selection of sides was great!

Certainly Cinnamon was absolutely fantastic! The food was fantastic and they went out of their way to cater to different dietary needs and preferences for our guests. They were professional and helpful, and everyone loved the meal. Scott was such a big help planning all the details to make sure everything went perfectly. I would recommend Certainly Cinnamon to everyone!

Wow! what great service from Certainly cinnamon. The staff are absolutely amazing. They made everything flow so easily. The food was delicious and people couldn't stop raving about the smoked salmon. Scott even helped us plan out the table settings and gave us a great reference and DJ. I'll definitely recommend this team to anyone needing a caterer in the city

thanks Scott!

Scott and his team are the best in the business, at the best price too! A rare combination.

Not only did Certainly Cinnamon provide the best food our guests had ever had at a wedding, they were ready with all kinds of other information (like DJ and photographer recommendations, etc) that made the planning process so easy.

Leading up to the wedding, we were happy to hear from many many people that we had made the right choice with our caterers, and now we'll be telling others the same thing! Thank you!

Certainly Cinnamon catered my daughter's wedding Oct 6,2012 and did a wonderful job despite getting a lot of hassle from the venue management - a testament to their proffesionalism!

I would not hesitate to have them cater an event for me in the future.
