    SMILE and Spread a Little JOY! Restoring HOPE with Tony and Ann Lancaster




    I hired Hope Cafe for my wedding and they were very accommodating. The food was amazing and the catering went very smooth. My wedding guests commented that the food was the best thing at my wedding. Tony is very easy to work with and makes sure you get what you want. I would definitely recommend Hope Cafe for weddings or large events.


    The food was absolutely delicious and Chef Tony went out of his way to make sure that my wife and I had the perfect wedding day.


    We loved Hope catering since the initial food tasting. We got the lasagna dish and some of their desserts. They were upfront and clear about everything and answered every single one of my questions. Tony and Trista were both very helpful. The day of the wedding the staff was so attentive and on time. Everyone loved the food, large portions, and great service. Loved the cheesecake bars. My guests were all impressed. They even helped me find a wedding cake that everyone loved! I thought the food process was going to be the most stressful part of my wedding but it turned out to be the easiest and best part. They even worked with my budget. Definitely recommending them to anyone hosting an event in need of catering.


    Chef Tony and his staff catered our rehearsal dinner and our wedding. Their food and service were both amazing!! Our guests, as well as my husband and I loved the food and had nothing but great things to say about the meal. We still talk about how good their food is and how impressed we were by their staff. I would recommend this catering company to all my family and friend! Thank you for such an amazing job on our rehearsal dinner, and our wedding day!!

    Turkey Provolone Sub combo.  Moist Turkey on a soft roll, side lettuce salad, a nice small pasta with olives salad and 2 oatmeal cookies.  Perfect lunch meal.  Just wanted to put this out there, that I am in no way employed by these guys.  I've just had the good fortune of enjoying their tasty lunch boxes.  Mange!

    Kilroy's is my #1 go-to catering pick for business meetings.  I have placed orders with them from different workplaces since 2004.  I know I can always count on the food to be excellent and on time.  The gourmet wraps and salads in particular are always a big hit in the office.  One thing that has impressed me over the years is the quality of the meat they use - especially the grilled chicken.  The wraps and salads always have only carefully carved choice cuts.  The staff is a pleasure to work with.  My only disappontment is that there is not yet a walk-in cafe I can order for myself on the weekends when I am craving it.  I love Kilroy's!

    Used my Groupon today to order dinner for my family.  We ordered Santa Maria Tri-Tip Steak and Wine Country Chicken Breast for 15 people w/ mashed potatoes, veggies, salad and rolls.  Food and service was EXCELLENT!!!  Everything was cooked to perfection and the proportions were good.  Had to call them for a last minute schedule change to pick up the food a 1/2 hour late (on a Sunday evening).  Although it was an inconvenience for them, they graciously accommodated my change.  Will definitely use them again!!

    Used my Groupon this past weekend to buy a 6ft sandwich and a pinwheel for a birthday party and everyone loved it. Everyone kept complimenting on the food we ordered. The meat tasted fresh, I was super happy they put enough meat in the sandwich and weren't selfish like other places and the bread was really soft. Also the service was great. For sure we will be ordering from them again.

    Marie M.

    We used a Groupon to buy a 6ft & 3ft sandwich & pinwheels a few weeks ago. No hassle or restrictions for using the Groupon like many retailers. The quality of the meats & bread was great. The bread was soft and the meat had good flavor. The meat tasted fresh and not overly processed like subway. The deliverer was courteous. We will use them in the future should we need another big sandwich.

    Lawrence C.

    Great place to grab a quick bite. Sandwiches & salads are gourmet at cheap prices and the customer service is grade A! I like the Turkey Provolon... I even saved half of my sandwich for the next day and it wasn't soggy at all, perfect sandwich from these guys.

    Kilroy's Sandwich Factory has outstanding food. Every time I have ordered from them they provide outstanding service and the food seems to be the same great quality every order. I have meetings on a regular bases and at each meeting I get compliments on how great the sandwiches are along with the salads and cookies. You will not get a cookie anywhere like the ones that are made at Kilroys. Their box lunches are perfect for meetings. They are very flexible and will try to help accommodate whenever possible. I have never received anything but excellent service and food from Kilroys and recommend them to everyone. Also if you like Turkey and Cranberry I highly recommend their "Turkey Cranberry Sandwiches".

    Amanda P.

    I was pleased with the food and The Chef is very hands on and delivers personally which I really appreciate.   I have set him up as vendor for our company and will be using her to cater for us on a regular basis.

    My wedding was March 21 2015 and I am so happy we had Tony and his team cater our wedding. We did a tasting months prior to wedding date and everything we tasted was great! Tony made the whole process so easy and appreciate anytime I had a question I would email him and he would quickly respond. Everyone at the wedding commented it wasn't "wedding food" and I happily agree from appetizers to main course everything was excellent! Great quality and even better taste...I know who to call on now for all my catering needs!!!

    We buy their burritos from Charlie's Coffee in South Pasadena, and both the veggie and the bacon burritos are excellent! The salsa is superior, texture and taste, and if you need it hotter like me at times just add some tapatio and it's perfect. Surprised not to see more of the products around at other shops.

    Christine F.

    Delicious! I just came from a work meeting and Hope Cafe had catered the lunch. We had a selection of sandwiches and salads. Everything looked fresh and well presented. Even better was the taste of the food. Since we only each got 1 I opted for the Gourmet Poirier salad. I loved it. The lettuce was crisp and the chicken perfectly seasoned. It even came with desert which was a gourmet oatmeal cookie. I'm not even a fan of oatmeal cookies and I inhaled it. I really liked the food as did everyone else at our meeting so we will definitely be calling again. Keep up the great food. Highly recommend and prices are reasonable.

    My experience with Hope Cafe and Catering has been nothing but amazing!!! I had the vegetarian lasagna for lunch one day at a lunch meeting and it was fantastic!! One of the things that I love most about it, is that it's made in a white sauce and not a red. When I called to place an order by myself, I was greeted with nothing but awesome customer service from Trista!! When speaking with Trista she was able to share with me what HOPE stands for. I love the mission and what the company stands for!!

    Ashley A.

    We had 3 meals in 2 days catered and was AMAZING! Meal 1:Pizza, sliders, salad and a wonderful dessert plate. Everything was so awesome, especially because they customized my order for me. Meal 2: Eggs, sausage, bacon and the most amazing French toast soufflé! Everyone RAVED about the French toast, it truly was an amazing treat! Meal3: Turkey- cranberry sandwich, deli wrap, veggie wrap, waldorf chicken salad sandwich, cucumber tomato salad, potato salad and house chips! Woooooow what a spectacular lunch! Everyone enjoyed each and every bit! We will DEFINATLY be using Hope Café for our next event! Also, Trista  and the whole staff were friendly and accommodating to our every request. Thank you guys so much for EVERYTHING. Until next time...
