Notes from our Foodies...

Our DIY wedding caterer, Melanie Robinson, was amazing! With her excellent team, she provided a super delicious and wholesome feast that many of our guests complimented as being a significant cut above the usual wedding fare. The appetizers were fresh and delicious and I was happily surprised when she had sufficient and pleasant staff serving to our guests when I had only expected them to be brought out and set on tables. So she went over and above, working quietly and diligently, in a well organized and efficient fashion. Her Eclectic Cafe on Mississauga Street in an old antique store in Orillia also serves excellent and wholesome food. Thank you Melanie and your staff for a great wedding feast! 


 What a fantastic meal Melanie prepared for us last evening! Everything was delicious but the braised short rib was over the top! It was such a pleasure to have her come to our home and cook for us and our guests. Everyone loved their meal. We had a very relaxed evening with Melanie taking care of all the details. Thanks again, Melanie. And thanks for letting us hang in the kitchen with you and learn a few things.


 Melanie-just wanted to say what an awesome night of dinner and drinks. Our guests were all extremely pleased with everything that you served. Not only was it delish, but you and Alanna were a joy to have cooking in our kitchen. We so enjoyed our special evening and won’t hesitate to do this again. I have already recommended you to a couple of our friends after them hearing how we all enjoyed the evening. Thanks again and look forward to another wonderful meal with you in the future.


 I had no idea I could love food so much. It’s making all other meals so sad because they aren’t Melanie’s creations. I’m counting down the minutes until I can eat here again. ♥️ 


 Stopped by the Eclectic Café on Friday before my gym workout to grab a quick little   pick-me-up. Melanie was kind and super helpful! It was shortly after 4pm, so they were getting ready to close, but they still had plenty of baked goods available! Had to try the Buttercream Cookie Sandwich and the Blueberry Lemon Scone! While they were both amazingly delicious, the scone was my fav! It came with Maple Butter and I've never tasted a scone like it! Will definitely be back to try more baked goods and many of the other food & drink offerings at this café! Thank you! 


 We recently hired Chef Melanie to cater a dinner for a bachelorette weekend. She was great! Lots of energy and so knowledgeable! She set up stations for a couple of the girls to create a different part of the meal and then at the end everything came together and we had an awesome dinner! Thank you, Chef Melanie! I would highly recommend her catering services for any event you are looking to host.
I've also been to her Cafe a couple of times, and each time is a great experience!


I highly recommend this creative and professional caterer, Melanie Robinson. We wanted a Canadian themed dinner and the menu was outstanding. Our guests were blown away with the tasty pickerel, duck, potatoes and vegetables ( and so much more). The team arrived and got to work like professionals. They made the evening so easy for us to talk with our guests without having to worry about ANYTHING. Our guests had a wonderful time and at the end of the evening, Melanie had taken care of everything. 5 STARS+++


 Melanie is awesome! She prepared the menu, and brought the ingredients for a Spanish Tapas Dinner. Under her patient direction 8 friends cooked the dinner. The recipes were mostly followed and resulted in a Spanish feast, seasoned with laughter, learning and friendship. An awesome evening!
I would highly recommend Melanie to anyone wanting to organize a chef-lead cooking evening. Or for a chef catered event also.


Ammmmmaaaazzzzing! I was planning an event at my house and was desperate to find something reasonably priced and delicious. Usually a difficult task to meet both of those. Thankfully, I was given Melanie's name. Everything was amazing and delivered on time. Thank you so much for literally saving the night!!!!!


 I attended a "Chef guided dinner event" where Chef Melanie was our Chef. I too highly recommend her! Fantastic Chef and fun person to work with in the kitchen! Have her cater your event or attend one. Her dishes are amazing! 


 Such a fun night spent with Melanie teaching us knife skills and all about Spanish Cuisine in our interactive dinner class. It was a very fun evening spent cooking, eating, and socializing with old friends. We can't wait to do it again! Thanks for everything Melanie! 


 Everything I have had that Mel has made has simply blown my mind From soups to scones, ribs to fish, desserts and butters. Mel is so creative and talented. I would highly recommend her for her expertise in the kitchen whether for cooking classes, catering.
