Colette’s Catering & Events is a boutique catering company based in Orange County and serving all of Southern California.
We started from humble beginnings…
A one-woman operation, which began in 1992 by our namesake Colette Coffman, focused on cakes and small catering jobs, delivering the finest products and services in the industry. Before long, Duane Greenleaf became co-owner & word spread that Colette’s expanded to meet customer demand with our wonderful cuisine & impeccable service.
We handcraft menus, source locally and customize creative cuisines according to specific wedding and event needs, style and desires. At Colette’s Catering & Events, we are known for putting a twist on classic dishes and enjoy creating our own take on traditional favorites. We start with your vision, add our planning expertise, our knowledge of the latest trends in exceptional, innovative cuisine with our passion for food, style, entertainment and design. We know that food is at the center of every great party and Colette’s creates fabulous cuisine that can make an event truly exceptional.
We have a real passion for food, people and celebrations and pride ourselves in creating an amazing experience from start to finish. We believe that the food should speak for itself and nothing brings people together like a great meal!

The food and cake provided by Colette's Catering was AMAZING! Everyone always says wedding food isn't the best but in our case IT WAS, it was seriously just as delicious as the first time we tasted it at the food tasting. We've had multiple people make comments to us both about how good the food was! – Amanda Z.
We were also impressed with the options and add-ons available for all their wedding packages - they've really streamlined the process while also built in elements to customize to your liking. We went back and forth over several non-standard features, and they worked with us all the way through with a kind of patience only experience can bring, and we were very grateful. The food was a hit and the bars were fully-stocked and smoothly operational. Everything went off without a hitch. All in all - for the value, quality of goods, professionalism of service and soup-to-nuts experience - we just couldn't be happier with Colette’s Catering & Events. Our wedding was everything we wanted it to be and that would not have been possible without their help and wisdom. – Geoff L.
The conversation at the party was all about the FOOD. The food was OUTSTANDING! The service was on point and everything was beautifully done. Colette's did a fabulous job and I'm only sad that I can't be fed from them regularly! – Celeste R.
