"Fables and Catering is amazing! I had them cater a workshop at the Austin Carey Learning Center. They were very accommodating in terms of various dietary restrictions and last minute food additions. The food was amazing. I mean the participants clapped after the first day's lunch as it was that good. I wish I could take them back to Boston! I would highly recommend them for any Gainesville locals looking for amazing local food and service."

-Elizabeth Tran

"Fables Catering and Such catered a Friday night Shabbos dinner for my wedding and knocked it out of the park on the food and service. All of my guests were talking about how delicious the food was, and I was so happy to have Cassie there taking care of set-up and take-down of the food. She was flexible and accommodating about every detail, and went above and beyond what I expected. Truly, this is what catering should be! Fables will be my first choice the next time I need catering for an event."

-Maurice Gordon

"I was a guest at the Gainesville Garden Club, July 2nd, 2017, to celebrate a lovely woman turning 100. Fables catered the event and the food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. Lynne, my friend who worked with Cassie, the owner, was so happy with how courteous and professional Val, the staff member in attendance was. Every detail was covered and guests were most complimentary of the food."

-Barb Berg

"The team at Fables has catered a large continuing education conference at the UF Veterinary Hospitals for three years now and I couldn't be happier with their service! Their commitment to local ingredients and packaging that is easy on the environment is admirable and their creative options are so delicious. They are able to accommodate a wide variety of dietary needs and everything I've tried has been excellent. Fables is a fantastic option for local catering!"

-Danielle Shmalberg- UF Veterinary Hospital

"Cassie is very knowledgeable and kind hearted when it comes to planning for your big event. Her food is fresh, local, and so incredibly delicious! The horseradish deviled eggs are amazing, and she has never made a dessert that isn't sure to please a crowd. Amazing!"

-Megan D'Andrea - Megan and Mike's Mobile Massage

"Thank you Fables Catering for our wonderful rehearsal dinner at C Bar Ranch. It was amazing, everything was so fresh and delicious! It was so easy working with you, I really appreciated everything!"

"There aren't enough words to express just how great Fables and Catering Such is. Whether you've had the pleasure of enjoying a mutli-course catered meal or have caught them vending out at events such as The Swallowtail Farm Festival, the food is always to die for. They source everything from local farms, creating dishes with integrity that support our local community. Plus, owner Cassie Lycan and her husband Josh are just about the cutest couple you could ever meet; watching them work together is absolutely adorable. 11/10 would recommend to anyone!"

"Fables catered our daughter's wedding, in our backyard, with 186 guests. Our daughter was the first of our children to get married, so we had no experience organising weddings. Cassie, the owner, was very supportive, full of wise suggestions, and tips. She did a fabulous job! The food was totally delicious and I am still getting compliments on how fresh and tasty it all was.
It was a buffet style wedding, with an Arabic flavour and everything was attractively presented. The staff were hard working and discrete and saw what needed doing and did it.
The owner was amazing. Quietly and calmly making everything a huge success. She was inventive and took the initiative creatively, making a huge success of her part of the wedding and beyond.
The following day they catered a brunch, which was equally delectable. Wonderful quiches and salads, set out attractively to make a more personal space for the 70 or do people who came..
Fables made a fabulous event more fabulous and I would recommend them to everyone needing a caterer. They did a really good job, and we are really grateful for the delicious food and attention to detail."

"The River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding thoroughly enjoyed working with Fables Catering & Such for our vegan mini cupcake needs for our annual Gala and FUNdraiser. Cassie was highly responsive through email, even when we changed our order last minute! They delivered the cupcakes on time with a gorgeous display and were very accommodating with our needs. They were a joy to work with and we and our guests LOVED the cupcakes - vegan chocolate, vanilla, carrot, and red velvet! DELICIOUS!!!!"

-Katie Fields - The River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding

"Fables catered an academic event for UF. Not only their food is exceptional but they were super professional. Cassie worked with us to chose the best menu according to the specific needs of the event and our budget. It was an easy and very transparent process. Everybody at the event complimented their food and beverages. Thank you for helping us making our event a success!"

-Paloma Carton de Grammont

"Fables Catering & Such just catered our school's fundraising Gala Event. The food was absolutely fabulous and the guests couldn't stop talking about how fresh and tasty everything was. Cassie and her crew were extremely professional and a delight to work with! They put together a spread of appetizers and a farm to table meal that kept us all wanting to go back for more!"
