Creative catering starts with listening to your ideas

We offer customized services and menus for a range of budget considerations. Catering prices vary based on menu selections, guests count and level of service, so we’ll create a plan that works for you.

We have developed and offer a range of menu options, all focused on meeting the needs and tastes of host and guests. We provide breakfast menus, “Thyme to Go Box Lunch” with “Hot Options” or “Seasonal Thyme” menus for corporate clients, giving a range of product and price points to meet all budgets.

Our Mission & Commitment

Creating menus that emphasize the attention to quality & presentation with seasonal menus and local ingredients. Providing exceptional service and a creative environment for both employees and clients.

What we offer


Simply Thyme Catering has become well known in the Portland and Vancouver area for helping create beautiful weddings from the rehearsal dinner to the reception to saying “I Do”. Whether your dream wedding is on the coast, in the Columbia River Gorge or your own backyard we are able to cater at your chosen location.


Whether you are planning a small party or large event, we offer you the luxury of being a guest at your own hosted event. As full-service caterers, Chef Tamara and her staff focus on using fresh Northwest ingredients, giving special attention to the quality and presentation of what we prepare.


Simply Thyme Catering offers full-service catering for corporate events of all sizes. From providing lunches at the Clark County Event Center, breakfast buffet at Clark College or appetizers at the Spring Box Gallery, we have worked many venues in Vancouver, Portland, the Gorge and on the coast.


From hot breakfast options to boxed lunches to gourmet meals, Simply Thyme offers a full menu for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert, including a special kids menu and vegetarian options sure to please everyone. Since 2006, we’ve been creating food so good you won’t want your flight to end.

Green Initiative

Each year, Chef Tamara challenges herself by introducing new green practices into both her kitchen initiatives and event productions such as:

  • Buy fresh NW ingredients, purchasing local when possible
  • Buy renewable energy
  • Actively participate in the Clark County recycling and compost program
  • Use quality green disposable tableware for guest use at events
  • Coordinate on-site event recycling and composting

Great food | Happy clients

I loved the food they make, it’s simply delicious. Staff will make anything you order, I especially order from Simply Thyme Catering because I can call in the morning to order and pick it up after work for my dinner. My kids love their food! Staff is professional and pricing is totally reasonable.
