“Tammy and her staff are amazing. We get her Thyme Saving Meals…gourmet every time! They also are great at meeting our dietary needs with our family’s allergies and food restrictions :)”

“I was referred to Simply Thyme by the Mad Hatter Catering. They were booked on my wedding date, but recommended these guys. Initially, it was rather difficult to work with them around MY extremely busy schedule. But Tucker was extremely flexible and understanding about the whole set-up. What these guys did went above and beyond the call of catering. They were able to work with a rather small budget and still give us what we wanted. They truly went above and beyond trying to make my wedding the very best that it could be. When they arrive they go right to work. They were PERFECT in every sense. They didn’t allow any guests to go hungry, go off the deep end with the alcohol, and they even cleaned up and helped the wedding party stack some gifts and chairs. The talent these guys have is awesome, the food is spectacular, and the presentation is just as good. If you get the opportunity to hire them, do it. And don’t forget the rosemary mashed potatoes; they are incredible.”

“Great Food!!!! The cooks are amazing and so are the preppers who bring the food!!”

“Just attended Friendly House auction plated dinner and the food was outstanding and served hot for all 300 guests. The service was excellent and professional. If they do every event like this, they are 5 stars all the way.”
– Michael Fritz
“The recipes are amazing!!! You must try the German Sausage with Chicken!!”
“Received one of their boxed salads at an event and was blown away by the quality of the food, presentation, packaging, and extras. My salad was delicious, and I was very impressed that their utensils set included a moist towelette and a dinner mint.”
– Melanie Nelson
“Wonderful flexible staff. Food is superb and arrives on time and as ordered.”

“Simply Thyme catered our small wedding in Vancouver, WA. We loved working with them from the get-go. They were super responsive to emails and very accommodating to the changes we made to dates/times. We did a tasting where we got to go over all of our options and received excellent feedback and advice on building our menu without feeling pressure. The food was AMAZING and our guests loved all of it, and while the cost of catering was a great value, the food tasted and looked expensive.
Would highly recommend.”
“I had Simply Thyme cater an event with about 120 boxed lunches and was VERY impressed with the quality of the food and even more so with the service.
When I was searching for a caterer, they responded promptly (unlike most) and provided a couple of samples of sandwich boxes which helped me be confident our guests would be satisfied. They provided some ordering advice which helped me order the right number and type of lunches for an estimated number of guests. They were even flexible with dietary requirements! Their service and support continued throughout the process when I was at my busiest, which I can’t say enough about (if you’re an event planner, you know).
The menu is competitively priced, but what set Simply Thyme apart IMHO is the variety of gourmet sandwiches offered and that they include a Northwest style potato salad when most places just offered a bag of chips and cookie (these were also included in their boxed lunches). The sandwiches were all delicious, well presented and perfect for our event.
Our guests were very happy with the lunch so this is one caterer I’ve put high on my list to use again. Did I mention that they’re also a Clark County Green Business?”

“Posting on behalf of our office A.L. Insurance Group. We had a wonderful office outing on Wednesday, May 18th. We ordered our lunch from Simply Thyme Catering, and Michael responded to my initial inquiry quickly. He was so accommodating to work with and easy to get ahold of. We ordered 18-20 boxed lunches with a few people who had some substitutions, and each boxed lunch came with every employee’s name on it with what they ordered and if they had any special requests. This kept my mind at ease (because let’s face it; when it comes to someone who is a picky eater they are generally a VERY picky eater). The delivery showed up right on time, which was amazing because we were on a tight schedule. Super painless and I didn’t need to sign anything or scramble to grab payment. They took care of everything over the phone, which freed me up to scramble to get everyone out of the office on time :). Here are a few comments from our staff members:
“The tuna salad sandwich was almost as good as my mom used to make it and she makes the best tuna salad.”
“Sandwiches looked and tasted delicious”
“That sandwich couldn’t have been made better if I had made it myself the way I like it.”
Bottom line is it was truly a pleasure working with them and the food is well worth it!
Thank you again Simply Thyme & Michael!!!”
“I loved the food they make. It’s simply delicious. Staff will make anything you order, and 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.”
“I decided I wanted to use Simply Thyme for my wedding last fall. I started correspondence with Michael around that time. I felt his communication with me was always thorough and his responses were quick. Once I was able to meet with them and have the taste testing, I was blown away. Michael’s personality is laid-back and relatable enough while still maintaining the professionalism and organization required to run this business. I was immediately comfortable and relaxed. I asked many, many questions as I was just in the beginning planning stages and he was very patient and helpful. Simply Thyme was also very flexible with the financial needs of my wedding. The way they do their menu piece by piece is very unique and made having a nice, formal catered dinner possible.
Then I tried the food.. and oh, my, goodness. I am one of the pickiest eaters and their chicken was incredible. Easily the top three pieces of chicken I have ever had. Perfect amount of herbs and spices while still being delicious and juicy! I can’t wait for my wedding day so I can have more! The green beans I tried were fresh and crispy and, in my opinion, cooked just right. Exactly how I like it. Everything had just the best spices and wasn’t too bland or too salty. It’s important to me that my guests are impressed with my menu and I have no doubt they will be. The dinner plate was also very, very aesthetically pleasing. I am only doing two items on my dinner plate and I was worried this would make the plate look empty, but Simply Thyme, Michael, and Chef Tamara made it look incredible. My guests are going to be in awe once their food is placed in front of them. It’s a five-star restaurant quality food and presentation.
I know they have bad reviews from years and years ago, and when I talked to them about this, they were honest about the issues within the company during those times. Now, with Michael working there and Chef Tamara able to actually work on the food side of things, it’s amazing how they have turned things around. I would not give their past reviews any credit because that’s not how their company is anymore.
I highly recommend them.. if you are wary of the old, bad reviews, simply go in for a tasting and see for yourself like I did. You’ll be pleasantly surprised.”
“On December 31st, 2015, we had my beloved mother-in-law’s (who was 101, almost 102) memorial service at Evergreen Memorial Gardens, with a reception and a celebration of life after the service. I was making plans from Seattle and Evergreen gave me the name of Simply Thyme Catering. I talked to Michael, and they did a beautiful job on the luncheon. I would definitely give them five stars. Everything was done over the phone and Michael went above and beyond with speaking to Evergreen to confirm they would supply beverages, cookies, paper products, and someone to help serve. I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing catering help. Thank you, Michael.”
“We have had Simply Thyme out to our venue several times, and they are always on time, pleasant and the food is..wonderful. We just had our staff dinner this last weekend and ordered their family style service. It was fantastic!!!! The presentation is just as important as the quality of the food to me. They did not disappoint! It was beautiful. The best part though…the steak!!! A glorious thick cut of top sirloin, pink all the way through, with a lovely seared outside. So tender that it melted in my mouth! We were all thrilled. It was fun to see everyone get excited when they realized we also got hot berry crisp!”
Thank you Simply Thyme! Great Job!!”
“We held a small gathering at our home on 3/3/18, and were so happy with all of the food! It was so nice to be able to have such a variety to pick from, and everything we chose was delicious! We plan on using Simply Thyme again!!!!!”

“Had the pleasure of working with Mike and his team at a recently catered corporate event that took place at the Brickstone Ballroom in downtown Vancouver.
Through both my email correspondences and phone calls with Mike I felt completely confident that he fully understood our event and our needs, and he delivered in both quality and service. I was particularly appreciative because we had some very specific and detailed requests regarding the event, but the team was prepared with everything we could have asked for and took care of it all-from set up to break down and a thorough cleaning of the venue.
His servers and staff were respectful, polite, helpful, proactive, and went out of their way to accommodate our guests.”

“Presentation is a serious part of being a professional caterer. It’s not just about incredible, homemade berry/nut muffins, or still- warm sun-dried tomato, spinach with feta, and pine nuts quiche. It’s also about displaying it so your guests know that they are being spoiled.
I needed a decent breakfast for some executives for an important meet-and-greet, and these folks delivered. They do their own baking so you are not getting store-bought food. They also use quality ingredients when preparing their food.
One of the other best parts about this catering business is that they make the person who ordered the food look like they know how to do their own job well.”
– Sherry S.
“We frequently have business meetings. On short notice, I had to find lunch for a group of twelve. Michael took my call at around nine and they delivered by noon. They unwrapped and set up for me, something I usually have to do. Everyone complimented the food and I appreciate the excellent service. We will be using you again. Thank you! Mimi @ Alpha”
– Mimi F.
“Simply Thyme catered my mom’s memorial luncheon last month, and I couldn’t have picked a better caterer. Each time I spoke with Michael Fritz, who was very efficient and responsive via email since we live out of town. Most impressive is the fact that this caterer meets the needs of those with food allergies, gluten, and dairy intolerance. Many who attended commented on how good the food was, and I was impressed with the presentation too. Just cannot recommend them enough!”
– Linda J.
“Owner Tamara treated our class at Learning Point to amazing box lunches from her catering service – the lunches included awesome sandwiches on great bread, potato salad to die for, and the best homemade cookies. A must try if you are looking for a business event lunch that satisfies!! – B Nelson”
