Olympia Catering & Events

The general consensus about wedding reception food is that no one will remember it (food poisoning aside), so why spend a lot of money? Answer: Because you have high culinary standards and actually want your guests to enjoy their dining experience. If your event site doesn’t require that you use an in-house caterer, Olympia should be among your top choices. Established in 1924 as a bakery, it’s been owned by the Diaz family for three generations and has been catering Bay area events for more than 40 years from its well-situated West Tampa location. Olympia provides the whole schmear: attentive, detail-oriented event planners and service personnel; first-rate food and a menu of seasonal selections; a variety of packages ranging from extravagant to budget-conscious; and the added bonus of deliciously moist, well-designed wedding cakes that can be tacked on to any package for a moderate price. 2201 N.
