Private Party Planning Guide

We are so pleased that you are considering hosting your party at Café Adelaide. We want entertaining at Café Adelaide to have the same ambiance and hospitality as that of entertaining in your home.

Scroll down to find guidelines and suggestions developed to ensure that your party will be a great success. We request that you plan one set menu for parties of more than 14 guests. If your party includes 15 or fewer guests, you may choose to order directly from the restaurant menu.  If you are pre-selecting more than one entrée your price per person will be the price of the higher priced entrée.

We look forward to having you and your guests dine with us.
