Already well known for their breakfast, lunch, and dinner dine-in options at their downtown Valparaiso location, Blackbird Café will bring the great tastes to you through their catering program. Whether you are hosting a special event, such as a business networking night, a baby shower, or a family gathering, the café offers a variety of meal choices to fit any occasion.
Blackbird staff regularly works with several offices around the area, catering office meetings with sandwich trays, salads, and desserts. Although located in Valparaiso, the café isn’t limited to serving Valpo businesses, often providing food for Lunch and Learn training sessions in Portage and Chesterton. The menu can suit every dietary need, as Blackbird offers gluten free, vegetarian, and vegan options.
The café has served various local businesses, including VU Athletics Department, the Valparaiso Parks Department, several law, dentist and doctor offices, the city of Valparaiso, Centier Bank, and many more. Our team at ValpoLife recently enlisted the café’s catering services for our weekly staff meetings, a lunch that has become the highlight of the week. “Our meetings have become healthier and more enjoyable now that we have started having Blackbird Café cater our lunches,” shared CEO and Publisher Chris Mahlmann. “From hot sandwiches to wraps, quiches and salads, there are so many options to choose from, we try something new each week!” enthused Liz Powers, Client Outreach & Communication Coordinator.
The best part about catering your meeting or event with Blackbird is the care you will receive working with their great staff. “Customer service is everything to us,” owner Mary Koselke stated, “It’s everything.”
