  • Carpe donut was a hit at our wedding! We didn’t want to serve cake and Carpe Donut provided a unique service which our guests loved. They served fresh-apple cider donuts and coffee. The donuts are amazing – we still have our family and friends telling us how good they were. Compared to other dessert options, it felt like a very reasonable choice price-wise to go with Carpe Donut. The cart they use is so cute and a great photo op! We are so happy we decided to use Carpe Donut and 100% recommend!

  • Carpe Donut catered my wedding in November 2023, and it was absolutely perfect. Matt was a blast to work with. Our tasting was super fun getting to pick our different donut flavors and drink options. In addition to dessert, the catered the delicious appetizers during the cocktail hour (charceuterie style). Our guests were wowed by the fresh made donuts and delicious hot drinks at the wedding. Instead of doing a cake cutting, Matt had the great idea to do an "infinity donut," and we got some great pictures of my husband and I sharing it lady-and-the-tramp style. Overall it was a great experience working with Carpe Donut. On top of delicious donuts, they are friendly, easy to work with, and very professional. I definitely recommend them if you are looking for a unique dessert option for your event. This is definitely a way better option than cake!

  • Carpe Donut catered a “send off” brunch for our wedding guests and did an amazing job! Thank you to Matt, Jim, Kristianne, and the whole Carpe Donut team!

  • Carpe Donut catered the bridal party breakfast during our wedding and they were absolutely incredible. The food, service, presentation, and value were all 10/10. Would recommend their catering to anyone ten times over.
