“Homemade cooking without the mess” is how David Platzer, Executive Chef for Garden of the Gods Catering and the Westside Market describes the flavor of the food. Nestled off of Hwy 24 as the former Garden of the Gods Market and Café – Garden of the Gods Catering and the Westside Market is already making a name for themselves with locals and travelers alike.
“Sit with your kids, do the homework, you don’t have to slave the entire day and end up buying food with no nutritional value in the drive-thru. That’s why we are here.”
Don’t confuse Garden of the Gods Catering with other entities in town with “Garden of the Gods” in their name. Garden of the Gods Catering is not new the Colorado Springs scene and has been a staple for culinary excellence for decades.
Their website boasts –
“Our award winning dishes will provide you with a personalized culinary experience you won’t find anywhere else. From high end weddings to low key baby showers to executive business luncheons – we’ll help you create memories that are as unique and unforgettable as our food. For both executive and social events, we proudly feature some of the most creative and award-winning culinary talent in our region. Believing that delicious food must also be beautifully displayed, our attention to detail presentation is paramount.”
Their catering options are endless – from all inclusive custom menus, to one-off picnics and even bagged lunches for company retreats. Garden of the Gods Catering does an exceptional job curating the perfect meal for all groups and individuals.
Most recently they branded the “The Westside Market” which provides grab and go items that rotate frequently. Soups, breads, pickles, salads, an array of juices and beverages – there is a niche and item for anyone.
“Fresh food prepared for you, take it home and put it in the over – and there, you have a homemade meal in the oven,” says Christina Schell , the sales manager for Garden of the Gods Catering.
And that’s exactly what they do and will continue to do.
