    Below are the preferred caterers for Fremont Abbey. Using another caterer will require an additional $200 fee.

    All the folks listed here know the Abbey setup well and have supported us in various ways in the past so please choose them for your event if at all possible. We do highly recommend asking these caterers about their full service options if you do not have a strong volunteer crew to support your event.


    These caterers have worked in our spaces for many years and have generously supported artist hospitality and our ArtsConnect Program. Because of their many years of partnership, we are pleased to list them both as our current premier caterers:

    “When owner John Bagge began Twelve Baskets Catering in 1976, eating and buying locally was simply his way of life. Once the local eating ethic became a selling point, the company didn’t need to reinvent itself – it has been offering local-food catering to Seattle and Bellevue for more than three decades. Adding flavor to philosophy, our team contributes decades of culinary expertise to Twelve Baskets Catering. Their commitment to delicious food is a significant addition to the company’s sustainability equation.” // 2013 Pick – The Knot of Best Weddings

    – Ask your caterer first as they may provide bar service.  See our Events Guide/FAQ for policies on liquor, beer, wine and permits.

    – Abbey Event/Bar Staff – email our events coordinator to arrange, typically $25/hr + tips, $100 minimum

    – Pour Girls & Guys

    – For Kegs we recommend Two Beers Brewing as they deliver & pickup (including tap), or try Fremont Brewing or arts supporter, Georgetown Brewing.


    Pecado Bueno (Restaurant across the street), a big donor to the arts & community groups
    Not a full service caterer but has great healthy mexican food and can setup a nice taco bar, etc.

    *Note: Food trucks may be added on to your standard catering plan (ie. that includes service staff, dishware, linens, etc) but is not typically sufficient as a full service caterer.  Also, be sure to make a plan for free truck parking on the corner next to the Abbey. To guarantee the spot you may want to leave a car there the night before, or even just get a parking permit from the city.
