Our humble beginnings

Founded in 2013, Cricket Cafe & Catering began as a simple corporate breakfast and lunchtime cafeteria in Waltham, Massachusetts. As Head Chef Drew Blanckenberg's cooking skills continued to gain praise from his loyal customers, an opportunity for expansion was quickly recognized. Come September 2017, Cricket Cafe & Catering will be transitioning into a brand-new, luxurious venue with a full-service bar & dinner service, but will continue to offer gourmet meals and catering services at a reasonable price. 

Stay tuned!

Food was great! We got the Greek Chicken, Mediterranean Platter & the Impossible Burgers - which were seasoned nicely & tasted just like beef - better than a lot of burgers I've had actually. The people are very nice to work with.

Absolutely perfect! Our first time ordering from Cricket Cafe and we will definitely be using them again. Food was delivered early, driver was very nice and answered the few questions I had. Ordered the Sandwich Platter with assorted sandwiches for 30 people and I had no leftovers! Food was delicious and looked great!On top of all that, they reached out to after the meal was over just to make sure we were satisfied and we were.

Cricket Cafe & Catering called me directly the evening before to ask about dietary restrictions and to confirm the order. I loved that they did this and it really added a person touch.
