Lily Ruth is a family-owned-and-operated catering company located in Cambridge, Ontario. Named for her beloved grandmother Lily Ruth Matlow, owner Rachelle Matlow started Lily Ruth as a way to share her family’s profound appreciation of a home cooked meal served with all the comforts of home to their local community. Catering to all tastes and events, Lily Ruth serves up a wide variety of delectable dishes for your business lunch, baby shower, charity gala, or wedding, and everything in between. Trust their team to treat your event like it’s their own.

 

“We’re a catering company that truly cares about the experience our clients have,” says Rachelle. “We’re very hands on. My husband is the chef, I handle the bookings, and many of our staff have been with us for a long time. We make your event the best it can possibly be. And we do really good food!” Their prime rib is a particularly popular choice from their vast and ever-changing menu. Looking for tea sandwiches or a dessert bar? No problem. Seating a group of 300 for an evening of exceptional cuisine? No problem! When pressed to list her favourite menu items Rachelle simply cannot choose, “I stand by our food. There’s nothing that I don’t like! Anything we do, we do it well.”

 

At Your Service and Lily Ruth have teamed up several times over the last year, uniting our expertise and quality customer service particularly during wedding season. And we’re gearing up to do it all over again! While Rachelle employs her own service staff, spring and summer require all hands on deck and then some. Working with Rachelle and her team is a truly joyful experience.

 

Our teams complement each other and work together seamlessly. Hiring from a pool of people in a city the size of Cambridge provides dedicated servers to Lily Ruth’s regular staff and At Your Service enhances those teams with specialists from our extensive network of skilled servers with exceptional experience in everything from formal serving to wine and food knowledge. This, alongside our personable approach to service, is what Rachelle speaks to when she talks about our partnership. “Morgan is completely hands-on. He wants to know how the event went, he appreciates all feedback, and he humanizes the experience,” Rachelle says, identifying At Your Service owner and operator Morgan Jones as a likeminded business owner. “He talks to the clients, he talks to his staff, he’s very easy to work with. I’m very specific. We’re known for our service staff and he gets that.” She mentions in particular a time last summer when a server called in sick at the last minute and Morgan and his wife Bridget – both professional servers – stepped up as replacements themselves.

 

We’re pleased to work with Lily Ruth, and we know that you will be, too! Rachelle is ready to take your booking anytime whether you’re planning your wedding next year or a business lunch next week. Call her at 519-623-8500.
