Capers is a full-service caterer in Portland, Oregon. We prioritize providing each client’s experience through customized menus and experiences. Our chef cares about high-quality and locally-sourced food that features fresh ingredients from each season. That’s why we do not offer pre-made menus; instead, we design menus around each event.

Experience The Capers Difference

Unique And Diverse Experience For Every Occasion

Local. Fresh. Sustainable.

We specialize in featuring locally sourced food and have been doing “farm to table” since 1991. Our catering team is always on a mission to find the most interesting, unique, small batch food products available in Oregon.

Vegan & gluten-free Friendly

We strive to have options for everyone, especially when it comes to dietary restrictions. Whether it be gluten free or vegan, we do it all!

CULTURALLY INSPIRED & DIVERSE

Our menus reflect a wide range of cuisines including Yap, Mexican, Italian, French, Southern, Greek, Thai, Creole, Filipino and PNW inspired.

MADE FROM SCRATCH, MADE TO ORDER

We are relentlessly committed to high standards and fresh food by following our protocol: made from scratch, made to order.

Farm To Table, Sustainably Sourced

We are local, always. We work closely with our local vendors to obtain fresh, seasonal and unique ingredients.

Flexible. Customizable. Memorable.

We are different from others in that we aren’t afraid to try something new. We are proud of our top-quality operations and staff who put extra attention into every detail. We go to great lengths to ensure our clients are happy – we recently secured a rabbi to bless Kosher-prepared food, so our clients would feel comfortable.

PLANNING & COORDINATION

You dream it, we create it. From sit down family style to buffet or even use of our food truck, we are flexible.

EXPERIENCED & TENURED STAFF

Our company is comprised of passionate and fully certified staff who are ready to make your event memorable. 

SECRET WINE ROOM & EVENT SPACE

The secret wine room is perfect for a wine dinner, tasting, modern company meeting, romantic date or a fun friends night.

YOUR IMAGINATION IS THE LIMIT

We are always looking for the next trend, creating out of the box dishes and providing that “wow” factor for guests.
