If you're planning a wedding or event on the Island, we'd love to help make it a day to remember. We cater events at Artscape Gibraltar PointWard's Island AssociationAlgonquin Island Association, the Vintage Islanders Community Room at the Shaw House, and any number of picnics, bonfires, beach barbecues and house parties on the Island. Please ask!


For years before the cafe opened, the Freeman-McIntyre family catered events on Toronto Island. These days, The Island Cafe Catering team manages corporate picnics, weddings, high school proms, conference luncheons, hockey team BBQs, and birthday parties.  Our events range in size from intimate six person staff retreats to multi-day music festivals serving over 1000 people per day. Whatever your event, we offer versatile, diverse, and delicious menus at a reasonable cost.

Our catering team will meet with you to plan and personalize your event. We can help you with transportion, decorating your venue, music and musicians, photography, and all rentals from chairs and tents to glassware and silverware. We're here for you for no-stress rehearsal dinners. We also provide all staffing, and offer a very helpful next-day clean-up service to meet your rental requirements. 

We also make custom cakes! Our inhouse baker Maura McIntyre creates custom wedding cakes that are exquisitely delicious (her rich, dense chocolate-espresso fudge layer cake with dark chocolate butter-cream icing comes to mind) and beautiful. Consult with her about flavours and combinations, and she will concoct a stunning, delectable treat for your special day. We also provide other small treats for picnics and retreats, from our famous butter tarts to brownies, blondies, chewy cookies, breakfast muffins, tarts and squares, pies, cakes, and sweet breads. Just ask!
