We’re all about Breakfast, Lunch & Snack. We’re the fun healthy caterer for Corporate East Bay. Along with lunch & learn grub, we cater fabulous office parties, receptions & the occasional ginormous Open House.

No, we never get tired of it.
Pacific Fine Food came to Alameda Point in 1999 and opened the doors as a specialty caterer with emphasis on large scale car events that were happening on Alameda Point. While we still offer large scale catering for groups 500+, we find ourselves busy in other areas of the catering world, from production catering & craft services to Corporate BBQ’s & Board Meetings. We rise and shine @ 5am to brew coffee and make our famous cranberry walnut scones, (served with home strawberry jam) and head home at dusk when we feed the Alameda Point bunnies our compost. Gotta love our hours, not! It’s all part of the job. We’re just a little bit crazy; you might call us Catering Nerds. The day we found life size Martini Glasses was almost as exciting as the day we found tropical waxed tissue paper at the flower market! Who better to help you plan and execute the perfect Towne Hall Lunch? Call us anytime and we’d love to chat menus & linens with you! See you soon!!
ABOUT OUR FOUNDER & THE CHEFS
Kelly Kearney is our President and Chief Cook & Bottle Washer & our Queen Bee. With 23 years of corporate business experience, culinary arts & party planning under her apron, (not to mention divine inspiration from her Grandma Dot), she brings boatloads of energy & ideas to the kitchen. Chef Laurie Reffitt got her start at one of San Francisco’s renown Hot Spot, Stars, under Chef Jeremiah Tower. She later went on to open One Market with Bradley Ogden. Chef Katy Kenney sharpened her chops at Square One in SF, then the Townhouse in Emeryville, later she met Kelly in Alameda, where, they realized she would be a perfect fit for our sunrise staff. Chef Phillip Cha joined the staff with a vast knowledge of everything from Argentinean fair to the perfect lemon curd, but we love it most, that he can bring our computer back to life, and always seems to have 2 cans of ‘fix a flat’ in his car, now that’s a jack of all traits! Heather Thiel is leading light in the San Francisco Bay Area’s vegan, gluten free, and nutritionally based food movement. Educated at the California Culinary Academy in Baking and Pastry Arts and with 15 years experience in food production, menu design, marketing and sales, Heather brings her passion for wholesome baking to the Pacific Fine Foods.

At Pacific Fine Food Catering we aim to provide fabulous food, great service and to delight our customers. Our 5,000 square foot kitchen routinely receives glowing inspections from the FDA and all of our kitchen staff has received HACCP training. We’ve lined our court yard with several fine oak barrels where we maintain an extensive organic herb garden, (everything from chocolate mint to pineapple sage). We are an ideal resource for federally governed entities like planes, trains, buses and boats, as well as local Ride and Drive Events here on Alameda Point. We’re just minutes away from the Alameda Point Runways and less than 20 minutes away from the Oakland Airport. Our amazing location with its’ breathtaking view of the San Francisco Skyline, uniquely positions us to cater entire events right here on the base, or deliver to you at the Airport! Come see for yourself or give us a shout. We’d love to help you with your next event!

OUR COMMUNITY – GIVING BACK
We just love the kids. We’ve donated, subsidized and given to many East Bay Kids Organizations from feeding 1200 kids & families for East Bay Parks, Little Farm Day, where we sold BBQ lunches for half price, to donating Breakfasts for 200+ Port of Oakland Scholarship Drive, to subsidizing YMCA Western Addition Kids Fair for 650+ kids, (2 years running)!, to donating salads for 75 hopeful College attendees at a Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Fundraiser, to serving Chicken Enchiladas, Burritos & Latin Salad for 300 parents, students & teachers for Paden Teacher Appreciation Day. For 6 weeks, mid-holiday season in 2007, we prepared daily lunch for 300+ NRC workers as they helped ‘clean the Bay’ after a devastating oil spill in SF Bay. We help feed 2500+ parents & kids for the Black College Expo, here at Alameda Point, again at greatly reduced cost. We raised over $20,000 for the Red Cross in the aftermath of Katrina and we proudly sponsor Ruby Skye Wood, a 12-year old snow board Star in her National Championships in 2007and 2008.
