Having owned and operated The Barn on Mullan Catering and Events in Missoula for nearly three years and fulfilling over 2,500 mobile catered events in a span of 11-years, we as owners of Caffé Firenze, Patti and John Stevens, feel catering services and hosting special events is a niche we have filled and excel at. As such, we have decided to place a greater focus on this core competency. The meaning of life is to find your meaning.
Effective today we wish to notify the public that dinner services will be discontinued at Caffé Firenze. Breakfast and lunch services will continue as usual Tuesday through Sunday. Quality of life and a renewed focus on priorities are the driving factors in this decision.
The indelible memories of providing dinner to our guests for nearly 12 years will always be near and dear to our hearts. We have had the good fortune of meeting so many uniquely wonderful people, many of whom have become treasured friends. The gifts of life are the stories that are told and how they help us to grow as a person. In this business there has been nothing more rewarding than to meet a total stranger, share stories and then welcome them as regular guests. We will certainly miss opening a quality bottle of wine from Italy with our guests.
Retaining valued employees critical to the business and continuing to offer Italian themed breakfast and lunch services to our loyal patrons at Caffé Firenze are of the highest priority to us.
We apologize for the immediacy of this notice and any inconvenience that it may cause.
We will keep you apprised of planned next steps to rent Caffé Firenze for special events. We will continue to offer bar services and personalized cuisine menus. Our target market will be hosting private dinners, cocktail parties, weddings, reunions, celebration of life memorials, and corporate and community functions. Additionally, we will be offering special planned events such as pasta feeds and food pairings with wine, beer, distilled spirits.
