"Yoni! Thanks to you i had the privelage of being a guest at my own simcha! From the deliciously robust Italian themed family Friday night dinner( the gnocchi with wild mushrooms was particularly praiseworthy) to the generous and varied Kiddush fare (your meatballs were an all around hit). And then the lunch which just kept the good stuff coming (the salad bar was perfectly executed with something for everyone. And that brisket......) and forget about your outrageous pretzel challahs!!!!! Your professional manner and calm demeanor was most reassuring. I didn't sweat for even a second, because i knew everything would be taken care of. And it was. You listened to my requests and concerns and just made it happen, giving our family a most memorable and delicious Bar Mitzvah Shabbat! Thank You!!!" - Rachel H.
"Our Organization used Take a Break Catering for an upscale cocktail reception for supporters. The food was elegantly presented, and incredibly well received. Everything tasted great - and the cookies were fabulous! Yoni was easy to work with, and created a menu that fit both the tone of my event and my budget. I highly recommend Take a Break!" -Amy G.
"Yoni is an excellent chef and very easy to work with! He catered my bridal shower and the food was absolutely delicious and presentation beautiful. People are still asking me for his number for their next event. He had so many great suggestions for a menu, that it was much less stressful than it could have been. He also made my wedding cake, which was gorgeous and so good on top of that. Highly recommend! We'll be using take a break again for sure." -Gillian K.

"Dear Yoni and the Take a Break Crew:
We just wanted to write and tell you how awesome your catering was. The engagement party you catered was fabulous, from start to finish.
First of all, you were a pleasure to deal with. You responded promptly and efficiently to every phone call and email. You were so accommodating and creative with the menu and worked well within our budget.
The Salads were fresh and delicious. We received many compliments from friends and family, regarding both food and presentation. The room was beautifully and thoughtfully set up, with great attention to every detail. Also, you brewed excellent coffee, which was greatly appreciated by many, especially on a suddenly chilly day. Even in winter, your fruit was fresh and juicy, and also beautifully presented.
Many thanks again and we look forward to calling on you for future parties and to recommending you to our friends and family" - Patty and Sam B.

"Where should I begin?! Take a Break is professional, flexible, caring, and courteous. The chef, Yoni, is the most talented chef I have ever worked with. He knew how to cook anything and everything I asked for and on top of that each dish tasted better than any dish I have ever had. The presentation was also impeccable. Would I go with Take a Break again? WITHOUT A DOUBT!" - Sheila H.
"Yoni was our personal chef for an amazing dinner cooked just for us and some friends in New York yesterday, in honor of my husband's special birthday. The delectable 4 course dinner, prepared for us at our friends' house, featured International Kosher Wine Pairing. The food was all fresh and delicious, cooked just right, with elegant presentation. Good food, good wine, good friends, great ambiance! A perfect way to celebrate. We would highly recommend Yoni. If you live in the NJ/NY areas you should definitely check him out!" - Mindy D.
