I just wanted to say thank you for the amazing experience at the Atrium Cafe for the bridal shower I hosted on Sunday. Everyone was so nice and accommodating. The food and service was fantastic! All of our guests kept commenting on how pretty and elegant this venue was. I would absolutely recommend this to my friends/family, and have been to/hosted 2 bridal showers here over the past couple months. Thank you again so much for everything. ~MacKenzie

The food was wonderful. And I was quite impressed with your wait staff. [They] couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful. One of the guests commented that she wished we could have all of our showers at The Little Traveler! ~Peg
Thanks so much to you and your staff for making our shower so special. All I'm seeing is rave reviews on Facebook! I really appreciate all your time and effort and would choose Little Traveler again in a heartbeat. ~Lori

I just wanted to send you a note to thank you for arranging the wonderful tea party shower for us last Saturday. Everything was perfect.  The servers were courteous & very accommodating. They carefully explained each course for us.  Delightful!  The food & tea were wonderful.  Everyone raved about each course; the desserts were so good.


So many of our guests were very impressed with the beautiful decor of the venue, delicious food selection, amazing dessert, and excellent service. My daughter now has one more special memory to add to all of her previous memories of good times with great friends and family at The Little Traveler. ~The Happy Mother of the Bride
