What people are saying...

"Jordan and Todd—

Patty and I would like to thank you again for allowing us to host our son’s wedding rehearsal dinner at Happy Girl Kitchen on July 28.  The evening was a huge success.  The atmosphere and staff were wonderful, and the food was excellent.  I had many compliments on how great the food was with many diehard meat eaters claiming, “who knew vegetarian food could be this good.”  Several people from the party went back on Saturday for lunch and Sunday for brunch.

Again, thank you for all you did to make it a special night for the party.

"After many delicious breakfast trips (I always ask her to stop and pick me up some jams when she’s in Pacific Grove), my wife and I decided to have our rehearsal dinner at Happy Girl Kitchen. Everything was absolutely delicious and filling. Two years later, our friends and family still talk about how good the whole night was, especially the food - even my father, an obligate carnivore who normally wouldn’t be caught eating an all-vegetarian meal. The atmosphere was cozy yet comfortable, the music was great, and the service was impeccable. Jordan made us feel like family, and it was the perfect venue for the day before our special day! Working with Happy Girl Kitchen was the least stressful part about planning our wedding - Jordan was always prompt in getting back to us and worked with us to make sure everything was awesome - she even arranged for a great DJ to play records throughout the evening.
