Test Our name blends the origins of our Dutch and Canadian founders. They launched Tulips & Maple in 1991 and worked day and night to realize their vision of showing Ottawa what catering really can be.

Since our modest beginnings in Manotick over two decades ago, the values instilled by the original ‘Tulips’ & ‘Maple’ of honesty and passion, accomplishment and learning, guide our team in our quest to deliver delicious excellence and excitement for every event.

Fast-forward to today- still the best off-premise catering you can get in Ottawa. We expanded into the Kingston area with Tulips and Maple the Art of Catering in 2016. In 2017 we added our Maple Café brand offering grab and go and daily food service at the Ingenium Museums in Ottawa and in 2018 we acquired our very own venue with the partnership of the Nepean Sportsplex.

T&M- The Art of Catering

We have grown to be regarded as the “go to” company for premium, full service and off-premise catering, featuring high quality food, creative and compelling menus, eye-catching presentation and superior service standards that you can count on! We do everything from chairs and tents to linens and cutlery. We take care of your bar and staff all the while making sure the food is exquisite and catered to your tastes.

So passionate are we about adding the “wow” factor to an event, we have a trademark on the word “Catertaining”, a term that describes our unique brand of added interactive catering. Just envision jugglers and stilt walkers passing you food, a wall of spoons with tiny canapes on them and elegant presentations of platters decorated in line with your theme. We will do anything we can do to make you go “wow.”

Maple Café

Tulips & Maple is now expanding into the concession world with Maple Café, our newest brand offering fresh to-go options and food service from burgers to salads made fresh daily onsite. We hope to see more Maple Café’s pop up all around Ottawa. Our first partnership is currently with all the Ingenium Museums and we are just building our newest one at the Nepean Sportsplex. You can even organize your next birthday party or hockey team gathering with Maple Café. Check us out on Facebook!
