About The Travelling Café:

The travelling cafe white logoTravelling Café’s services are all designed with a truly global experience in mind. Our customized food experiences can transport you and your guests to a place you have never been, or to a place you long to return.

Our prepared meals and private catering events can be cooked in your home or delivered to your door.  Our cooking classes can be brought to your home or held in our culinary studio in Pittsboro, NC.

What’s with the name? Why the “Travelling Café?” Is there an actual café?  

There was a café. “Café Chartier” had a unique European Bistro menu, locally roasted coffees, and killer dessert creations. Besides the tempting smells, a cool mix of music was always in the air (often live), and we promoted the work of many local artists and causes within our community.

Our physical location has closed, and we have travelled far and wide in between.  Now the café travels through our mobile chef servicers – sharing food and travel experiences, promoting music, art, culture and philanthropy, and extending hospitality wherever we go.

Our food experiences and cooking classes are designed to transport you to the place from which they come.  Incidentally, there are two ‘l’s in our name – no, it’s not a typo. It’s the European spelling.
