The only thing better than Valpo's Outdoor Dining is this!
Nothing beats the memorable experience of a catering event by one of the remarkable restaurants that make up the Valparaiso Restaurants. And now, through the collective community approach of all these restaurants working together, catering has never been easier or less time-consuming.

Don Quijote

Make your party or event a unique experience to remember with a paella and tapas party from Don Quijote. With full menu options, Chef Carlos can bring a touch of the Mediterranean to your event of under 100 people. The full menu of wine and cocktails come with a license, so planning a great experience has never been easier. Visit our site, or even better, stop by for a glass of wine with Carlos!


For years, people from around NWI have requested having Radius cater their Christmas parties, business meetings, and special events. Unfortunately, NWI's perennial " Restaurant of the Year" had limited space and a full house nearly 24/7. But owner Chris Pavlou's insatiable drive to please his customers discover a solution by opening Maple + Bacon, where Radius complete menu of food & bar can be served with inhouse catering. Parties & Business Events can rent private rooms with Radius award-winning menu.

Belle Estanni Bake Shoppe -Smoketown Blues

Water always finds the way, and so does smoke! The story of how Belle Estanni Bake Shoppe found its way to downtown Valpo is a good one, and it happened because people in Valpo couldn't get enough of Chef Mireya and her crowd-pleasing baked goods. Mireya began selling her baked goods at Smoketown Blues and the rest is history. Fresh baked goods & Southernwood cuisine. But now people can have their cake and eat it too! Belle Estanni offers catering, and private party options.

Maple + Bacon

Maple+Bacon has quickly become an overnight sensation for breakfast fans in Valpo, but its origins are rooted in its sister restaurant, Radius-Valpo. According to owner Chris Pavlou, we always wanted to have a venue for private parties at Radius, but were limited due to Radius's location and menu. M+B is like Radius but offers customers a wide range of food offerings, which makes it the perfect vessel for in-house catering & private parties. You can host your party in our Maple room, outdoor dining, or even our liquor bar and coffee bar....and we can serve Radius' menu too!
