In 2006, Memoirs was a one-man company registered by a cook with a moped and 500 dollars in the bank. Today Memoirs has been voted Honolulu’s Best Caterer across the board and is recognized around the world as a symbol of Hawaiian Hospitality.
Supporting our team, other caterers and event partners means we grow together as an industry. We believe the best gatherings are outside in our nani mokupuni (beautiful island.) Together we preserve the land and support those growing food, fishing and raising animals in the right way. We welcome you to explore our site and look forward to serving you.
Catering was a rouge industry back then. Top talent didn’t pursue catering but that’s not the case anymore. We see a new generation who love hospitality while being outside. Problem solving in unchartered conditions is rewarding because you can take those skill sets anywhere.

Memoirs catered a closing banquet for a UH conference at the beginning of August. They were amazing! I selected Memoirs as the caterer be cause the very first time I spoke to Thomas, I felt confident that they would work with me for a successful event within our budget and other constraints
We would highly suggest Memoirs for any catering even t – wedding and/or corporate events as they are professional, engaging, they work with y our budget, and are just an all-around pleasure to work with. Their responsiveness and flexibility and overall coo rdination assistance was impressively punctual and proactive, and in the lead up to our w edding week we were significantly less stressed given the thoroughness they’d put in durin g the planning process. As for the food and service, Memoirs far exceeded our expectations and we got comment and after comment from family and friends afterwards. We live in Hawai’i and did quite a bit of research o n caterers, which is a giant business here. Dragging ourselves around meetings and tastings for weeks was hard, but the decision was unbelievably easy. The professionalism of this company is top notch. We knew we wanted to get the best of the best and catering was high on our list of priorities . They did not disappoint from the appetizers, the custom cocktails, the professionalis m of the servers and the specialized menu. We highly recommend Memoirs and will continue to use them for future functions. Thank you for making our Christmas party a huge success and most memorable occasion!
