About Us


Our Humble Beginnings

Founded in 2013, Cricket Cafe & Catering began as a simple corporate breakfast and lunchtime cafeteria in Waltham, Massachusetts. As Head Chef Drew Blanckenberg's cooking skills continued to gain praise from his loyal customers, an opportunity for expansion was quickly recognized. Come September 2017, Cricket Cafe & Catering will be transitioning into a brand-new, luxurious venue with a full-service bar & dinner service, but will continue to offer gourmet meals and catering services at a reasonable price. Stay tuned!
