Allspice was established in April 1994 as a café under the name Spice of Life offering a variety of fresh, modern cuisine. Over the years the name may have changed but the heart and soul of the business have remained constant. Rich and Liz Vizard are a local Arlington family who offer hassle free hospitality with homemade food from around the world for every occasion. The Allspice team is a tight-knit group of foodies. We couldn’t do it without the dedicated effort of these folks, whose everyday teamwork delivers phenomenal customer service and fabulous food to our catering clients.

We believe in making delicious food and offering outstanding customer service. Full service catering is available for all events, anytime. The menus on our website are just some of the ideas we have cooking and we are happy to work with clients and create custom menus. Our team is experienced with everything from lunch for five to a reception for 500.
