PickNic’s Catering & Fine Foods History
PickNic’s Catering and Fine Foods Saskatoon has taken many twists and turns to become what it is today!
PickNic’s was opened in its original location in the CIBC building on 21st Street East Saskatoon in April of 2003, operating under the name PickNic’s Bakery and Bistro. In 2004 we moved to our second location at 212-22nd Street East where we operated as PickNic’s Restaurant and Fine Pastries for 5 years. Now in our present location (sans dine-in restaurant), 210 33rd Street West, Saskatoon we have turned our focus to Saskatoon event catering and wedding cakes for Saskatoon and area.
PickNic’s Catering and Fine Foods is proud to offer a wide variety of affordable and delectable foods for your next luncheon, staff party, convention or wedding! We also provide a range of tantalizing desserts and beautiful wedding cakes carefully prepared by our creative pastry team.
Contact us to book your next catered event or special cake made with the utmost care!
