Our iconic Citroen H van, Nicole, is in completely original and operational conditional, rescued from a French barn and reinvented as a mobile cafe. Wherever we pitch up, we transform the backdrop with our quirky and picturesque identity to set the scene for your occasion, providing a timeless experience rooted in a bygone era.

With specific refreshments, personalised and themed to suit your event, Tarte au Citroen is an event that can come to your venue. All of our offerings are developed with a passion for quality food, hand baked and home-made with love by artisan producers and served to you by our professional and friendly baristas.


our ethos


We believe that food is a precious commodity and that it should be enjoyed to the full. That’s why great taste and beautiful presentation are key to everything we do. We take a lot of care to make everything as good as it can possibly be and avoid anything mass produced wherever possible. We even source our great coffee locally!

We can take care of any dietary requirements and we are always happy to chat about your event and ideas no matter what stage of planning you are at. All of our services are brought to you with our friendly and organised staff to take care of your guests. 


“Today blew me away with what you provided . Absolutely out of this world. Thankyou so much.. the best party food I have ever seen & your cakes were divine & your coffee. Would love to do something at Hetty's with you one day.”

— Emma Atkinson, Owner of Hetty's Tea Room, Froghall Wharf, Staffordshire

Kate and 'Nicole' were a brilliant part of our event. They offered a vintage, homely feel and produced delicious coffee and cakes for affordable prices. I will definitely keep Tarte Au Citroen in mind for future events, and would recommend their services to anyone looking for that added element of class at their event. Definite thumbs up!.”

— Martin, Under the Hill Festival, Evesham


Kate produced an amazing Afternoon Tea for our 40th Wedding Anniversary celebration for 90 people in our local village hall. She helped us plan a memorable occasion with many special details.

And, of course ‘Nicole’ added a unique touch of style to the occasion!

Nothing was too much trouble, including delightful vegan treats and special baskets for the children, which they loved.  The choice and variety was stunning and we had many lovely compliments from our guests. It all helped us to create wonderful, unforgettable memories for our family and friends. Thank you, Kate, it was a triumph!

Everybody absolutely loved them, the food was amazing and we could not believe the detail and extra touches.


I will be recommending you to others and we will definitely be using you in the future.
