The appeal of dining in Off The Record, The Exclusive Café is as much about the food as it is the chemistry between Matt and Nikki Thompson. The Café has become my second office. The atmosphere created by Nikki and Matt is so welcoming that I, and many employees at the Pima County Sheriff's Department, spend much of the morning visiting and doing business while enjoying daily menu items or the morning special. Matt and Nikki, through their creativeness and professional training, put together menu items (combining foods I would never dream of), that I would not try anywhere else. I have thoroughly enjoyed everything I have tried. They have definitely stretched my palate. I cannot end this testimonial without mentioning the deliciously exquisite desserts presented in The Café. I challenge anyone to find tastier desserts. The Café is Nikki and Matt - their personality and passion for food will keep me coming back. Try a meal and a dessert at The Café and - Dine Well.

2 Hearts 1 Kitchen is a one-stop shop for all my feasting needs. They have catered with
delicious Mexican banquet quality food and made a few cakes for me, all at a
great price. Everyone comments about how delicious everything is. In addition
to delicious food, Matt & Nikki are excellent servers and truly a pleasure
to be around. Thanks!!
Kristen and Matt are fantastic! After tasting many of their dishes I can say without hesitation that their food is consistently delicious and beautiful! Their catering service is also so hassle-free, they take care of everything and they're always thinking two steps ahead to make sure everything goes off without a hitch! They really are able to take threads of an idea and create an amazing evening. I would gladly recommend them to anyone for their next event!
I have used 2 Hearts 1 Kitchen for three events now, and all three were amazing experiences! The cakes have always been so yummy, and creatively decorated. The food was delicious. Nikki and Matt provide great customer service and have never flawed with times, etc. Prices are reasonable and for my upcoming wedding will not go anywhere else but 2 Hearts 1 Kitchen for my wedding cake!!!!!
Pleasant visit aside-nothing beats their steamy chai latte with a yummy brownie on the side (with nuts for me, of course). Always happy help me out with a toasted sandwich or scrumptious omelet too! Really great to know they're just right down the hall if I need anything...
If anybody could take over the world with food, it'd be you two!
Kristen and Matt always provide superior catering and food service. Their use of fresh, seasonal ingredients makes for innovative cuisine and they never fail to create a remarkable meal.
You graced our department kitchen in September 2012, and breakfast and lunch has never been better! The rock star husband-wife team, offer a new menu every week ranging from Mexican to Hawaiian to classic American. I have tried many new dishes for the first time and enjoyed them. The food is always fresh and presented beautifully. I look forward to each day to see what delicious meals they will be offering. Thank you Off The Record, The Exclusive Café!
Kristen made a cake for my baby shower and It was the most beautiful cake! Her attention to detail is impeccable! The cake matched the color of my daughter's nursery and she made animals that matched the decor in the room. Her buttercream frosting is the best I've ever had! If you want a cake that looks as good as it tastes - look no further!
I have worked with Kristen and Matt Thompson on multiple occasions. The first I has requested a rather difficult cake. I wanted a pink and brown Chanel purse shaped cake. This was for my sisters 21st birthday. Not only did they deliver, they exceeded my expectations. The cake was gorgeous, my sister thought it was a real Chanel Purse! The cake was chocolate with a raspberry preserve filling, unlike cakes I have ordered from other places, theirs was moist and airy. The cake was just as delicious as it looked. It was the perfect surprise for a shop-a-holic sister. I can only imagine how creative they can be with their cake making skills. I will use them for all the baby showers, bachelorette parties and any other event I may need a cake for.
The second time I used "2 Hearts 1 Kitchen" was for a Shrimp Boil that I hosted. The shrimp boil was in a downtown parking lot, with no kitchen and limited power supply. Kristen and Matt rolled with the punches and were able to cook shrimp (head on and all the fixings) for 300 people on propane burners. They came early to set up cocktail tables full of veggie starters with a wonderful assortment of dips. Then right on time they had shrimp, corn, and potatoes being dumped onto newspaper covered tables. They kept the shrimp coming, piping hot, for all the guests to enjoy. Besides the pleasure of working with them at the event the pre-event was just as great. They were extremely thorough with the pricing of food and labor. Kristen checked with me on every little detail from the size of the shrimp down to the type of dish to serve the dips on. I will, hands down, use them for all my catering needs.
Nikki and Matt are an amazing team both in the kitchen and beyond! They've made amazing & creative cakes for my baby shower and my little girl's birthday. Not only are the cakes delicious but they look incredible as well! They've also catered a few events that I've been to and everything was absolutely delicious! They are incredibly accommodating and really go above and beyond to please their customers. I ALWAYS recommend them to any friends or family looking for an event to be catered or an amazing cake for any occasion! In turn those that I have referred to Nikki & Matt have always given glowing reviews and recommend them to their friends as well! It's always a pleasure to work with them!
I had Nikki make a birthday cake for my step-mother's 50th birthday party and everyone absolutely loved it! Moreover, I know no two people who are a better team than Nikki and Matt. Their passion for food is evident through their incredible work and devotion to their customers. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to ensure they will give 100 percent to their service and delivery and blow your mind with their creations in the kitchen.
Nikki and Matt made my graduation cake and also a bridal shower cake for me. Their creativity was amazing and it was honestly the best cakes I have ever had. I would recommend their cakes to anyone.
Thank you to Nikki and Matt for a simple yet beautiful wedding cake. It was exactly what we asked for. The flavors were exceptional as well as their customer service. We will definitely use them in the future.
