On the Rye is Cambridge’s next great catering service that will provide unbelievably high-quality cuisine. We will offer gourmet sandwiches, soups, salads, and "forget-me-nots" for your event or party.


With “scratch cooking” as our core value, we offer traditional comfort foods as well as health conscious choices. We offer plant-based, vegetarian, keto and paleo friendly foods along with traditional fare. We use seasonal and local ingredients when available, allowing us to support local farms and producers in our community. 


Our soups are made daily with our house-made stocks and components. 

Our sandwiches are made with fresh ingredients served on artisanal bread. Artisan breads are made in house using the freshest grains and ingredients . 


Our services offer boater/vacationer fare. Online orders and pickup available as early as 6:30 am. 


On site catering events are available Monday-Sunday. We can accommodate private parties such as company holiday celebrations, private business meetings, as well as family gatherings. We invite you to consider holding your next event with us. We can collaborate with you to develop a custom menu for you and your guests. 

“We love spending our time in the kitchen. It does not matter what the task may be. May it be near a hot stove building a pot of soup, making bread dough or sifting through baby salad greens. Taking care of food and ingredients, and preparing them for others gives us purpose. On The Rye, like many, subscribe to the “clean eating” concept which  is performed best with scratch cooking.”
