Set-Up / Clean-Up: Any catering that takes place at either the AGNS or Halifax Central Library will be subject to a minimum fee which will be applied to cover the delivery, set-up & clean-up of the catering.  

Delivery: Depending on where you or your event is located, our delivery fees vary. Generally, we will charge to deliver the catering to you and set up everything to our standards. Likewise, if you would prefer we can always schedule a time to pick everything up.  Please contact us for information specific to your event. 

Servers: If your event requires servers, or an experienced barista to prepare a la carte items at our espresso bar during one of your events, we charge $20/hour per server. Cocktail-style events may require a minimum amount of servers according to Pavia’s serving standards. For events where Pavia is supplying alcohol, we are pleased to provide professional and experience bartenders.

Cancellations require 36 hours notice. Custom orders or anything from our hors-d’oeuvres section (hot or cold) require 72 hours’ notice.  Items cancelled after this time will be subject to a charge (which may be up to the entire quoted amount) upon cancellation.
