July 2014 Member Spotlight!

Our July 2014 Member Spotlight is Diana Tamayo, owner of Café Ala Carte Tampa Bay/Orlando and The Gelato Carte. Hopefully you’ve been able to enjoy these services at various NACE meetings over the past 7 years! A NACE member since 2008, Diana has served as Hospitality Chair, Membership Chair, and Board Treasurer from 2010 to 2012. 

Café Ala Carte is a mobile, gourmet espresso, latte and cappuccino bar that is a welcome sight at any event! Whether a private celebration or corporate event, services always include delivery, a professional barista to serve made-to-order specialty coffees (hot or over ice), gourmet teas and hot chocolate, glassware or designer disposable cups, 7 nonalcoholic flavorings and assorted sweeteners, including sugar swizzle sticks and whipped cream. Packages can also include an assortment of liqueurs to add to specialty coffees or signature hot toddies. Services can be provided for intimate groups or conventions as large as 6,000 guests. 

The Gelato Carte features a pristine cart and attendant to serve many varieties of delicious, artisan gelato and sorbet, with small carts serving up to 6 flavors and large carts serving up to 9 flavors at a time. Delivery, a server, cups, spoons and napkins are always included. 

When both Café Ala Carte and The Gelato Carte are provided at the same event, Affogato Desserts are served at no additional charge. Loved in Europe for decades, Affogato Desserts are made with a scoop of gelato and a shot of espresso poured over it. It is topped with whipped cream, if desired. 

These delicious and unique services are a treat to be enjoyed by guests of all ages – and will leave a lasting impression! Visit for more information and photos of recent events. For quotes and availability, please call 813-514-0783 or email [email protected]
