Hi, Katherine here. Words are not my forte, but great food is! We are corporate catering specialists. With us you get garnished home-style food platters delivered straight to your office.
Definitely Not The New Kid on the Block! No, not at all. Considering the business is 52-years old (we being the third owners) with pretty much the same menu since! One of our cooks has been here for 26-years. We are also a family business where mothers and children have worked for us for 3 generations and on the other side of the counter we have just started on our 5th generation of customers. We have lots of regular customers, quite a large clientele actually but of course always welcome new business.
"What kind of food?" Personally I call it old-fashioned. Others say it is traditional, retro, and others again say it is just plain wholesome. And fair enough. We stay away from the fast, greasy, mass-produced cafe-type food like paninis and the sort. Rather ours are all home-cooked, made-on-the-premises savouries, club sandwiches, cakes, and even ordinary cheese + onion sandwiches and plain egg sandwiches. These are the types of food our customers ask for. It is kind of like going back-to-basics.
Totally Customised A lot of people have no idea how to go about ordering food. They ring up and say "do you do catering, do you deliver" and "I've got 20-ppl to order for but I have no idea what to order". That's ok. We usually start by emailing you our menu. Then you choose exactly what you want. A lot of caterers have set menus, eg. $13 will get you a sandwich, a savoury and a piece of fruit. But with us, we are flexible and you can individually choose whatever you like from the menu. Then again, some customers just tell us to choose! Like others we also have finger foods and buffets.
From Tiny to HUGE Some are surprised that we do huge jobs for crowds of 400 people as well as catering for as few as 3.
Taste for YourselfYou may already have had our food at our shop/coffee lounge, possibly even many times without realising that we do catering too. We have sandwich bar like Subways. We call it Select-a-Sandwich, but we started way before Subways came to NZ. Want Gluten-free, vegan etc - no problem, just ask. If you haven't tried our food, simply come to our shop/coffee lounge. Most of our catering selection can be found in the shop as well (but shop and catering sizes are different).
Do we respond quickly? Yes!
