- Seafood: Cold seafood options like prawns, oysters, and salmon can elevate your buffet to the next level.
- Fruit: A colourful fruit platter can be both a refreshing side and a sweet ending to the meal.
- Desserts: Cold desserts such as fruit tarts, cheesecake, pavlova, and chocolate mousse are excellent picks for a cold buffet.
