FAQs for Christmas Catering Sydney

Do Sydney caterers offer special menus for Christmas?

Yes! For some, Christmas just isn't Christmas without a glazed ham or fresh fruit-topped pavlova. We get it!

It's a bit early for the 2023 menus, but these suppliers offered special menus for Christmas last year. (But of course, regular menus are also available).

  • Cakes2U: A selection of Christmas cakes and desserts including red velvet and mud cakes, festive cupcakes (including vegan and gluten-free options), fruit cakes

  • Wow! Catering: Roast turkey, glazed ham and poached prawn sliders, seafood platters with Balmain bugs, Sydney rock oysters, smoked salmon, sesame soy tuna and prawns

Do Sydney caterers supply vegetarian/vegan/gluten-free/dairy-free food for Christmas?

They sure do! And we've made it easy to find which items cater to dietary requirements on our menu.

When you're reading any of our menus, keep an eye out for the green symbols G, D, V and Vg like on the example below. G = Gluten Free, D = Dairy Free, V = Vegetarian and V= Vegan.

How far in advance do we need to order catering for Christmas?

The earlier the better, but if you have left it late - try not to worry.

Some caterers can turn around an order in just 24 hours if they aren't booked out. All of our caterer page, which will also display a menu, will note the turnaround time at the top right.

There's a clock symbol and the number of hours you're required to order in advance listed there. Sometimes specific items do require a longer lead-time, especially anything that's slow-cooked or special for a holiday, but this will be listed on the page as well.

Can catering be delivered anywhere in Sydney?

Yes! If you’re having your Christmas party outside of the office, as long as you’re in the Sydney area you’ll be able to get the order delivered to your venue of choice.

Is catering available on Christmas Eve in Sydney?

Yes, but options may be limited - even in Sydney. Technically, Christmas Eve isn't a public holiday so you should still be able to find a caterer. However like many businesses, some caterers do shut down during the holiday season when offices aren't as busy.

Christmas Eve does fall on a Sunday in 2023, so caterers that serve corporate clients could be closed that day too. Book early to avoid disappointment and to make sure you're able to lock in an order.

Is catering available on Christmas Day in Sydney?

Christmas Day does land on Monday in 2023, but it's always a public holiday, so many caterers are likely to be closed. We understand that not every Sydney business can close on public holidays.

So if you do have staff working on that day and want to treat them to something special you will still have options. Alternatively, your best bet may be to opt for items like sweet or savoury pastries, cakes and muffins that can be delivered a day or two in advance.
