Frequently asked questions about Adelaide catering
How much should I budget for Adelaide catering, per person?
Catering in Adelaide prices vary greatly depending on where you're ordering from and what meal you're serving. Here's a rough guide for prices on our catering menus to work out an approximate price per person.
Morning or afternoon tea generally costs about $10-$15 per person. It's on the higher end if you're serving warmer items and on the lower end for the more basic fruit and pastry-style service.
Lunch catering does cost a bit more as it's a full meal, so we'd recommend setting a budget of about $15-$20 per person. You can get more basic catering, like sandwich platters, salads or pizza in the $10-$15 range, but if you'd like any specialty cuisines like Thai, Sushi or Indian, expect it to be a bit pricier. While they can add an extra convenience, individually packaged items do tend to cost a bit more.
Grazing platters and finger foods tend to be one of the more budget-friendly catering options in Adelaide, and can cost you as low as $10-$15. This does depend on the quality of meats and cheeses you'd like to serve - they can get pricy!
