Where EatFirst has catering partners
Whether pairing with wines and beers on a Friday afternoon or served as part of a grand holiday spread, there’s plenty of occasions that gourmet platters are perfectly suited for.
But, not all platters are created equally. That’s why we’ve personally vetted every caterer, restaurant and cafe that’s on the EatFirst platform. Our goal is to make sure we’re only presenting the best of the best so that whatever you serve up for your Brisbane team or at a corporate event is sure to impress.

FAQs about Brisbane platter catering
Do Brisbane caterers serve special diets, like vegetarians, gluten-free and dairy-free?
Yes! On each of our Brisbane menus, we'll label whether dishes are suitable for common dietary needs, including:
You can also use the food filters are the top of our marketplace search to have only suitable caterers appear in the list of results.
What is usually on a fruit platter?
A fruit platter typically includes a selection of fresh, seasonal fruits. Some of the fruits you’ll commonly find on a simple fruit platter are watermelon, grapes, blueberries, kiwi fruit, melons, pineapple, and strawberries. The specific fruits on your platter will vary depending on the season, the caterer, and your preferences.
Are special-diet platters available?
If you need items that are gluten or dairy free too, this can easily be arranged either by ordering items that naturally don't contain either (sushi and rice paper rolls are great!) or by giving us a call.
How much food do I need when ordering platters?
Wherever possible, our menus will note how many people a platter is best suited for. You can see this noted on the menu item itself, or within an expanded description of an item.
If it's not mentioned, we usually recommend 1.5 sandwiches per person for sandwich and wrap platters. Sushi platters with average-sized pieces would usually have about 10 pieces per person.
For events, or when platters are meant more for grazing than as a meal, it can get a bit tricky. We generally recommend:
- Less than an hour: 2 items per person
- One-two hours: 3-4 items per person
- Two hours or more: 5-6 items per person
Still not sure? Get in touch with our friendly customer care team and tell us the size of the group and what sort of food you'd like and we can help you with portions.
What sort of foods can go on gluten free share platters?
Loads! Other than the bread and biscuits, most items that are usually found on share platters and grazing boards are gluten free. Simply replace any bread and biscuits with gluten free options or vegetables that work well with dips and cheeses, such as carrots, celery and capsicum.
