Starting the morning is always better with a hearty breakfast, nourishing the body and focussing the mind for the day ahead. EatFirst and its best-in-class corporate caterers have made providing this delicious benefit to your team effortless. With their endless corporate catering menu options and easy, reliable online ordering, starting the day at the office has never been more enticing. Read on to learn more on breakfast catering ideas for your next morning meeting.

Where to start: how to organise a successful breakfast meeting

When you’re looking to cater for breakfast at the office, it’s important to consider the situation surrounding the breakfast.

  • Is this a team catch up?
  • Meeting with clients in the morning?
  • Breakfast before a training session or conference?

Answers to these questions will help you narrow down the options that you want to explore with us. For example, a small team catch up or an early morning meeting with clients may mean easy and mess free finger food, with tea and coffee, whereas a training session or conference may require a buffet style breakfast so that the team can fuel up to tackle the day ahead.

Special diet catering - not everyone's nuts for nuts

Before jumping to the menus, let's jump a hurdle that’s often overlooked; special dietary requirements. While it’s likely that you know somebody with an intolerance, it may surprise you to know that around half of our weekly orders contain special dietary modifications.

Before booking your office catering, do a quick investigation to discover how many (if any) of the audience have an intolerance or dietary requirement. That way, there will be no surprises on the day with people missing out on all the beautiful and fresh food we offer. We have a range of special dietary food and healthy options to suit all tastes and requirements. Whether it’s gluten free, dairy free catering, vegan or anything in-between, we have delicious catering packages for everyone.

Now we can get on to the best part, the food!

The best breakfast catering ideas

From pancakes to the classic continental, check out some of our best office breakfast catering ideas to help you get started.

Continental breakfast

A classic office breakfast catering menu consists of the most delicious finger food favourites. Think flaky pastries, Danishes, muffins, fresh fruit platters, bagels with cream cheese, tea and coffee. Providing a range of both hot & cold and sweet & savoury finger food options is strongly recommended, so there’s something to match everyone’s tastes and preferences.

These kinds of options are fantastic to kick off with as they are something you can easily serve and eat while you walk around mingling with the rest of the team or your clients. Freshness is key here and that’s why EatFirst source locally prepared and quickly delivered catering options to give you the best food experience.

Cater for a crowd - breakfast buffet catering

If you’re about to kick off a big training session or conference, it’s best to start by feeding the troops and a delicious and healthy breakfast buffet of made to order omelette, stunning fresh fruit and pressed coffee is a perfect solution. A hearty corporate breakfast menu boosts energy and concentration levels, as well as boosting cognitive function, improving mood and lowering stress levels. There are many larger function and event catering options available and thinking about the logistics associated with larger style catering can be confronting at first, but that’s why we’re here!

Everybody loves a classic big breakfast; scrambled eggs, crispy bacon, hash browns with mushrooms, spinach and crunchy toast. Yum! Serve up a hearty breakfast at your corporate breakfast event with a delicious plated meal.

Creative breakfast catering

Did someone say pancakes? A real morning treat, pancake and waffle stations are an innovative way to treat your team. Serve alongside fresh fruits, cream and drizzled with maple syrup, you really can’t go wrong. If you want both sweet and savoury options, a made on the spot omelette station is another great addition to the breakfast line up at your next office event.

EatFirst can cater for even the most health conscious of offices, and our breakfast menus are no exception. Indulge in delicious fresh berries with yoghurts, granola and toasted nuts. Or try bagels for a modern twist on classic breakfast rolls. There truly is something for every taste.

Plate it up with style

Depending on the audience, presentation can be elegant or workplace practical. For important meetings, training sessions and conferences, EatFirst can provide VIP ceramic platters, allowing an alluring display of your delicious breakfast options. For low-key team meetings where you want a hassle free clean up, we offer disposable boxes that are recyclable.
