What our customers actually want for breakfast
Breakfasts and morning teas are by-far our most popular catering category here at EatFirst. I've been helping our customers organise perfect breakfasts and morning teas for a few years now, and there are a few items that I quickly came to realise are an absolute must-have.
The combination of both sweet and savoury baked goods (think danishes and cakes alongside sausage rolls and savoury muffins) has always created a well-balanced spread. Of course, alongside the more indulgent menu items, I always recommend having healthy options too. Fruit platters or skewers and yoghurt cups are my go-tos.
Must-have items on any work breakfast or morning tea menu
Must-have items on any work breakfast or morning tea menu
The key to the perfect breakfast menu is making sure you have something for everyone. Remember... Some like it sweet, some like it savoury. Some prefer to indulge, some prefer to keep things healthy.
We'd recommend having something from each of these categories for a well-balanced breakfast menu for your team or meeting.
- Fruit: Fresh strawberries, grapes, melon and citrus fruits
- Sweet treats including danishes, cupcakes, muffins and banana bread
- Savoury items like ham-and-cheese croissants and mini bacon-egg rolls
- Healthy eats: Yogurt cups, acai bowls, hard-boiled eggs and protein balls
- Tea and coffee, because everyone loves their morning caffeine hit
- Fresh juices for those who don't drink tea or coffee
Don't forget to include a few options that cater to common dietary restrictions. Make sure you have items without any dairy or meat for vegetarians, vegans and those who are lactose intolerant.
Also get some gluten-free breads for any toasts or breakfast sandwiches, along with some sweet treats so no one is left out.

How EatFirst can EatFirst help with your breakfast catering
We're a nation-wide catering solution so you'll get on-time delivery, no matter which city in Australia you're in.
Our online platform makes ordering office catering a breeze. Add orders, save and reorder your favourites in the click of a button. View and manage transactions with ease.
We offer helpful guides and advice from our Australia-based customer service team so you can get exactly what you need.
Don't forget to cater for your team's dietary requirements
All of our menus allow the option to filter by common dietary requirements and allergens.
Individual menu items will also note whether they're safe to order. A symbol will only appear when the item is safe to eat for the noted need.
If you're unsure, or would like some ideas on what to order, our customer care team and account managers are happy to help you craft the perfect, diet-friendly menu.
Are breakfast boxes available as a catering option?
Yes! Many of our caterers offer single-serve packages that can make it easy to either take back to your desk, serve at an event without sit-down tables or are ideal for avoiding clean-up.
Some examples include:
- Sydney: Flavours Catering, Le Box and Lunch in a Box
- Melbourne: Brisk Catering and Your Private Chef
- Adelaide: Daily Planet Australia and South Terrace Catering
- Brisbane: Etto Catering and Say Cheese
- Perth: Cosmic Coffee and Catering, Fresh Convenience Catering and Temptations Catering
Where do you offer breakfast and tea catering?
We work with hundreds of local suppliers right across mainland Australia, and offer plenty of choices in major cities, including Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.
Unfortunately we don't have any partners in Tasmania for breakfast catering at this time, but we'd still be happy to give you advice on what to order or how much if you need it!
How early can breakfast catering be delivered?
We have partners that can deliver as early as 6am, but options will be limited that early. By 7am, you'll have plenty of choice!
When you're browing in our marketplace, you can select a date and time that you need your delivery by. Only the suppliers that will be able to get to you that early will appear.
What vegan items can I order for breakfasts and teas?
Breakfast is so much more than bacon and eggs!
If you do eat dairy, breakfast rolls with halloumi will even make your meat-eating friends jealous. Pastries (made without butter) can also add a sweet or savoury bite to breakfast.
Or, opt for a DIY smashed avo platter, where you can add on (or leave out!) as many toppings as you'd like on your toast.
Chickpea puddings and coconut yogurts can also add a healthy option.
