FAQs for Christmas Catering Melbourne

Do Melbourne caterers offer special menus for Christmas?

A bunch of our Victorian suppliers are offering special menus for Christmas this year, but they're still perfecting them. Here's a sample of what they were offering last year. (But of course, all of our regular menus are also available).

  • Appetite Catering: Hot and cold Christmas lunches with classic menu items or BBQ meals, plus a selection of of desserts including mini tarts, cupcakes and raw brownie bliss balls
  • Black Truffle Catering: Seasonal buffets with roast turkey, ham and creamy gnocchi mains with sides like roast vegetables, grain salads and a selection of desserts
  • Blahnik: Baked Christmas treats including traditional mince tarts, “Christmas trees” (conical croissants filled with vanilla custard), gingerbread men, raspberry croissants and festive cronuts
  • Bunji Catering: Multi-course holiday meals with options for vegetarians or festive lunch boxes with holiday sandwiches
  • IQ Catering: With the classics on hand, you can also order barbecued Christmas feasts, including beef burgers, lamb and rosemary sausages, satay chicken skewers and sides to match
  • Little Cupcakes Bakery: A selection of Christmas cupcakes with vanilla, Belgian chocolate, red velvet and salted caramel flavours

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

They sure do! We've made it easy to find items catering to dietary requirements on our menus.

Keep an eye out for the green symbols G, D, V and Vg next to to menu items. G = Gluten Free, D = Dairy Free, V = Vegetarian and V= Vegan.

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

The earlier the better, but if you have left it late - try not to worry. There's probably still something available.

Some of our caterers can turn around an order in as little as 24 hours if they aren't booked out for the day. All of our caterer pages, which also display menus, note the turnaround time at the top right.

You'll see a clock symbol and the number of hours you're required to order in advance listed there.

Can catering be delivered anywhere in Melbourne?

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

Is catering available on Christmas Day in Melbourne?

We understand that not every Sydney business can close on public holidays, but unfortunately, that does mean catering options are likely going to be very limited.

So if you do have staff working on that day and want to treat them to something special you will still have options. They just may be quite limited. 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.

Is catering available on Christmas Eve in Melbourne?

Yes, but your options are likely going to be limited - even in Melbourne. While Christmas Eve isn't a public holiday, like many businesses, some caterers do shut down during the holiday season when offices they usually feed aren't as busy.

Plus, Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday in 2023. We'd recommend booking early to avoid disappointment and to make sure you're able to lock in an order.
