We've carefully vetted all the corporate catering options we list on our platform before sharing them with customers, and we also have a rating system on each listing.
You'll see a pink star with a number next to it on all our our catering listings when you search using your address. This is a user-generated rating (out of five) for how previous clients have found the service to be.
You'll have the option to sort from highest to lowest if you're hoping to get the best Melbourne caterer appear up top.
Just like we offer a range of cuisines in Melbourne, we also cater for a range of diets because we know not everything is going to suit everyone's needs.

We tag all common dietary restrictions on individual menu items for Melbourne too. As in the example below, you can see these fruit cups are gluten free (G), dairy free (D), vegetarian (V) and vegan (Vg).

When we first went into lockdown in NSW back in April 2020, EatFirst gave our staff a huge lift in morale. They were able to send to all our staff Nationwide the Easter DIY Hot Cross Buns. For some, it was a new experience in cooking, others kept their children entertained and the others just a relief to think of something else. Thanks, EatFirst for making my job easy
EatFirst’s home delivery service has been a fantastic service for Carsales. We’ve been able to keep our employees engaged, motivated and happy while we all work from home. The EatFirst team make the process super easy and the home delivery options are outstanding.
Can always trust EatFirst to make choices when I am rushed that are a hit with the team every time. Arrived hot and fresh, couldn't ask for more.
We have recently started using EatFirst for event catering and weekly fruit and milk deliveries. The EatFirst website is so easy to use and offers a wide range of catering choices. We especially love the festive packages on offer, such as the Easter Hotcross bun boxes. Rose, our account manager, is so positive and always ready to assist us when we need something. Thank you Rose and the team for everything you do 😊
Spotify has been using EatFirst for our staff lunches since Jan 2020, and we've recently added their range of pantry services. The wonderful team at EatFirst makes my life easier by offering a wide range of food for staff to enjoy, as well as keeping everything running smoothly. Thank you Mel, Michael & Leanne!
EatFirst is the easiest possible way to access a great variety of caterers around. It makes my job easier and allows me to have some fun choosing on the way. Thank you for all your help and support.
EatFirst is perfect for keeping our kitchen well-stocked with food & drinks. We love the wide selection of snacks and fresh fruit. Michael from EatFirst always goes out of his way to make sure we have what we need, and to recommend new products for our pantry. Highly recommend!
They have a great selection of suppliers, and their customer service staff is second to none! I have had nothing but great service from them time and time again.
Catering prices can vary depending on where you're ordering it from and what meal you're serving for your team or guests. As an estimate, here's a rough guide on what you can expect prices to work out to per person.
Morning or afternoon tea will likely cost between $10-$15 per person. It will be on the higher end if you're wanting to serve any hot items and on the lower end for the more basic fruit and pastry-style service.
Lunch catering will probably cost a bit more in comparison as it's a full meal, so we'd recommend setting a slightly higher budget of $15-$20 per person. If that's a bit tight, you can get more basic catering, like sandwich platters, salads or pizza in the $10-$15 range. However, if you'd like any specialty cuisines like Thai, Sushi or Indian, expect it to be a bit pricier.
Grazing platters and finger foods can cost you as low as $10-$15, but that's depending on the quality of meats and cheeses you'd like to serve - they can get pricy!
Yes. Most Melbourne caterers do require a minimum amount, but it does start quite low at about $50 for a good handful of suppliers. That's about what you'd spend to cater for five people, so the changes of you covering the minimum costs are high.
Sometimes; it depends on which caterer you order from. That said, there are more than 50 partners in our marketplace that don't charge anything for delivery of corporate catering in Melbourne. And that includes food options like Italian, Middle Eastern, salads, Mexican, Indian, Chinese, Vietnamese and plenty of traditional catering options.
