Canapé Catering Coffs Coast

Canapé catering provides you a “wow factor” like no other.  Suitable to impress at any event, it is the most popular style of Wedding catering.  Canapé catering allows guests to mingle and socialise among themselves without formal seating. Your guests will enjoy a creative and vast menu of seasonally selected delicious canapés, designed with modern inspiration and techniques.

Using local fresh ingredients wherever possible, our passionate chefs hand craft your canapés at your reception, making sure each one is perfect. They are served by our professional wait staff who move around the venue making sure all of your guests are tempted.

In addition to a canapé service, our grazing boards can be served upon guest’s arrival at your reception, so they are immediately treated like VIP’s. If you prefer we can incorporate a Canapé Catering Service as the appetiser service for another style of main course catering.  Naturally we can tailor the service to match your needs, so Contact Us for a free quote or more information.
