Corporate lunch catering in CC?

Trying to plan a casual lunch at my office - gourmet sandwiches and yummy desserts? Any great ideas of a place that delivers?

    i just came from grocery shopping at the reading terminal market, where i noticed a sign saying they cater. i'm not sure how that's done, but you might check out their website, http://www.readingterminalmarket.org/...

      MANNA Catering. Check them out at http://www.mannacatering.org/

      They are wonderful, will work with your requests, and all profits go directly to MANNA, the Philadelphia non-profit that delivers care and hope by nourishing people at acute nutritional risk due to a life-threatening illness in the Delaware Valley.

      I strongly recommend them!

        I second that - MANNA is great and you get to feel good about about it too! We use them all the time!

        Try Picnic (3131 Walnut St). We recently had a work lunch catered by them and they had amazing lunch boxes. They delivered to us here in University city, but they probably deliver many places throughout the city. Their number is (215) 222-1608. Plus you're supporting local food suppliers!
        We've had many work lunches catered by Day by Day and I find their food boring and non-gourmet.

          I heard Whole Foods does nice stuff like this, surprisingly reasonably priced. Thank you.

            Day by Day at 21st & Sansom. Exactly what you're looking for and far superior to Marathon.
