MSP - cheap breakfast catering/delivery?

s

I'm looking for someplace that can cater (or just deliver) a bunch of egg&cheese breakfast sandwiches. I currently live in NYC but am getting married in MPLS and want to offer egg&cheese or bacon/egg/cheese breakfast sandwiches for a quick brunch the morning after the wedding.

Any suggestions? Good places that'll allow bulk orders?

    i'd *can* the idea of breakfast sandwiches & do a different spread entirely-- breakfast sandwiches around here will be pricey and not what you are looking for in the first place. getting a local specialty would be more feasable, economical, & pleasing. what 'hood will the morning after brunch be in?

      I would agree that the egg sandwiches out here aren't as solid (and reasonable!) as the east coast. maybe some local pastries instead?

      p.j. murphys is always a crowd pleaser. Especially if the crowd is slightly hungover

        I'm thirding the fact that you probably won't be able to find what you want here. People don't really eat Kaiser rolls or egg and cheese sandwiches out here the way they do in New York.

        You could contact Common Roots, a newish cafe on Lyndale that makes their own bagels. Also A Baker's Wife in S. Minneapolis makes great pastries and I know can handle a large order (I know the owners and have been at many potlucks where they bring their treats :).

          I second A Baker's Wife. We have introduced many to their pastries. There hasn't been a disappointed person yet. My favorites are the creme brulee danish or the American tea cake. Give them a call.

      You could try contacting a local caterer instead of a restaurant. I'm sure someone can do what you want, or suggest good alternatives.

      I would try Abundant Catering or Signature Cafe. They are caterers that also have (or have had, in the case of Abundant) well-regarded restaurants.

      Or see this thread for other leads:
