Caterer for baby shower in Palo Alto

armaburrito Jan 31, 2009 02:21 AM

I am hosting a baby shower in April and instead of slaving in the kitchen like I normally do, I want to hire a great caterer. I've hosted parties where we've had to pick up catering trays from various places but logistically it can be a nightmare going from place to place right before guests arrive. Does anyone know of a fantastic caterer that won't break the bank? I am willing to pony up some dough for great food but we are expecting 40-50 guests for brunch and I don't want to have to pay $50/person. Thanks in advance!

    We just had our wedding done by The Napkin Ring in Saratoga and were very pleased. Reasonably priced, good simple and delicious food and just a great experience overall.

          Not sure what type of food you'd like, but I know Piccadilly Catering makes an awesome cajun brunch. You can test it out on Sundays at their restaurant. They also cater other foods, but I'm not sure how good it is.

            Sorry can't help you with caterers but I'd recommend looking into Kan Zeman.

              You can get full meals from Kan Zeman, so you just have to do one pick up. I think Coconuts would also do something that would be good.
