$250 for an office breakfast??

I have $250 to put together a nice breakfast for the office (about 40 people). Looking for more than just the normal bagels, fruit and donuts we generally have around. I'd like to make this look nice and be something special (eggs, egg sandwiches ... something like that). Any ideas here? Area is westside/Bev Hills/Century City.

  1. Have you checked out Corner Bakery? While CB's catering menu doesn't have egg dishes/sandwiches, its regular menu does...

    1. i was going to suggest clementine - but think it might be a bit too pricy. their quiches are amazing though (bacon leek!).

      panera would probably match your price point. their baked egg souffles are really outstanding and high end. and i think they're only about $4/each. they also have other egg dishes/sandwiches.

      1. when i was at trader joe's yesterday, they were giving out free samples of individual eggy/cheesy/popover-type goodies.
        i don't remember what they were calling these little delights, but they were quite good. probably came out of the freezer section and were heated in a toaster oven.

          I believe you speak of the new mini Three Cheese Souffles. I got them for a little get-together, and everyone liked them very much!

          1. Six bucks a person? I'll bet even McDonald's charges that much for juice, a skimpy egg sandwich, potatoes, and coffee.

            My advice is, thrill half these people with a day off, and have Junior's cater "a nice breakfast" for the rest. Alternatively, remind your boss that it's Christmas.

              McD's? Really? Well, if one can go there... Jack has a special going on for two croissant breakfast sammies for $3.00; you can cut them in 1/2 and have plenty of $$ left over for flowers from TJ's along with coffee to-go from Peet's or the other one plus still have cash for fruit an various other breakfast-y thingies from where ever else.

                I'm sure you can find something on the menu from Clementine. Also, they will deliver.
